The Rebel Wilson-Anne Hathaway comedy The Hustle will arrive on digital Aug. 6 and Blu-ray, DVD and on demand Aug. 20 from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment.
The film stars Academy Award winner Hathaway (Ocean’s 8, The Devil Wears Prada) and Wilson (Isn’t It Romantic, Pitch Perfect) as two scam artists from different worlds who join forces to take down the dirty rotten men who have wronged them. Josephine Chesterfield (Hathaway) is a glamorous, seductive Brit who defrauds gullible wealthy men. Penny (Wilson) amasses wads of cash by ripping off her marks in neighborhood bars. Despite their different methods, both are masters of the art.
The film earned $35.1 million at the box office.
Bonus features on Blu-ray and DVD include:
- “Hitting the Mark,” revealing the plans behind the film, from Hathaway’s initial discussions with Jac Schaeffer and Wilson about updating the story for a modern era to director Chris Addison’s collaboration with the cast to craft the comedy on set;
- “Comedy Class,” exploring the different comedic styles of the actors;
- “Con Artists,” about the artists behind the camera, costume designer Emmer Fryer and production designer Alice Normington;
- and feature commentary from Addison.
