#TRAILERCHEST: J-Lo, Cardi B, and Lizzo are former strippers out for revenge in Hustlers

Rory Cashin


The best part is that it is all based on a true story…

Welcome to #TrailerChest, where we’re taking a sneak peek at the brand new trailer for Hustlers.

Plot’s it all about? A group of former strip club employees decide to join forces and get back on the stage in order to entice a group of rich Wall Street bankers and then fleece them of their money.

And, yes, it is based on a true story, becoming a huge story for New York Magazine, and it is obviously an easy-fit to become a movie, too.

The all-star but surprisingly musician-heavy cast-list seem to be playing this along the lines Ocean’s 8 with more stripper poles, and to be fair, what movie couldn’t be improved by strippers poles?

Reservoir Dogs with stripper poles? Amazing.

The Dark Knight with stripper poles? We’re there!

Magic Mike with stripper poles? Oh, wait, that doesn’t really work…

Starring: Jennifer Lopez, Cardi B, Keke Palmer, Constance Wu, Lizzo, Julia Stiles, Usher, Frank Whaley

Directed by: Lorene Scafaria

Irish release date: Friday 13 September
