I can't believe I'm saying this, given that Marvel's Avengers: Endgame is mere days away from its debut, but honestly? I'm more excited to see Hustlers than any other movie coming out this year.
By now you know the premise of the movie. Based on a true story published in a 2015 New York magazine feature, Hustlers follows a group of exotic dancers in New York City who use their wiles to con huge amounts of money from their wealthy, male clients who work in finance on Wall Street. It will star Jennifer Lopez, Constance Wu, Julia Stiles, Keke Palmer, Lili Reinhart, and Cardi B, among others. Basically, it's going to be a total baddie-fest.
The movie only just started filming in New York City, and already it's receiving praise on all ends. Castmate Stiles recently called Lopez's performance in the movie "phenomenal," and behind-the-scenes shots are causing a frenzy among social media users who just can't wait to see all these women in action on film.
All of this extended hype begs one question: When the heck does Hustlers hit theaters? Apparently, that date was just decided, and Lopez herself took to social media to announce it to the world. Luckily for all of us, we'll get to see the movie before the year is up. Peep the official release date from J.Lo's Instagram in the video below. We're reeling with excitement!
