Jennifer Lopez, Cardi B, Constance Wu, Keke Palmer and Lili Reinhart are the stars of Hustlers.

Directed by Lorene Scafaria, Hustlers is a new drama about savvy former strip club employees who team up to turn the tables on their Wall Street clients…

It’s interesting that this movie is inspired by a viral New York Magazine article. An article I adimt haven’t read.

It’s really the great cast and their chemistry that has me most curious. That and what the women actually got away with, for a while.

Julia Stiles, Usher Raymond, Jon Glaser, Rhys Coiro, Lizzo, Mercedes Ruehl, Trace Lysette, Frank Whaley, Stormi Maya and Madeline Brewer also star .

Hustlers Release Dates: September 13th, 2019 (US)

CRAZY RICH ASIANS (2018): The Things I Liked…

Crazy Rich Asians, the story of New Yorker Rachel and her trip to Singapore with her boyfriend Nick to meet his family, and attend his best friend’s wedding is a much better film than I expected.

Starring Constance Wu, Henry Golding, Michelle Yeoh and Gemma Chan, Crazy Rich Asians truly exceeded my expectations. Particularly my assumption based on the trailer that it would be anything like the Fifty Shades Of Grey romance and films. I’m therefore happy confirm that the only key similarities between both movies start end with ‘rich guy falls in love with non-rich girl’. 

I really liked director Jon M. Chu’s beautiful execution of bestselling Author Kevin Kwan’s story. My favourite scenes include the very first scene at the hotel and the surprise Mahjong game towards the end. Then there’s of course the wedding that got Nick and Rachel to Singapore in the first place. A wedding that may just be my favourite movie wedding of all time, thanks to everything that happens in that scene including Kina Grannis’s version of ‘Can’t Help Falling In Love.

Seeing all the stunning locations, homes and expensive style were definitely a highlight too, as expected. However, the thing that really made watching Crazy Rich Asians a true pleasure for me is the the humour that came in the ‘crazy’ part of Crazy Rich Asians. 

If you haven’t already seen this beautiful movie, make time for all the reasons above and for the romance, of course. The romance!

CRAZY RICH ASIANS (2018): New Trailer Starring Constance Wu, Michelle Yeoh, Henry Golding, Ken Jeong…

Constance Wu, Michelle Yeoh, Ken Jeong and Henry Golding are the stars of Crazy Rich Asians, a Jon M. Chu directed comedy based on the novel of the same name by Adele Lim. 

The story follows New Yorker Rachel as she accompanies her longtime boyfriend Nick to his best friend’s wedding in Singapore. Visiting Asia for the first time and nervous about meeting her boyfriend’s family, Rachel is unprepared to learn that Nick has neglected to mention a few key details about his life…

In all honesty, I’m mostly interested in this one because I want a glimpse into the ‘Crazy Rich Asian’ lifestyle. I’m also pretty sure that I’ve never watched an English speaking  film with what looks like a completely Asian cast. Exciting times.

Crazy Rich Asians Release Dates: August 17th, 2018 (US & UK)…
