J-Lo and her gang of strippers get rich in new trailer for Hustlers

The upcoming film also stars Cardi B, Lizzo, and Crazy Rich Asians’ Constance Wu

After dropping some pink feather bower and diamond-clad teasers last week, the first full trailer for stripper film Hustlers, starring Jennifer Lopez, Cardi B, Lizzo, and Constance Wu (Crazy Rich Asians), has finally been released. 

The two-minute clip opens with J-Lo elegently twirling around a pole, as she teaches newbie Destiny (played by Wu) the tricks of the trade. The clip then teases the true story of a group of strippers – Lopez and Wu are joined by fellow stars Julia Stiles, Keke Palmer, and Lili Reinhart – who rip off wealthy Wall Street clients. Frustrated by having no money despite working constantly (mood), J-Lo and crew decide to start swindling rich men who come to the strip club.

In a voiceover, we hear Lopez convincing Wu of her plan: “These Wall Street guys, you see what they did to this country – they stole from everybody. Hard working people lost everything, and not one of these douchebags went to jail. The game is rigged and it does not reward people who play by the rules.”

Also joining the all-star cast are Lizzo and Cardi B, making their feature film debuts. The part is a natural fit for the rapper who worked as a stripper before her music career went astronomical – her track “Money” provides the soundtrack for the trailer. 

As well as having a killer line up, the film raises issues surrounding sex work in the US; with feminists joining the cause to secure better rights for workers, the story has been dubbed the tale of a ‘modern-day Robin Hood’.

But you’ll still have to wait and see, as the film isn’t set to hit cinemas until September 13.
