This Friday sees the expanded release of David O. Russell’s delirious “American Hustle” and with the awards contender facing some stiff competition at the box office, you better believe a blitz is on with the director and his cast doing their bit to entice audiences to take a chance on the virtuoso film over the holidays.
First up is a new clip (via She Knows) from the film that features Christian Bale and Amy Adams’ shady con couple in the former's dry cleaning business. It’s a pretty short clip so you don’t have to worry about spoiling anything for yourself but it’s a great taste of the oddball characters the two actors brought to life.
Moving behind the camera now, Russell sat down for half an hour with Movie City News as part of their DP/30 interview series. It’s a frank and fascinating conversation, as most of Russell’s interviews are, that does get a bit into spoiler territory so you might want to bookmark it until you actually see the film.
“American Hustle” expands nationwide tomorrow. Watch the Russell interview below along with the clip.
