Watch Jennifer Lopez and Constance Wu in a clip from 'Hustlers'
STX Entertainment has just released a first clip from their upcoming Hustlers, featuring stars Jennifer Lopez and Constance Wu. Check it out in the player below and, if you missed the trailer, check it out at the bottom of this page.
At the start of 2007, Destiny (Wu) is a young woman struggling to make ends meet, to provide for herself and her grandma. But it’s not easy: the managers, DJs, and bartenders expect a cut– one way or another – leaving Destiny with a meager payday after a long night of stripping.
Her life is forever changed when she meets Ramona (Lopez), the club’s top money earner, who’s always in control, has the clientele figured out, and really knows her way around a pole. The two women bond immediately, and Ramona gives Destiny a crash course in the various poses and pole moves like the carousel, fireman, front hook, ankle-hook, and stag. Another dancer, the irrepressible Diamond (Cardi B) provides a bawdy and revelatory class in the art of the lap dance.
But Destiny’s most important lesson is that when you’re part of a broken system, you must hustle or be hustled.
To that end, Ramona outlines for her the different tiers of the Wall Street clientele who frequent the club. The two women find themselves succeeding beyond their wildest dreams, making more money than they can spend – until the September 2008 economic collapse. Wall Street stole from everyone and never suffered any consequences. Now, Ramona, Destiny, and two dancers who’ve joined their little family – the unstoppable Mercedes (Keke Palmer) and the young and innocent Annabelle (Lili Reinhart) – look to turn the tables.
Hustlers hits the big screen September 13.
