Finally! The very first trailer for Jennifer Lopez’s Hustlers, featuring Cardi B, Constance Wu, Keke Palmer, Julia Stiles, Lili Reinhart, and Lizzo is officially here. The preview was unveiled and presented by Lopez herself during Tuesday night’s (July 16) episode of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
In the preview of the project, opening in theaters September 13, the “Medicine” musician leads a league of former strippers to scam and con their Wall Street clients. The concept of the movie itself originates from “The Hustlers at Score,” the 2015 New York Magazine article written by Jessica Pressler. Lorene Scafaria helms the scandalous drama, which sees first-time feature film roles for the likes of “Bodak Yellow” rapper Cardi and “Juice” singer Lizzo.
In describing the concept of the film, Scafaria explained: "The film is an empathetic look at women and men, our gender roles, what we’re valued for, what we’ve been told is our value in every movie, TV show, every corner of culture. Men have been told they're worth the size of their bank accounts. Women have been told they’re worth the symmetry of their faces, their bodies, their beauty, and that’s what this film is based on. The rules of the club are the rules of the world."
