I really want to see Brando's version. as well as Niven's version to see how they compare. I agree Dirty Rotten Scoundrels (1988) is great and is going to be hard to beat. Interestingly, both are equally rated at 6.8 on IMDb.

I saw the trailer for Hustle at Endgame... funny idea (the gender swap concept), but I have a feeling they will trade wit for vulgarity.

I'm not a Rebel Wilson fan, but I think Anne Hathaway is better at serious roles.  I just don't think she's funny.  I remember she was on an SNL skit one time, and she was just trying way too hard and hamming it up.  On the other hand, she was amazing in Les Miserables.

The Hustle  has a 5.2 IMDb rating, so it looks like most fans are embracing the latest edition after seeing it. Yet, the curiosity factor or marketing campaign seems to be driving people into theaters, while not a hit, The Hustle (2019) - Box Office Mojo has a chance to out gross Dirty Rotten Scoundrels (1988) - Box Office Mojo.
