The official trailer for “American Hustle” has dropped, and though the film debuts on Christmas Day, it isn’t exactly wholesome.

The preview shows an unlikely gang made up of Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, Christian Bale and Amy Adams.

Bale sports a comb over and a few extra pounds as a con artist named Irvin Rosenfeld, who with his British partner Sydney Prosser (Adams) ends up working alongside FBI agent Richie DiMaso (Cooper, with a mean perm).

“DiMaso pushes them into a world of Jersey powerbrokers and mafia that’s as dangerous as it is enchanting, according to the film’s official site.

The film reunites Cooper and Lawrence with director David O. Russell, whose last film, “Silver Linings Playbook,” earned the actress an Oscar.

The A-list star will play Bale’s “unpredictable wife” Rosalyn in the project, who “could be the one to pull the thread that brings the entire world crashing down.”

“American Hustle” opens in theaters on December 25.
