While it wasn’t quite a world premiere, over the weekend, the AFI Film Festival was lucky enough to screen the first six minutes of David O. Russell‘s forthcoming “American Hustle.” And yes, at least from what was shown, this should live up to expectations, with our man on the ground saying, “from what we’ve seen thus far that frothy period will be massively entertaining indeed.” And with about a month to go before this hits theaters, Columbia Pictures is finally getting ready to uh, hustle, this flick.
The first TV spot for the movie has dropped, making ample use of the Led Zeppelin tune they likely paid a mint for to use in the ads. And this all looks like high energy, wickedly fun stuff, with this ad showcasing a lot of new material making it well worth a watch. Meanwhile, the dedicated folks over at Baleheads Blog have dug up a couple new snaps of the movie, filling today’s quotient for wigs and polyester.
“American Hustle” arrives on December 18th.
