Christian Bale and Jennifer Lawrence star in new trailer for American Hustle: watch now

"We all hustle to survive"

A new trailer has arrived for David O. Russell's American Hustle, a glamorous retelling of the Abscam sting operation designed to expose political corruption in the 1970s.

Christian Bale heads up the film as slippery con man Irving Rosenfeld, who teams up with Bradley Cooper's FBI agent in an attempt to bring down Jeremy Renner's crooked Democrat.

Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Adams are also along for the ride as Bale's wife and mistress to complete what looks to be an intoxicating ensemble.

Take a look at the new trailer, below:



As well as the incredible cast, the '70s feels is pleasingly pronounced here, while Bale appears to have gone to typically extreme lengths to get himself "in shape" for his latest role.

Directed by Russell and co-starring Louis C.K., Michael Peña and Jack Jones, American Hustle will open in the UK on 20 December 2013.
