And the clock continues to tick down for “American Hustle,” it remains, along with “The Wolf Of Wall Street,” the only true question mark of the awards season. Is it going to put David O. Russell back in the awards race following two big successes with “The Fighter” and “Silver Linings Playbook,” or is just a big piece of pop eye candy? We’ll leave the answer to the pundits for now, and just enjoy this new clip instead.
This latest look at the movie, running nearly two minutes long, gathers up 3/4 of the core of the ensemble—Jennifer Lawrence, Christian Bale and Jeremy Renner—and nicely conveys the excess of the lifestyle this tale of politics and corruption is set against. And keep your ears wide open because right at the beginning of the scene, every so briefly, we’re pretty sure that’s Robert De Niro‘s voice (yep, he’s in the movie, but his role is apparently small, just fyi).
Enough talk, watch below. “American Hustle” opens on December 18th.
