The first Hustlers trailer set expectations high for the end-of-summer scam movie, with its plethora of platform heels, gravity-defying pole moves, and more Jennifer Lopez one-liners than one could ever hope for.
Now, just over a week out from its release on September 13, there’s a brand-new Hustlers sneak peek. Also starring Constance Wu, Julia Stiles, Keke Palmer, Lili Reinhart, Lizzo, and Cardi B, the film is inspired by a true story by Jessica Pressler about a group of women who work at a strip club and begin fleecing its customers for a little extra cash.
In the new trailer Cardi B’s character, Diamond, emerges like a So You Think You Can Dance expert to teach Constance Wu’s character, Destiny, how to work the pole. “We’re going to help her learn how to do a real dance,” says Lopez’s character, Ramona. Cardi recently told Entertainment Tonight that she wasn’t able to give her all in the dancing sequences because of a recent surgery: “I was like, This is my moment to shine, and I can’t shine because I can’t climb!” Still, her real-life experience working in strip clubs probably came in pretty handy throughout the course of the film: “I was born to flex,” indeed.
Ramona serves up more wisdom here, including the evergreen “You want ’em drunk enough to get their credit card but sober enough to sign a check.” Neophyte scammer Destiny proves she’s learned more than that from her new crew; she screeches to EMTs about her apparently passed-out “husband” before venturing back into his car for the loot.
