“When I was a kid I always wanted to work with animals” Jennifer Lopez grins in the first trailer for Hustlers. “I was close.”
The animals in this case are men from Wall Street, who come to J.Lo’s strip club to drop a serious dime. Their behavior goes unchecked until the “Jenny From The Block” singer decides it’s time to get even.
“You see what they did to this country? They stole from everybody” she exclaims. “The game is rigged, and it does not reward people who play by the rules.”
Lopez hatches a plan for vigilante justice, assembling a group of like-minded dancers ready to exact their revenge. Her crew of entertainers includes Crazy Rich Asians star Constance Wu, “Juice” star Lizzo, and strip club success story Cardi B, all ready for some Scores-sized Robin Hood revenge.
“It’s like robbing a bank except we got the keys” she continues.
As Cardi’s “Money” blares in the back, you see the women roll out their plan and turn the tables in Hustlers, until “things get out of control.”
Inspired by a true story, Hustlers also stars Julia Stiles, Keke Palmer, and Lili Reinhart. The film hits theaters on September 13th.
