I’m not one to judge a film by its trailer, but something tells me Hustlers is already the movie of the year?

The trailer opens with Jenner Lopez walking Constance Wu through a few pole moves, cut with the unglamorous reality of Wu’s character giving the strip club owner a 40-percent cut of her earnings. To compensate for their lack of hard cash, the women seek revenge from the corrupt men of the Financial District who make up their clientele. J. Lo, Wu, Lili Reinhart, Keke Palmer, Cardi B, and Betty Cooper star as the strippers who rob Wall Street men, moonlighting as hot Robin Hoods.

Hustlers hits theaters September 13. Until then, you can read the New York article the movie is based on.

Yall, I obviously love this cast and I am SO excited about this movie and I will watch it.

But stop calling these bitches Robin Hoods. The story this is based on is horrific - they drugged, sexually assaulted, and robbed men for money that they kept for themselves, not gave to the poor.

I don’t care that they were rich men in a particular career; we fight every day as feminists to get rid of the idea of the “perfect victim”. 

I will watch and probably love these anti-hero characters and think we need more complex and nuanced female characters and looks at good/evil in general and I hope this movie gives us that. But this isn’t a freaking Robin Hood feminist hero movie.
