'American Hustle' Dated and Detailed for Blu-ray

Posted Wed Feb 5, 2014 at 10:00 AM PST by

David O. Russell's Oscar-nominated film arrives on Blu-ray next month. Pre-orders are available here!

In an early announcement to retailers, Sony is preparing 'American Hustle' for Blu-ray on March 18.

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.

'American Hustle' has received ten Academy Award-nominations, 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).

The Blu-ray/DVD/Ultraviolet Combo Pack will feature 1080p video (mastered in 4K), a lossless soundtrack, and supplements include The Making of American Hustle and Deleted & Extended Scenes.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $40.99.
