Inspired by the provocative true story about a crew of former strip club employees who turn the tables on their greedy Wall Street clients, HUSTLERS arrives on Digital November 26, 2019 and on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray TM, DVD and On Demand December 10, 2019 from STXfilms and Universal Pictures Home Entertainment. Dazzling critics and audiences alike, the “fiercely funny” (Peter Travers, Rolling Stone) drama follows a band of business-savvy strippers as they unite to seek revenge in what critics are hailing as “one of the year’s best films” (Joey Nolfi, Entertainment Weekly). Inspired by journalist Jessica Pressler’s 2015 viral New York Magazine article “The Hustlers at Scores,” HUSTLERS is filled with wildly entertaining and empowering moments from beginning to end and takes audiences behind the scenes of this inspiring real life con.
“A true movie for our era” (Alison Cohen Rosa, Vanity Fair), the bold and gritty narrative is led by Constance Wu (Crazy Rich Asians) and Jennifer Lopez (The Boy Next Door) and features an all-star supporting cast including Julia Stiles (Jason Bourne), Keke Palmer (“Berlin Station”), Lili Reinhart (“Riverdale”), Grammy Award® winner Cardi B, Billboard chart-topper Lizzo, Mette Towley (Cats), Madeline Brewer (“The Handmaid’s Tale), Trace Lysette (“Transparent”), Mercedes Ruehl (“Power”) and Wai Ching Ho (“Fresh Off the Boat”). HUSTLERS is and written and directed by Lorene Scafaria (Seeking a Friend for the End of the World, Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist), and produced by Jessica Elbaum (Booksmart) , Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas (Second Act) , Lopez (Second Act), Benny Medina (The Boy Next Door), Will Ferrell (Vice) and Adam McKay (Vice).
HUSTLERS follows Destiny (Wu) a young stripper struggling to make ends meet. That is, until she meets Ramona (Lopez), the club’s savvy top earner, who shows her the way toward making big bucks. But when the 2008 economic collapse hits their Wall Street clientele hard, Destiny and Ramona concoct a plan with their fellow strippers to turn the tables on these greedy power players. It’s a wild, modern-day Robin Hood tale that critics are hailing as “enormously entertaining” (Ann Hornaday, The Washington Post).
