Thanks in part to plenty of awards season buzz, "American Hustle" just hit over $200 million at the worldwide box office.

Much of that income comes from the United States, where American audiences shelled out $138.7 million for the film. A gaggle of stars including Jennifer Lawrence, Amy Adams, Bradley Cooper, Christian Bale, and Jeremy Renner.

Hearing the news, chairman of Worldwide Marketing and Distribution for Sony Pictures Jeff Blake gushed, "Congratulations go to our filmmakers. David O. Russell has scored again with critics and audiences alike. He has delivered a tremendous film, one that has connected with moviegoers in every country around the world."

However, there's more to come as "American Hustle" has yet to open in Germany, Russia, and Korea.
