Hustlers Debut Trailer

Jennifer Lopez Takes the Lead in First “Hustlers” Trailer

Jennifer Lopez is a solidified triple threat.  Though she is considered the leader in the forthcoming Lorene Scafaria directed Hustlers, she isn’t the only star sizzling up the screen.

STX Films has just released the first trailer for the highly anticipated exotic thriller, and boy does it deliver the goods.

The trailer begins with Lopez teaching stripper student Constance Wu, telling her that pole dancing revolves around a few foot positions.  Intense lighting and editing add effect to the sequence, quickly setting the mood for the female-driven high-stakes thriller that rivals the male-dominated Magic Mike.

The film pits a group of struggling strippers against their Wall Street clients.  The ladies look to justify their actions by the men’s lack of empathy and discipline for their crooked ways that resulted in bankrupting many of the hard-working middle-class.

“They stole from everybody.  Hard-working people lost everything, and not one of these douchebags go to jail,” Lopez says.  “The game is rigged, and it does not award people who play by the rules.”

Joining Lopez and Wu is an all-star lineup including Julia Stiles, Lili Reinhart, Keke Palmer, Lizzo, and Cardi B.  The “Bodak Yellow” rapper worked as a stripper before her music career took off.  Her track “Money” serves as the backdrop here.

Inspired by Jessica Pressler’s New York Magazine article “The Hustlers at Scores,” Hustlers dances its way into theaters September 13.


About Stephen Davis

Stephen Davis
I owe this hobby/career to the one and only Stephanie Peterman who, while interning at Fox, told me that I had too many opinions and irrelevant information to keep it all bottled up inside. I survived my first rated R film, Alive, at the ripe age of 8, it took me months to grasp the fact that Julia Roberts actually died at the end of Steel Magnolias, and I might be the only person alive who actually enjoyed Sorority Row…for its comedic value of course. While my friends can drink you under the table, I can outwatch you when it comes iconic, yet horrid 80s films like Adventures in Babysitting and Troop Beverly Hills. I have no shame when it comes to what I like, and if you have a problem with that, then we’ll settle it on the racquetball court. I see too many movies to actually win any film trivia contest, so don’t waste your first pick on me. My friends rent movies from my bookcase shelves, and one day I do plan to start charging. I long to live in LA, where my movie obsession will actually help me fit in, but for now I am content with my home in Austin. I prefer indies to blockbusters, Longhorns to Sooners and Halloween to Friday the 13th. I miss the classics, as well as John Ritter, and I hope to one day sit down and interview the amazing Kate Winslet.
