‘Hustlers’ With Jennifer Lopez To Surge At Box Office With $28M Opening – Deadline
By Anthony D'Alessandro. To give you can idea of how some exhibitors got into the spirit of Hustlers, some hosted themed screenings similar to what was done with Fifty Shades of Grey. Not to rain on their parade, but that was to be expected with this strong genre franchise, not to mention the fact that Chapter Two would have a two-weekend grip on the top spot. But a stripper movie starring a movie star who has seen her fair share of peaks and valleys, rising to a record opening? It helps when the pic is built for one particular strong demo: women and multi-cultural audiences. PostTrak exits remain at 3. Add in Lopez dazzling on the pole, and audiences line up.
