Oh man, the 70s were not an attractive time when it comes to clothing choices. If there was any doubt of that, check out these new images from the upcoming American Hustle.

When not even Bradley Cooper can pull something off, you know it was a bad idea. I imagine an entire generation of men look back at their ill-advised perms (although we've been assured that Cooper's curls are not a perm) and just shake their heads.

However, with the team assembled for the upcoming American Hustle - Bradley Cooper, Christian Bale, Amy Adams, Jennifer Lawrence, and Jeremy Renner, with director David O'Russell - we can be pretty certain that the story will overpower any and all bad hair.

Bale, in another "not Batman" role (you can see his other upcoming work with this Out of the Furnace trailer), plays a con-man who garners the attention of FBI agent Bradley Cooper.

Following the true story of the Abscam scandal, in which five Congressmen and a U.S. Senator ended up being convicted of corruption, American Hustle is not lacking in the drama department.

The film opens in theaters on December 25th. Same day as the new Keanu Reeves movie - check out the 47 Ronin trailer now!
