The film festivals are over. Now it’s time for the public to decide. It’s Oscars season at the cinema, and the next few months will see the biggest directors and the hottest stars strutting their stuff in ever-more audacious ways. i-D holds its breath for five of the most anticipated films of the next few months.
"From Scarface to The Godfather to Goodfellas, American cinema is built on the mafia. But it’s been a while since a gangster interpreted the American Dream for our viewing pleasure, so forgive a length of dribble when, on 1st August this year, David O.Russell released a new trailer for American Hustle. One of those increasingly rare things - an A-list ensemble crime drama - this sees Amy Adams, Jennifer Lawrence, Christian Bale, Jerry Renner and Bradley Cooper as an array of fraudsters, FBI insiders and con-men. In the space of four movies - Three Kings, I Heart Huckabees, The Fighter and Silver Lining’s Playbook - O.Russell has established him as one of the most bankable directors in Hollywood. With just four frame-long glimpses of a sashaying Jennifer Lawrence, he’s set the stage to make his first American classic."
