American Hustle Makes Itself Available on Blu-ray March 18th

Alright, you knew this moment was coming and I cannot wait to ring the new year in officially now that we are in it with a Blu-ray screening of American Hustle!  You know what I be saying?  That’s right!  In my world, the coveted picture of the year is going to come down to this, Gravity and unfortunately 12 Years a Slave, but thou hast no fear…it’s going to be American Hustle all the way.  I’m as sure of it as I was the 2013 Denver Broncos losing by 40 points in the biggest game of the year (does that instill confidence or what?).  Actually, I stand more of a chance with this prediction!  Haha.  So without further ado, let’s join Sony Pictures Home Entertainment in talking everything American Hustle below…and oh yeah…don’t forget to get your pre-order in!

CULVER CITY, Calif. (Feb. 3, 2014) — Nominated for 10 Academy Awards and winner of three Golden Globes, the critically acclaimed, genre-defying AMERICAN HUSTLE will be available on Blu-ray Combo Pack3, DVD and Digital HD UltraViolet March 18 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.  Mastered in 4K, AMERICAN HUSTLE tells the story of a pair of brilliant con artists forced to work with an FBI agent on a case that ultimately erupts into one of the most stunning scandals to rock our nation.  The film is co-written and directed by three-time Oscar®-nominated David O. Russell and stars Academy Award® winner Christian Bale, two-time Academy Award® nominee Bradley Cooper, five time Academy Award® nominee Amy Adams, two-time Academy Award®nominee Jeremy Renner, Emmy® and Grammy® winner Louis C.K.  and Academy Award® winner Jennifer Lawrence10.  The all-star cast also won a Screen Actors Guild® Award for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture.

Blu-ray and DVD bonus materials include “The Making of American Hustle,” a behind-the-scenes featurette with filmmakers and cast introducing the dazzling world of AMERICAN HUSTLE and explaining why they were captivated by the story and its characters. Also included are more than 20 minutes of deleted and extended scenes from the cutting room floor.



A fictional film set in the alluring world of one of the most stunning scandals to rock our nation, AMERICAN HUSTLE tells the story of brilliant con man Irving Rosenfeld (Bale), who along with his equally cunning and seductive British partner Sydney Prosser (Adams) is forced to work for a wild FBI agent Richie DiMaso (Cooper).  DiMaso pushes them into a world of Jersey powerbrokers and mafia that’s as dangerous as it is enchanting. Renner plays Carmine Polito, the passionate, volatile, New Jersey political operator caught between the con-artists and Feds.  Irving’s unpredictable wife Rosalyn (Lawrence) could be the one to pull the thread that brings the entire world crashing down.  Like David O. Russell’s previous films (The FighterSilver Linings Playbook), AMERICAN HUSTLE  defies genre, hinging on raw emotion, and life and death stakes.

AMERICAN HUSTLE is directed by David O. Russell from a screenplay by Eric Warren Singer and David O. Russell.  Charles Roven, Richard Suckle, Megan Ellison and Jonathan Gordon produced, with Matthew Budman, Bradley Cooper, Eric Warren Singer and George Parra serving as executive producers.


Blu-ray & DVD Bonus Features Include:

 “The Making of American Hustle” featurette

Deleted & Extended Scenes

AMERICAN HUSTLE has a run time of about 129 minutes & is rated R for pervasive language, some sexual content & brief violence.


ONE HECK OF A PROMOTER!!! Also a Dreamer, Producer, Agent of Love, Film Lover, Writer of Screenplays and a Devoted Apostle to all things Ford Mustangs (the real ones with V8's!). Some of my favorite films include FIGHT CLUB, MOULIN ROUGE, THE DARK KNIGHT, STAR WARS alongside television shows such as SEINFELD, 24, SANFORD & SON and even the often loathed in the geek community BIG BANG THEORY. Outside of my three lives I live I also enjoy spending time with my girlfriend and our three girls (of the furry kind).
