The first trailer for David O. Russell's "American Hustle" has landed. Starring a knockout cast including Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper, Amy Adams, Jeremy Renner and Jennifer Lawrence, the film centers on the true story of the '70s ABSCAM operation where a con man (Bale) and his mistress (Adams) team up with a loose-cannon federal agent (Cooper) to, well, scam the scammers. Watch below, plus new images from the film.

The supporting cast includes Robert De Niro, Louis C.K., Alessandro Nivola and Michael Pena. Needless to say, the film has an awards-season release date of December 25.

Lawrence won her Best Actress Oscar earlier this year in Russell's "Silver Linings Playbook," while De Niro and Cooper nabbed nominations (as did Russell, for writing and directing). Bale won his Best Supporting Oscar for Russell's "The Fighter" in 2010, while Russell nabbed a directing nod, and Adams a Supporting Actress nomination.

The trailer is set to Led Zeppelin's "Good Times, Bad Times."

    If it was a Scorcese movie,the music would be a Rolling Stone's song and Dicaprio would replace Bale
