Undoubtedly, the Marvel Cinematic Universe is the highest-earning production house in the industry. The superhero films and television series are an all-time favorite, for the audience, as well as at the box office.
The most excellent highlight of this season is definitely, how Avengers: Endgame, dethroned Avatar to become the highest grossed movie across the globe!
Upcoming movie Hustlers’ star Jennifer Lopez, feels that it is difficult to make a movie that performs well if it is not associated with Marvel.
During the promotion of Hustlers this weekend at the Toronto International Film Festival, Lopez says it is tough on filmmakers to make people-centric movies, that aren’t based on any books such as the Harry Potter series, or the Marvel comics.
The Shades of Blue star has been quoted saying, “First of all, it’s hard to make a movie, period. It has to be Marvel comic or some crazy franchise thing, but smaller movies about humanity and people and life and struggles, you don’t get that as much unless you do that for nothing and there’s no budget.”
Furthermore, she continued, “On top of the movies themselves, then when you have women characters at the front of it, it’s a whole another battle. It’s a whole new layer, and it’s hard to get them made.”
Hustlers are inspired from the New York Magazine article written by Jessica Pressler on strip club employees, coming together and trying ear their livelihoods by hook or by crook.
‘Hustlers’ is star-packed, with Jennifer Lopez starring as a veteran stripper, who along with Constance Wu playing the character of Destiny, make out a scheme to rob wealthy men.
Other cast members include Cardi B, Keke Palmer, Julia Stiles, Lili Reinhart, and Lizzo.
The movie is scheduled to hit the theatres on Friday, September 13, 2019.
