'American Hustle' TV spot: 'Good Times Bad Times' for Christian Bale and Amy Adams -- VIDEO

Sometimes, the right song can make all the difference to establishing a mood for a movie. But the absolutely perfect song can go even further and provide meaning. Director David O. Russell is a connoisseur of music, so it’s probably no accident that the TV spots for his upcoming movie, American Hustle, are set to Led Zeppelin’s “Good Times Bad Times.” Yes, it immediately evokes the setting of the film — the 1970s. But the lyrics are even more insightful for his characters, a coterie of ne’er-do-well con artists, corrupt pols, and compromised cops.

“In the days of my youth, I was told what it means to be a man,
Now I’ve reached that age, I’ve tried to do all those things the best I can.
No matter how I try, I find my way into the same old jam.”

The latest TV spot, titled “Unexpected,” showcases Christian Bale as an amusing con-man hanging on by a thread — much like his marvelous comb-over.

'American Hustle' trailer: Bradley Cooper gets a perm, Christian Bale gets a belly

Everything is cloaked in the gritty, suffocating glamour of sequins, cigarette smoke, high-stakes cons and hairspray in the newest trailer for David O. Russell’s American Hustle. Stars Bradley Cooper, Christian Bale, Jennifer Lawrence, and Amy Adams are in perfect 1970s form — especially Cooper in those hair curlers.

Russell’s ensemble drama follows a con artist (Bale) and his partner (Adams) as they team up with an eager FBI agent (Cooper) to expose other players of the Camden, New Jersey underworld. Lawrence is all grown up in the trailer below and Jeremy Renner, Robert De Niro, and Louis C.K. also appear in the star-studded period pic.

Check out the latest trailer, featuring the Electric Light Orchestra anthem “10538 Overture.”

Casting Net: Kurt Russell in talks for 'Fast and Furious 7'; Plus, Bradley Cooper, more

• Hollywood veteran Kurt Russell is in talks to join the seventh installment of the Fast & Furious franchise in an undisclosed part for director James Wan (The Conjuring). We kind of hope he’ll just be playing Snake Plissken. The famously private actor has been somewhat absent from movies recently. 2007’s Death Proof was his last high-profile role. Russell has a few more projects in the works including the Jay Baruchel-starring comedy The Art of the Steal, and Bone Tomahawk, a Western with Peter Sarsgaard and Jennifer Carpenter. [Variety]

Casting Net: Elizabeth Olsen for 'Avengers: Age of Ultron'?; Plus, Bradley Cooper in talks to voice Rocket Raccoon, more

• Elizabeth Olsen is reportedly in talks to play Wanda Maximoff (also known as the Scarlet Witch) in Joss Whedon’s The Avengers: Age of Ultron. The Marvel character is the offspring of Magneto (an X-Men character and Fox property) and boasts the ability to reshape reality and alter probabilities. Olsen broke out in the independent world with her role in Martha Marcy May Marlene, but it seems like she has broader, more mainstream plans — she recently wrapped Godzilla and will be appearing in Spike Lee’s Oldboy remake. [Bleeding Cool]

Casting Net: Bradley Cooper back in the Lance Armstrong fold, more

• Remember way back in January when we all thought Bradley Cooper was going to play Lance Armstrong and then he basically told us all to cool it because he hadn’t even heard of the J.J. Abrams/Bad Robot project? Now, eight months later, Cooper is in fact close to boarding a different Armstrong pic, Red Blooded American, as a producer and a potential star for director Jay Roach (Meet the Parents). Cooper, who scored an Oscar nomination for his work in Silver Linings Playbook, would either play Armstrong or Tyler Hamilton, a teammate of the disgraced cyclist in the Warner Bros. and Atlas Entertainment pic, with a script from Side Effects writer Scott Z. Burns. Should Cooper take on the role of Hamilton, we still have our own wish list for the part of Armstrong. In addition to the Paramount/Bad Robot pic, Working Title also has an Armstrong movie in the works, with Ain’t Them Bodies Saints Ben Foster starring and Stephen Frears (The Queen) directing.

Bradley Cooper on 'The Place Beyond the Pines' and preparing to play slain soldier Chris Kyle in the upcoming 'American Sniper'

Over the course of his career, Bradley Cooper has become an expert at playing all the shades of the asshole rainbow. But since 2011’s Limitless showed Hollywood that The Hangover star can open a film all by himself, Cooper has been receiving more varied roles in vastly more ambitious projects, like 2012’s Silver Linings Playbook and this year’s The Place Beyond the Pines, which hits DVD and Blu-ray tomorrow. “I think the opportunities really started to happen after Limitless came out and did well,” says Cooper. “I owe it all to The Hangover, and that allowed me to do Limitless, and Limitless definitely paved the road for directors to take a chance.” READ FULL STORY

'American Hustle' trailer has Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, Amy Adams, and Christian Bale looking straight out of the 1970s

There’s your typical Oscar-hopeful December release, and then there’s American Hustle, David O. Russell’s follow-up to last year’s Silver Linings Playbook.

It’s a reunion of sorts as Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence and Robert De Niro once again partner with director Russell, this time joined by Russell’s The Fighter heavyweights Christian Bale and Amy Adams. The 1970s-set picture will focus on the true story of Abscam, a famous FBI sting operation. The story centers around a notorious financial con artist (Bale) and his mistress/partner in crime (Adams), who were forced to work with a rogue federal agent (Cooper) to turn the tables on mobsters and politicians. “Everyone is playing someone they’ve never played before,” Russell explained on Good Morning America this morning. “…The economy, like it is today, was in a tough place,and people very eager if not desperate to make something happen, and when people are like that lots of crazy things can happen.”

Check out the trailer — full of ’70s hairdos (Cooper’s got a perm!) and featuring Led Zeppelin’s “Good Times Bad Times” — below: READ FULL STORY

Steven Spielberg to direct 'American Sniper,' starring Bradley Cooper

Steven Spielberg has lined up his next directorial endeavor. There’s been uncertainty about what project would next have the multi-Oscar-winner in the director’s chair since he put Robopocalypse on hold, but he is now set to helm Bradley Cooper’s American Sniper, EW has confirmed. THR first reported the news.

The film is an adaptation of American Sniper: The Autobiography of the Most Lethal Sniper in U.S. Military History. Cooper will star as late Navy SEAL sniper Chris Kyle, who has a record 150-plus confirmed kills. The book, which spent 18 weeks on the New York Times best-seller list, chronicles Kyle’s decade-long military career, including multiple combat tours in Iraq. READ FULL STORY

Bradley Cooper drops out of 'Jane Got a Gun'

And another one bites the dust. EW has confirmed that Bradley Cooper is the latest big name to exit Jane Got a Gun, a western starring Natalie Portman in its title role. Cooper was set to play an outlaw who swears revenge against a rival gunslinger (Noah Emmerich) — a part he inherited after two successive leading men dropped out of the film.

Originally, Portman was to star opposite Michael Fassbender — but Fassbender abruptly left the project in early March. According to The Hollywood Reporter, his exit was motivated by scheduling conflicts; several delays had pushed back Jane‘s production start date, and Fassbender needed to be free to film X-Men: Days of Future Past, which is currently in production.

Fassbender was replaced by Jude Law, and Jane was scheduled to finally begin shooting on March 18. But original director Lynne Ramsay failed to show up for the first day of filming, indicating that she had quit the production — and prompting Law to exit the film as well.

'Hangover Part III' trailer: Chow -- ironically -- is into cock-fighting -- VIDEO

“When we get together, bad things happen and people get hurt…” “Yeah, that’s the point. It’s funny.”

The Wolfpack will run wild again on May 24 when The Hangover Part III arrives in theaters. We’ve known for some time that Alan (Zach Galifianakis) might need some psychological attention, especially following the death of his father. The new trailer finally explains the hows and whys that send the guys — minus Doug, who’s kidnapped! — south of the border in pursuit of the maniacal Chow (Ken Jeong), who happened to steal $21 million from a royally pissed off John Goodman. It could be worse: Think how bad it would’ve been for the guys if they crossed Goodman’s baddie on Shabbos!

Watch the clip below. But beware, chickens are the new tigers. READ FULL STORY
