J.Lo and Cardi B’s Hustlers trailer just dropped, and we cannot WAIT to see this movie
Update, July 17th, 9:30 a.m. EDT: The first trailer for the Hustlers movie just dropped. This story has been updated to reflect that information.
It’s here, it’s here! The trailer for the star-studded Hustlers movie just dropped, and it has it all: Jennifer Lopez teaching Constance Wu how to spin on a pole, Cardi B’s song “Money” in the background, and a whole lot of cash and bottles popping.
The STXfilms movie is based on a true story and centers on a group of former strip club employees who turn the tables on their wealthy Wall Street clients. The movie stars Wu and Lopez with an ensemble that’s positively stacked. Both Lizzo and Cardi B are slated to make their feature film debuts in the movie, and Lili Reinhart, Scream Queens’ Keke Palmer, and 10 Things I Hate About You alum Julia Stiles round out the cast. Lorene Scafaria, writer and director of the film, said of the eclectic mix:
“I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to work with this dynamic group of women. We’re grateful to have assembled such a powerhouse cast.
You must—we repeat: must—check out the trailer below.
Needless to say, Twitter is going bananas.
There’s already behind-the-scenes footage on Instagram from the set (scroll to the right to see all the videos and pictures in the post below).
We told you FOMO was imminent.
Hustlers is inspired by “The Hustlers at Score,” a 2015 piece from The Cut written by Jessica Pressler that tells a “modern Robin Hood story” of strippers who banded against their high-profile clients. Lopez, who collaborated with Cardi for the song “Dinero” alongside DJ Khaled, took to Instagram on March 19th to confirm the casting news, writing, “It’s official! Constance Wu and Cardi B are joining me in @HustlersMovie – coming soon to theaters!”
