The Star-Studded "Amsterdam" Cast Get Into Character in New Posters
A set of new character posters shared on Sept. 12 offers a new look at the cast of "Amsterdam," the latest film from writer and director David O. Russell, who is known for "American Hustle" and "Silver Linings Playbook." "Amsterdam" has a star-studded cast, including major names like Taylor Swift, Margot Robbie, John David Washington, and Robert De Niro. It's a 1930s-era crime drama that follows a trio of friends as they become embroiled in a murder mystery that connects them to "one of the most shocking secret plots in American history," per the press release.
"We formed a pact and swore to protect each other no matter what. But sometimes life is perfect until it's not," Christian Bale says in an ominous voice-over in a trailer released on July 6. Elsewhere in the trailer, De Niro questions Bale, Washington, and Robbie and agrees to help them fend off murder accusations because, as he says, "My friend was killed because of something monstrous that he had seen."
The film marks the third time Russell has worked with Bale; the pair also collaborated on "The Fighter" and "American Hustle." It also stars Robbie, who will star in the forthcoming movie "Barbie" alongside Ryan Gosling. Other major names include Swift, who most recently starred in 2019's bizarre rendition of "Cats" as Bombalurina, and a whole host of other luminaries. Read on for more information about "Amsterdam," including the film's plot, cast, release date, trailer, character posters, and more.
"Amsterdam" tells the story of three friends — a doctor, a nurse, and an attorney played by Robbie, Washington, and Bale — who find themselves in Amsterdam and become involved in a murder that connects them to a shocking secret plot.
The friends are "in a situation where we're accused of killing someone, which is not true," Bale says during the trailer. The film will reportedly interweave real events with fictitious ones.
"Amsterdam" Release Date
"Amsterdam" comes to theaters on Oct. 7.
