About Amsterdam Movie:

  • Filming was originally set to begin in March 2021 in Boston on a $50 million budget, but was delayed because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Filming was moved to Los Angeles, California after the cast did not want to travel to Boston amid the pandemic.
  • Principal photography took place over 49 days between January and March 2021.
  • This is the third collaboration between David O. Russell and Christian Bale following The Fighter (2010) and American Hustle (2013).

  • The film was previewed at the 2022 CinemaCon on April 27, 2022.
