The Year's Best Trailer: David O. Russell's 'American Hustle'

A toast to a new era: The first trailer for David O. Russell's "American Hustle" has debuted on Good Morning America, accompanied by the sounds of Led Zeppelin's "Good Times Bad Times."

Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, Amy Adams and Jeremy Renner star in Russell's "Silver Linings Playbook" follow-up, which is based -- in part -- on the ABSCAM scandal from the late 1970s and early 1980s. (Louis C.K. and Robert De Niro also star.) "[Audiences] can expect a wild world of amazing characters," Russell said to Good Morning America host Josh Elliott after the teaser's premiere, a redundant comment if there ever was one considering the "American Hustle" trailer features Cooper's character in curlers and Bale playing a young woman's behind (Jennifer Lawrence?) like a bongo drum. (To say nothing of the part where Cooper's character smashes a telephone into what looks like Louis C.K.'s face.)

Sony will release "American Hustle" in December. Head over to GMA's website to watch the full segment with Russell. Listen to "Good Times Bad Times" below, just because:
