Amy Adams, Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence star in the '70s-set drama.

The first full-length trailer for American Hustle has debuted, showing us a rich 1970s world where the men sport curlers and potbellies and the women hustle for both love and money.

David O. Russell's upcoming film features an all-star cast including Amy Adams, Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence and Jeremy Renner, who portray con artists and investigators living the life in the '70s.

The two-and-a-half-minute trailer shows Cooper's character wearing tiny curlers, Lawrence being a mom with questionable values and Bale acting as a greasy and confident con man who is able to woo Adams' character with his bravado.
