Crazy Rich Asians — Trailer


added: Mon, Apr 23rd '18

"Fresh Off the Boat" star Constance Wu is shocked to discover her Singapore-born boyfriend comes from a super wealthy family in the first official trailer for the upcoming dating comedy "Crazy Rich Asians."

Based on the international best-seller by Singaporean novelist Kevin Kwan, the film, featuring an all-Asian cast (which is a rare feat for a Hollywood movie), follows an American-Chinese professor named Rachel Chu (played by Wu), as she travels with her boyfriend, Nick (up-and-comer Henry Golding), to his home country of Singapore to attend his best friend's wedding, only to be utterly awestruck to find out that Nick is not only a well-known Singaporean socialite, but who is also considered to be one of the most sought-after and richest bachelors in the entire region.

Malaysian-born Hong Kong actress Michelle Yeoh (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, Star Trek: Discovery) plays Nick's hard-to-pleased, antagonistic mother while the supporting cast includes Ocean's 8's Awkwafina, The Hangover's Ken Jeong, Silicon Valley's Jimmy O. Yang, Superstore's Nico Santos and Fantastic Beasts's Gemma Chan.

Directed by Jon M. Chu (Now You See Me 2, G.I. Joe: Retaliation), "Crazy Rich Asians" is due to open theatrically this summer, on August 17th.

CRAZY RICH ASIANS follows native New Yorker Rachel Chu (Constance Wu) as she accompanies her longtime boyfriend, Nick Young (Henry Golding), to his best friend’s wedding in Singapore. Excited about visiting Asia for the first time but nervous about meeting Nick’s family, Rachel is unprepared to learn that Nick has neglected to mention a few key details about his life. It turns out that he is not only the scion of one of the country’s wealthiest families but also one of its most sought-after bachelors. Being on Nick’s arm puts a target on Rachel’s back, with jealous socialites and, worse, Nick’s own disapproving mother (Michelle Yeoh) taking aim. And it soon becomes clear that while money can’t buy love, it can definitely complicate things.
