Crazy Rich Asians is the Rom-Com We’ve Been Waiting For
The Ellen Show debuted an exclusive trailer for Crazy Rich Asians last week, and we’re pretty excited. This is a rom-com we’ve been waiting for, starring an amazing cast of all-star Asian actors and exploring love, family, and one incredibly terrifying mother-in-law.
Crazy Rich Asians is based on the best-selling book by Kevin Kwan and follows the same story: a middle-class Chinese-American, Rachel, falls in love with the well-heeled (and handsome) son of a very rich family from Singapore, Nick. When she accompanies her boyfriend to Singapore for his best friend’s wedding, she meets his domineering mother-in-law and discovers dark family secrets and some super crazy, super rich, Asians! The movie explores the new face of Asia and features Asian actors in leading roles, a rarity in the United States.
We can’t wait until Crazy Rich Asians lands in theaters this August, starring Constance Wu, Henry Golding, and Michelle Yeoh.
