The first full-length trailer of Jon M. Chu’s (Now You See Me 2) much-awaited film Crazy Rich Asians is finally here and it looks to be the romantic comedy we Asians have been waiting for. The movie stars some big-name talents such as Constance Wu from Fresh of the Boat, Awkwafina (Ocean’s 8) and the legendary Michelle Yeoh.
This movie is making waves not just in the United States but all over Asia as well, as it consists entirely of Asian and Asian American talents.
Here’s the official synopsis of Crazy Rich Asians:
The story follows native New Yorker Rachel Chu (Wu) as she accompanies her longtime boyfriend, Nick Young (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 (Yeoh) taking aim. And it soon becomes clear that while money can’t buy love, it can definitely complicate things.
