It's a fantastic time for fans of both Christian Bale and Jennifer Lawrence. The two Oscar-winners will appear together next month in David O. Russellís eagerly-awaited disco-era, crime dramedy "American Hustle," (out on December 13th and everywhere on December 18th).
But if you want a small taste of their fiery chemistry -- well, luckily, you can: check out the first TV spot for the film, which has Bale playing a portly rip-off artist who has no choice but to participate in a sting operation for a ballsy, curly-haired FBI agent (played by Bradley Cooper), while Lawrence is Bale's young quick-tempered other half, who sometimes has the tendency to eavesdrop on her husband's phone conversations. Stuck in the middle: Amy Adams as Bale's mistress-slash-crime partner and Jeremy Renner as the dirty politician at the center of the investigation.
Based on an actual criminal case from the 70s, watch how "everybody hustles to survive" in this new 30-second commercial, featuring the Led Zeppelin song, "Good Times Bad Times."
