A new trailer for American Hustle has arrived, and there are two main things I have noticed. First of all, there are only five people in it, and they’re all bigtime famous humans. (Actually, a child does sneak in there too for one second, but I’m not counting it.) And second of all, this trailer is full to the brim with 70s hairstyles, and not a single one of them should ever show their faces out-of-doors.
You’ve got fat Christian Bale with a comb-over, an ice cream sundae of hair poised to topple off of Jennifer Lawrence‘s head, and Bradley Cooper literally lining his scalp with tiny curlers. It’s a lot, you guys. I guess now that I think about it, Amy Adams and Jeremy Renner have pretty standard situations up top, but the other three are more than impressive enough to cancel them out.
For one thing, I wouldn’t expect Christmas Day to be a big movie day, but for another, isn’t that pretty late in the Oscar season? That’s like…five days before the end of the year, so there’s a good chance people will have already made up their minds, right? I don’t know anything, I just want someone to get in either a time machine or a screening room (or both) so they can watch it and tell me how it is. The suspense is killing me.
