Update: Now in high res! First trailer for David O. Russell's American Hustle has a lot of ass shaking and nostalgic outfits

Aug. 1, 2013by: Paul Shirey

We've seen the crazy hair and outfits in stills for David O. Russell's AMERICAN HUSTLE, but we've yet to see all that nostalgia in action until now. Today, GMA premiered the trailer, which plays a lot like a Martin Scorsese film. There's very little in the way of dialogue or story, but that doesn't preclude this from looking like all sorts of awesome. It's a relatively spoiler-free affair, but chock full of ass shaking, popping, and spanking, all amidst the glitz and glam of big hair and gaudy jewelry that populated the late '70's and early '80's.

Good times, bad times:

This is a fictionalized account of the real-life ABSCAM sting operation, which had the F.B.I. working with real-life con men to help target trafficking of stolen property and public corruption. With Russell's sensibilities and a stunning cast that includes Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper, Amy Adams, Jeremy Renner, and Jennifer Lawrence, this looks to be a tremendous follow up to the director's last outing, SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK.

AMERICAN HUSTLE starts the con on December 25, 2013.

Extra Tidbit: Man, is Christmas day getting packed this year or what? The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, 47 Ronin, American Hustle, Jersey Boys, and Jack Ryan. I know where I'll be after the presents are opened...

After Three Kings I was a lifetime fan of O. Russell's. Nice to see him on top, it's well deserved.

...Not watching the trailer

Been trying to keep my expectations and familiarly level for exciting movies coming down the pike, so I'm curbing my trailer intake - and I'm sure this is definitely a sure thing - but any sign of Louis C.K. here?

"People believe what they want to believe, Alfred."

That was a nicely-edited trailer (great choice of music with Good Times Bad Times) and Amy Adams and Jennifer Lawrence do look hot in this one. David O. Russell kinda looks like Christoph Waltz, too.

I'm not feeling it. But I don't want to ruin the green bar at the top, so Neutral!

David O. Russell made The Fighter, which I adored (and then Warrior came along and whooped its ass, in my humble opinion; both amazing movies, though), and of course Silver Linings Playbook, which was a masterpiece. More of a restrained kind of masterpiece, but a masterpiece nonetheless, and it connected with me on so many emotional levels.

But that trailer for this film is not giving me a good impression. I'm not sure I like where this is going. Of course, if it turns out to be good, it

But that trailer for this film is not giving me a good impression. I'm not sure I like where this is going. Of course, if it turns out to be good, it wouldn't be the first time a trailer has made a great movie look like crap. Pacific Rim is the most recent example of this for myself.

Obviously I'll keep an eye on this, but I'm not as excited for it as I should be.

Amy Adams Ruins it...

For every women in Hollywood for me. Did you see that body when she dropped that fur coat? This woman is close to 40 and still is rocking it.

Plus, is anyone getting a Deniro vibe off of Bale's performance?

So suck on that Clark.

They sold me with Good Times Bad Times.

Apparently DeNiro is in this as well? Trailer does a damn good job of hiding that-

Never liked Renner, so I've never really had the chance to become sick of him.

I would have thought this is the rival news team for Anchorman 2.

This looks good!! And nice to see Renner playing to his strengths and doing some quality acting aside from trying to attach himself to every franchise on the market right now. I'll be checking this one out over Christmas for sure.

Looks phenomenal. And it stars my girlfriend, Amy Adams. I mean, she doesn't know she's my girlfriend, but really that's just a formality. She's quite the minx in bed, I might add, in my imagination.

Really anticipating this film alone on the powerhouse cast.
