‘American Hustle’ Clip Previews Jennifer Lawrence’s Explosive Cooking Skills
Jennifer Lawrence gave an incredible performance in David O. Russell‘s ‘Silver Linings Playbook,’ ultimately winning her the Oscar for Best Actress. From the looks of ‘American Hustle,’ Russell’s follow-up, she might just have another award under her belt.
MTV debuted a new ‘American Hustle’ clip, previewing Jennifer Lawrence’s comedic turn as Christian Bale‘s onscreen wife. The film takes place in the late ’70s and follows the famous sting operation which saw a con-man (Bale) and his partner (Amy Adams) forced to work for the FBI in infiltrating the corrupt world of New Jersey powerbrokers and mafia. Lawrence — for all her hysterical cooking techniques, verbal gut punches and golden tracksuit — may or may not hold the key to bringing down everything.
‘American Hustle’ also stars Bradley Cooper and Jeremy Renner, and looks to be another Oscar contender for Mr. Russell. Nominations in the major categories, including Best Actor, Actress and Picture, already seem like a lock.
‘American Hustle’ is set to debut in limited release December 13, and will open wide on December 18. Watch the latest TV spot below, and let us know what you think in the comments.
