The First Trailer For ‘Crazy Rich Asians’ Is Absurdly Lavish
Sign me up, this looks amazing.
The first full trailer for upcoming rom-com Crazy Rich Asians has been released, and damn if it doesn’t look like it lives up to its title.
Adapted from Kevin Kwan’s novel of the same name, the movie follows Rachel (played by Fresh Off the Boat star Constance Wu), a Chinese-American woman who accompanies her boyfriend (Henry Golding) to Singapore to meet his insanely wealthy family. We’re talking private island levels of wealth here.
The film is directed by Asian-American filmmaker Jon M. Chu and features an all-Asian cast, including Michelle Yeoh, Ken Jeong, Awkwafina and Ronny Chieng (although apparently one producer wanted to make the protagonist a white girl. Hollywood, you fucking suck).
Crazy Rich Asians hits cinemas in the US on August 17.
