Strippers Scamming Rich White Men? Yes, Please. Watch The New Hustlers Trailer
I’ve been anticipating the release of the film featuring a diverse, female-led cast, Hustlers since it was first announced. After all, the idea of the underdog, working women of color, scamming rich, White men sounds like a great time.
And while there’s still over a months before Hustlers hits theaters, the release of the full length trailer today puts us all one step closer.
It begins with Jennifer Lopez, the clear leader of the group, instructing the novice Constance Wu about how to hook herself onto the pole. But what starts off as a tutorial in one skillset, quickly turns into an education in another. While strippers make good money , it requires a lot of work and the clubs ultimately make more.
It’s unfair. So the women in the film come up with a plan to level the playing field by seducing then drugging rich, Wall Street-working White men and then stealing their money. No sex necessary.
What’s even better is that it’s based on a true story, as detailed in an article in New York Magazine and The Cut by Jessica Pressler. In addition to Lopez and Wu, the film also stars Cardi B, Lili Reinhart, Keke Palmer, Lizzo and Julia Stiles. Mercedes Ruehl, Mette Towley and Trace Lysette co-star.
The film is produced by Elaine Goldsmith Thomas, Jessica Elbaum, Jennifer Lopez, Benny Medina, Will Ferrell, Adam McKay.
