In the newest teaser, bad-haired Bale and Cooper fight for power (Bale’s character, a con artist, says he’s “find[ing] a way to survive”; Cooper’s FBI agent says “I’m running the show, I’m the quarterback”) while Lawrence, who plays Bale’s wife, tries to listen in on her husband’s phone conversations.

Adams plays Bale’s partner-in-con-crime in the movie, and Renner plays a shady politician.

The film opens in limited release on Dec. 13, expanding to wide release Dec. 18.
