American Hustle Blu-ray Officially Announced

Posted February 3, 2014 04:53 PM by Webmaster

Sony PicturesSony Pictures Home Entertainment has officially announced that it will release on Blu-ray David O. Russell's (Silver Linings Playbook) latest project, American Hustle (2013), starring Christian Bale, Robert De Niro, Amy Adams, Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, Jeremy Renner, and Elisabeth R÷hm. Mastered in 4K, the release will be available for purchase online and in stored across the nation on March 18th.

American Hustle has been nominated for ten Academy Awards, including Best Motion Picture of the Year, Best Achievement in Directing, Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role (Christian Bale), and Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role (Amy Adams).

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 Fighter, Silver Linings Playbook), American Hustle defies genre, hinging on raw emotion, and life and death stakes.

Special Features:
  • "The Making of American Hustle" featurette
  • Deleted & Extended Scenes

I'll probably pick it up if it comes in a nice case. My least favourite best picture nominee so far (got another three to check out yet) but it's a nice fun breezy watch that'll make for a few good rewatches.

Maybe the closest Christian Bale will come to doing a 'comedy'. I'll pass, the story is similar to other more memorables movies.

Being Oscar time, Studios are getting smart with these blu ray releases instead of waiting many months. These are fast releases for such high caliber films. You can almost bet there will be a special edition coming down the road around Christmas. This movie is too great to be such bare bones special features. Definitely double dip for me!

Next to no special features... this is a sad reality. Will wait as many years as needed for a REAL edition worthy of my money.

Christian Bale gave a great performance, but the film overall didn't impress much, so I'm not sure if I'll pick this up.

Day one for me, the film is fantastic. Much better than the overrated Wolf of Wall Street.

Day 1.. this was a great film, had a great 70s vibe and goodfellas feel to it while still being somewhat original, the storys a little familiar but the acting is so great it cant be overlooked. Plus Jennifer Lawrence.

Me & a friend watched Wolf of Wall Street on a DVD copy we found online, we enjoyed it but it was far too long, we were about 1.5 Hours into the movie and thought we maybe had 15-30 minutes left only to realize there was still another 1.5 to go, it could have easily chopped 30 minutes. Regardless, both were fun films, but American Hustle really is the better of the two & The Critic Reviews, countless award wins & nominations, performances and great word of mouth speak for themselves

American Psycho was a classic. The only flaw was talentless Witherspoon.

American Hustle is a new movie and it's being struck from a 4K master, it should look absolutely gorgeous on Blu ray and it's an amazing film. Win win.

American Hustle is not a film for fence riders,either you like it or you don't...no grey. The misconception being that a star studded cast is the perfect recipe for making "a good film." Note, I did not say"successful."

Good movie, will pick up eventually. Bale is the man. Not sure why people are predicting a double dip, I don't think The Fighter or Silver Linings Playbook (Russell's last 2 films) got multiple releases. I guess a Best Picture Award could change that though...

^ Different studios plus The Fighter and SLP appear to have more complete supplemental packages to begin with than what's being touted on this news release for AH (plus SLP BD is not even a year old yet).

Good movie. Not great, just good. Bale was great. Adams, though a talented actress, was miscast in the sultry role here. And am I the only one noticing Bradley Cooper's limited scope? His talent runs the gamut of emotions from A to B, either coy and charming or fast talking, intense-eyed earnest.

@mredman: Nominations? Sandra Bullock has been nominated a bunch and she's the female equivalent of Keanu Reeves.

Adams is a great actress who'll play every role the best she can, but that doesn't mean every role is for her. She's too WASPy for the American Hustle role. The fact of the matter is she's cute, approachable and has the kind of non-threatening image the Academy wants to put in front of the American public.

And I love that it will be Mastered In 4K.

I guess I'm just not down with David O. Russell. I found American Hustle to be pretty mediocre, like shades of Scorsese if he were going through the motions. Meh, no reason for me to ever see it again but I guess I can see why others would see some appeal.

Regarding American Psycho, Witherspoon was fine in her role as the completely oblivious fiancee.

I am glad there isn't many special features. Leaves more room for bitrate which means the picture won't suffer esp if they are doing a 4K transfer.
