These first set of images have arrived online from ’The Crossing,’ the first film in over four years to be directed by John Woo. Set against the upheavals of revolutionary China in 1949, the film is the story of three couples from different backgrounds who make a fateful voyage on a ship fleeing China to Taiwan. The screenplay is by Wang Huiling, who previously co-wrote ‘Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon’ and who adapted ‘Lust Caution.’
Starring Zhang Ziyi, Tong Dawei, Huang Xiaoming, Song Hye-kyo, Takeshi Kaneshiro and Masami Nagasawa, ’The Crossing’ is being split into two parts and should be out in 2014. John Woo has racked up numerous credits and accolades in the past years, but has not moved behind the camera since the $80 million historical epic ‘Red Cliff,”’ released in two parts in 2008 and 2009 respectively.

Sony Pictures has premiered this new clip from David O. Russell’s ‘American Hustle.’ The film opens in New York and Los Angeles on December 13th before going wide on December 18th in the US. Written by Eric Singer and O. Russell, and starring Christian Bale, Amy Adams, Jeremy Renner, Alessandro Nivola, Louis CK, Michael Pena, Jack Huston, Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence and Robert De Niro, the drama is based on the true story of a notorious financial con artist (Christian Bale) and his mistress/partner in crime (Amy Adams), who were forced to work with an out of control federal agent (Bradley Cooper) to turn the tables on other con artists, mobsters, and politicians. At the epicenter of the entire tale is the passionate and volatile leader of the New Jersey state assembly (Jeremy Renner) who is also the local hero and mayor of impoverished Camden. ‘American Hustle’ is set for December 20th in the UK.
A fictional film set in the alluring world of one of the most stunning scandals to rock the States, American Hustle tells the story of brilliant con man Irving Rosenfeld (Christian Bale), who along with his equally cunning and seductive British partner Sydney Prosser (Amy Adams) is forced to work for a wild FBI agent Richie DiMaso (Bradley Cooper). DiMaso pushes them into a world of Jersey powerbrokers and mafia that’s as dangerous as it is enchanting. Jeremy Renner is Carmine Polito, the passionate, volatile, New Jersey political operator caught between the con-artists and Feds. Irving’s unpredictable wife Rosalyn (Jennifer Lawrence) could be the one to pull the thread that brings the entire world crashing down.
