The first full length trailer for Hustlers dropped today, and with a cast consisting of (deep breath) Jennifer Lopez, Constance Wu, Cardi B, Lizzo, Lilli Reinhart, Julia Stiles, and Keke Palmer, you better keep your money close and your “Wall Street douchebags” closer because they are coming for your cash.
The story, based off a New York Magazine piece called “The Hustlers at Scores,” follows a group of strip club workers who turn the buck on their Wall Street patrons. As the New York Magazine tagline reads, it’s a story about “a few strippers who stole from (mostly) rich, (usually) disgusting, (in their minds) pathetic men and gave to, well, themselves.” What really brings the whole trailer to life though is that cast. I’d give all that hustled money to spend five minutes in a room with Constance Wu, Lizzo, and Cardi B just to experience the absolute insanity that would surely follow.
Set for a September 13 release, the film is directed by Lorene Scafaria (Seeking a Friend for the End of the World) and produced in part by Will Ferrell and Adam McKay. In this trailer alone, Jennifer Lopez expertly teaches the basics of pole dancing, which immediately elevates this film to Oscar status.
