You might be in need a reason to get excited summer is nearing its end. I know I do. Fortunately, the first trailer dropped for Hustlers, reminding us that on September 13, we can see Jennifer Lopez, Constance Wu, Julia Stiles, Keke Palmer, Lili Reinhart and Cardi B scheme Wall Street bros out of their money. That's a pretty good consolation prize for heading into a colder season.
While the movie promises to be everything we didn't know we needed, Cardi B fans have some questions after the first trailer debuted this morning. Namely, where the heck is she?
The trailer opens at a strip club and moves on to show us the incredible cast drugging their male clients and using their credit cards. Lopez soothes our guilty consciences by reminding us, "The game is rigged, and it does not reward people who play by the rules."
While Cardi B's song "Money" plays throughout the entire trailer, she is only in one shot, which has led to questions. Fans flocked to Twitter to complain. According to Us Weekly, people tweeted out messages today such as, "thought this was [a] Cardi B movie" and "Kinda disappointed in the trailer. Where is Cardi B (I understand it’s a supporting roll [sic]), and why is her name LAST like come on now #bardigang."
Apparently, there is way more of Cardi B to come. The film's Twitter page was quick to weigh in.
So we all might not have anything to worry about. As Us Weekly reports, Cardi B's absence from the trailer is likely just because her crazy schedule only allowed her one day of shooting time so far. But as Cosmopolitan points out, one day of shooting might prove she doesn't have a lot of screentime.
I guess we'll have to wait for more footage from Hustlers to know for sure.
