Hustlers | Sept 13th, 2019 | STX | Jennifer Lopez, Constance Wu | 25th Most Profitable Movie of 2019

Recommended Posts

Finally saw this. It was released here just this weekend and I just found out today (out of theaters tomorrow!!!!). Great movie and JLo was truly wonderful.  

 

Really happy about the award buzz. I know she'll be delighted with a nomination but it reminds me of Emma Stone in La La Land where it wasn't a traditional showy performance but the charisma carried the whole movie so I hope she at least has a shot. (Of course she isn't as "respected" as an actress as Emma but I'm under the impression she's well liked and respected for her hard work, and it's supporting instead of lead so who knows)

On the home entertainment front, “Hustlers” currently has more pre-orders on FandangoNOW than any other movie releasing this week on digital, including “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood,” “Downton Abbey” and “Ready or Not.”

This was a very good win for STX

A studio that (outside some of the small horror title and animation) slate is 100% build into matching star power to the project size is still alive, despite the concept repeatedly supposedly death.

Pete Hammond’s Notes On The Season: Oscar Screener Viewing Crunch; ‘1917’ Hits The Front Lines Of The Race; JLo And Female-Driven Films Draw The Voters

 

(...)

 

After that it was upstairs to the second reception of the evening with Elbaum, Hustlers director and writer Lorene Scafaria, and star Jennifer Lopez, the latter drawing a constant line of well-wishers to talk about the movie that is consistently looking like it could deliver her first Oscar nomination ever in a role that has produced the best reviews of her film career to date, or at least since Steven Soderbergh’s Out Of Sight at the beginning of her movie stardom. I think it is looking certain she will be a major contender for the Golden Globe (she hasn’t been nominated there since Selena in 1996) and Critics Choice Supporting Actress honors, particularly if you look at the turnout of HFPA members just to this event on Monday. She already has been nominated for two Gothams, a Best Supporting Female nom at the Independent Spirits, and this week was named recipient of the Spotlight Actress honor at the Palm Springs International Film Festival to be presented on January 2nd at their Gala launching the fest which runs thru January 13.

 

She told me the attention she keeps getting for this film has been astounding to her, and she is clearly thrilled. Lopez, Scafaria and Elbaum each told me Hustlers was rejected by every studio and distributor it was presented to until STX came along to give a green light. Apparently the idea, however based on a true story that it is, of a bunch of women drugging their male clients and maxxing out their credit cards, was too much for this still male-dominated industry. This group is having the last laugh as Hustlers has turned into a huge hit. Although there are no plans for a sequel, Scafaria told me she could see it possibly adapted as a Broadway musical some day. You heard it here first, folks.

remember when i used to hate on jlo??? well this movie was fantastic and she was amazing in it. great acting aside, how can someone look/dance like that at 50? she's such an inspiration

I remember. I'm glad you came to your senses. JLo is amazing and she deserves the Oscar.

I think that Jennifer will get a Oscar nomination and a Golden Globe win.

 

If Gwyneth Paltrow won the Oscar for Shakespeare In love, and Sharon Stone was nominated for one for Casino i think Jennifer Lopez can do it.

 

And for the Oscars and the golden globes could be a win when they nominated her because unlike other nominates in past years at least Hustlers is a Box Office hit which could translate in better numbers for the award shows.

 

Jennnifer Lopez, te amo mami!!!
