The first trailer has dropped for Hustlers, the new movie about a real group of strippers-turned-con-artists, and we’re now counting down the days until its release.
Hustlers – based on an exhilarating New York Magazine article about the strippers who robbed their corrupt Wall Street customers of thousands of dollars – has a new trailer, and we’re so here for it. The film’s all-star cast includes Riverdale’s Lili Reinhart, legendary superstar Jennifer Lopez, body-posi queen Lizzo, former stripper herself Cardi B and Crazy Rich Asians’ Constance Wu, alongside Julia Stiles and Keke Palmer. While the trailer doesn’t give too much away, it looks like Constance Wu’s character, Destiny, will join the gang of ‘hustlers’ led by Lopez’ Ramona, before things go awry and the police get involved.
The trailer is accompanied by Cardi’s aptly-titled banger “Money”, and starts with J-Lo teaching Wu to pole-dance, while telling her that stealing from sleazy, affluent men is like “working with animals”. Amen.
Later, popping bottles of champagne with the rest of the gang J-Lo tells them: ‘We’re a family now. A family with money!’ They can absolutely take all of our money.
Hustlers is in cinemas 13th September. Check out the trailer below…
