We were already excited to see 'American Hustle' because it's the latest film from the always-interesting David O. Russell and because it has one of the strongest ensembles in recent memory. But now, with the release of two new images, we're really excited to see it because it apparently pulls no punches when it comes to completely '80s-ifying stars Christian Bale, Amy Adams and Bradley Cooper. They look ludicrous...and also kind of awesome.
David O Russell
Looks like the Dark Knight is a bit down on his luck...or is he? Christian Bale was recently photographed in Boston looking drastically different than the Bale to which we've become accustomed. So why is our latest Batman looking like Tom Cruise in 'Tropic Thunder'?
Though 2012's awards season has only recently come to an end, that doesn't mean filmmakers and studios aren't already plotting 2013's Oscar campaign. And it looks like David O. Russell wants to win a little gold statue as -- for the third time in four years -- he's got a new film scheduled to come out at the end of the year.
David O. Russell is continuing his working relationship with Jennifer Lawrence on a third project -- 'The Ends of the Earth,' which has had Lawrence attached for some time now.
Jennifer Lawrence is emerging as the clear frontrunner to win Best Actress at the 2013 Oscars for her role in 'Silver Linings Playbook' alongside Bradley Cooper. So what will she do as a follow-up? Lawrence has signed on to reteam with Cooper and her 'Silver Linings' director David O. Russell on the upcoming film 'American Bulls--t.'
Well, it just figures that Christian Bale would be in the latest David O. Russell film, but we're not complaining. Bale joins fellow Russell alumni Amy Adams and Bradley Cooper, as well as Jeremy Renner, in a new untitled project, formerly known as 'American Bulls---.'
'Silver Linings Playbook' may be a buzzed about Oscar contender, but more than that, it looks like a good movie. Not a "Good" Movie like 'The King's Speech' but an actual good movie. Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper star in this tale of people who feel like damaged goods coming together, and now there's a great clip from the film online.
Having won an audience prize at the Toronto International Film Festival, David O. Russell's 'Silver Linings Playbook' is now a big dog in this year's Oscar race. Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence star in this film about messed up people trying to reconnect with the world, and now there's a mushier second trailer.
'Silver Linings Playbook' asks an important question: are audiences interested in watching Katniss Everdeen and that guy from 'The Hangover' try to overcome crippling sadness for two hours? The success of the film depends on the answer to that question being a "yes." The new poster for the film does its best to convince you of that "yes," mainly by reminding you of how gorgeous its lead actors are.
Jeremy Renner's career has taken off since 'The Hurt Locker' and he has become the latest leading man in Hollywood. Having now appeared as Hawkeye in 'The Avengers' and replacing Matt Damon in the upcoming 'The Bourne Legacy,' Renner has his sights set on another leading man role.
