"You can choose love, but you can’t choose family."
The trailer for Crazy Rich Asians has finally been released.
The highly anticipated all-Asian cast film Crazy Rich Asians is just months away from release and we are finally able to get a sneak peak of the film.
Based on Kevin Kwan’s New York Times best-selling novel of the same name and will feature an all-Asian cast. Directed by Jon M Chu, the film centres on the lives of wealthy Chinese families living in Singapore.
The story follows Rachel Chu (Wu), an American-born Chinese economics professor who travels to Singapore for her boyfriend’s best friend’s wedding. It quickly becomes apparent that her boyfriend Nick and his family are incredibly wealthy.
Rachel soon realises that Nick may just be the most desirable bachelor in Asia and that every other single woman in his social class is jealous of her and wants to bring her down.
Crazy Rich Asians also stars Ken Jeong, Jimmy O Yang, Gemma Chan, Michelle Yeoh, Constance Wu, Sonoya Mizuno, Chris Pang, Ronny Chieng and Awkwafina.
In related news, Awkwafina recently said that the film will “set some sort of precedent”.
Crazy Rich Asians will be released on 17 August 2018.
