Crazy Rich Asians, the movie based on the worldwide bestseller from Kevin Kwan, premiered its first trailer today. Showcasing an impressive cast, the romantic comedy follows Rachel Chu (Constance Wu) as she meets her boyfriend Nick’s family in Singapore for the first time. Unbeknownst to her, Nick’s family is rich, crazy rich, and she’s thrust into a world that reaches new heights of opulence. However, that also comes with its own complications, including facing Nick’s disapproving mother (Michelle Yeoh) and an army of jealous socialites.
Filmed on location in Singapore and Malaysia, director Jon M. Chu infuses comedy, charm, and well, wealth in this first look at the movie. Having read the book, which is packed with rich character detail, I’m excited to see this movie finally hit the big screen!
Crazy Rich Asians arrives in theaters on August 17, 2018.
