Hustlers delivers Stx’s biggest ever box office opening weekend

Coming off the back of strong reviews out of the Toronto International Film Festival and potential awards talk for Jennifer Lopez, the stripper crime dramedy Hustlers has given Stx Entertainment its best ever opening weekend at the North American box office with $33.2 million across the Friday to Sunday period.

Although it finished up in second place behind It Chapter Two ($40.7 million), Hustlers comfortably toppled Bad Moms ($23.6 million) for Stx’s biggest opening, while it also delivered a weekend best for Jennifer Lopez in live-action surpassing the $23.1 million haul of Monster-in-Law back in 2005.

There is a chance that you probably think Hustlers is a dumb broad comedy about strippers getting into illegal hijinks, and you would only be half right with that assumption. Luckily, many viewers that do take a chance on this one will come to the realization that it’s regressive and boneheaded logic on their part to instinctively mentally label something involving strippers conning rich people as disposable but potentially entertaining fast-food cinema. Hustlers is intelligent and
