Guys, it feels like we’ve been waiting forever to see a trailer from Jennifer Lopez’s buzzy new movie Hustlers, and while it's not here just yet, we did get served a few bread crumbs to hold us over.
J.Lo just posted a sneak peek of her character Ramona on Instagram, while also teasing the trailer’s release date. Yup, we’ll finally have a trailer in one week.
“7 days til hustlersmovie trailer drops July 17th!! #HustlersMovie#Ramona,” she captioned the short clip.
In the video we see Ramona walking into what appears to be a club with her girl gang behind her (we see you, Keke Palmer). Then there’s someone on a pole followed by Lopez herself on the ground with money. OK, so it’s not much, but it's giving us atmosphere; it's giving us costume design; it's giving us #mood.
This isn’t the first time we’ve seen Lopez’s character. Back in March, the 49-year-old singer posted another photo to her social media featuring her character in a pink string bikini, sunglasses and hoop earrings.
The film, based on a 2015 article written by Jessica Pressler for New York magazine entitled “The Hustlers at Scores,” isabout two revenge-seeking former strippers who band together and steal from “rich and pathetic men” for the benefit of themselves.
The star-studded cast also includes Constance Wu (Crazy Rich Asians), Lili Reinhart (Riverdale), Julia Stiles (Riviera), Mercedes Ruehl (The Fisher King) and Cardi B, all of whom will play exotic dancers.
You go, J.Lo.
