In the first look at what appears to be the greatest movie of 2019, or possibly the best movie of all time, Jennifer Lopez, Constance Wu, Cardi B and Lizzo play members of a squad of New York strippers shaking down Wall Street in the first trailer for Hustlers.
Inspired by true events, and adapted from Jessica Pressler’s viral New York Magazine story The Hustlers at Scores, the film tells the story of a group of New York strippers who drugged and robbed a number of Wall Street bankers in the months after the 2008 stock market crash.
Keke Palmer, Lili Reinhart, Trace Lysette and Madeline Brewer are among the members of Lopez’s crew, while Julia Stiles portrays the journalist chasing the story.
Written and directed by Lorene Scafaria, in what is her follow-up to the sweet indie dramedy The Meddler, the film looks set to be a glitzy, grungy cross between The Wolf of Wall Street and Ocean’s Eleven.
Hustlers is due to be released in UK cinemas 13 September 2019.
