Eric Charbonneau/STX FilmsJennifer Lopez, Cardi B and Keke Palmer are dancing all the way to the bank in the second trailer for Hustlers, released Tuesday.
The clip kicks off with J. Lo and Cardi’s characters teaching a new stripper, played by Constance Wu, how to give a lap dance. “I’m good at that,” Cardi says with a smile.
Based on New York magazine’s 2015 article “The Hustlers at Scores,” the film follows a group of Manhattan exotic dancers who entice rich Wall Street executives to spend thousands of dollars every night at strip clubs. Lopez portrays Ramona, the ringleader, who instructs Cardi’s character, Diamond, and Mercedes, played by Palmer, how to get paid.
In the trailer, Ramona comments that the girls need to get Wall Street guys “drunk enough to get their credit card, but sober enough to sign the check,” as we hear Cardi’s “Money” playing in the background.
We see the ladies working the pole, grabbing the cash as their customers make it rain on stage, and enjoying the fruits of their labor on lavish shopping sprees. But they soon suffer the consequences of fleecing their patrons when one man is rushed to a hospital, and Ramona is interrogated by police,
Lizzo is also one of the stars of Hustlers, which opens September 13.
