Batman And Lois Lane Are Con Artists In American Hustle.

¡Hola, comrades! It is time once again for another edition of Cubano Review! El Presidente is busy pitching his new series idea to Animal Planet, Finding Chupacabra. In the meantime, I Juan Cena, finest jean-short wearing luchadore in all of West Newbury, Mass., am manning the CR newsroom for coverage of American Hustle, starring Batman, Lois Lane, and Hawkeye!

Well okay, American Hustle doesn’t really star Batman, Lois Lane, and Hawkeye, but it does star the actors that played those heroes, Christian Bale, Amy Adams and Jeremy Renner, along with Mystique portrayer Jennifer Lawrence! The film is said to be loosely based on the Abscam scandal of the late 1970s and early 1980s, when a number of political figures were brought down by an FBI sting operation.

Bale and Adams play con artists who is forced to aid a federal agent played by Bradley Cooper to help bring down fellow con artists and the politicians who love them. Renner plays a New Jersey “political operator” in the film, which I supposed is another word for “scumbag,” or at least should be.

Here is the full-length trailer, complete with slightly anachronistic use of Led Zeppelin’s “Good Times, Bad Times,” which came out in 1969.


 

The film also stars comedy megastar Lewis C.K., and...Robert De Niro! Because any truly great American film has to star either De Niro or Al Pacino, no?

American Hustle is directed by Silver Linings Playbook director David O. Russel, who also directed Bale in The Fighter, for which Bale won The Oscar for Best Supporting Actor. It’s scheduled for release on Dec. 25, just in time for 2013 Academy Award consideration. This movie has “Oscar bait” written all over it as well, and I don’t mean those toothy overgrown aquarium dwellers, either.
