It seems like it was only yesterday when we first laid hungry eyes on Christian Bale’s breathtaking combover and Bradley Cooper’s bitchin’ brillo in David O. Russell’s American Hustle. Today, the Gods of spread collars and Earth tones have blessed us with the bounty of the full trailer, and the only one with a plunging neckline deeper than Amy Adams is Bradley Cooper. It also shows Cooper in curlers, so I guess we have our answer as to how he got his hair like that. Holy hell does this look good. I’ve been a David O. Russell apologist since the days of I Heart Huckabees, but this time it looks like he ate Scorsese’s lunch while Marty was off shooting Spring Bankers.
I think it goes without saying that I would have sex with this entire cast. The girls for attraction, the boys for art.
Financed once again, by Annapurna Pictures. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, The Bling Ring notwithstanding, Megan Ellison is the best thing to happen to the film business in a long time. American Hustle is set to open in limited release December 13th, which I don’t really get. Are we really worried that Richie Rustbelt and Frieda Flyover won’t want to see this? Jeez, have a little faith. This thing should open wider than Christian Bale’s collar.
By the way, I’d pay to see Christian Bale’s over-the-top New Yorker from American Hustle argue with his over-the-top Masshole in The Fighter. Someone make that happen.
