'Crazy Rich Asians' Drops Dazzling First Trailer

Crazy Rich Asians

Crazy Rich Asians

Like Crazy Rich Asians, this August's comedy that assembles a dream team of Asian actors for what looks like a lavish, indulgent, and amusing summer romp.

The film stars Constance Wu (Fresh Off the Boat) as Rachel Chu, an American-born Chinese professor, who travels to Singapore to meet her boyfriend, Nick's, family and friends at his best friend's wedding.

"You really should have told me you're like the Prince William of Asia", Rachel says, to which Nick jokes, "That's ridiculous". The trailer opens on Nick extending the invitation, explaining that now is the ideal time for Rachel to meet his family.

"Daaamn, Rachel, he's like the Asian Bachelor!". "I'm much more of a Harry".

Let us know your thoughts on the Crazy Rich Asians trailer below! Pitted against her potential future mother-in-law, as well as an upper-crust society that views her as an unworthy partner for Nick, Rachel finds herself struggling to prove that she belongs - a premise that, so far, has social media fans counting down the days until the film's late-summer premiere.

"You can choose love, but you can't choose family".

Glitz, glamour, high stakes and gorgeous people so wealthy they're described as "crazy rich" - the first trailer for the big-screen adaptation Crazy Rich Asians is as opulent and spunky as you'd expect from a movie based on Kevin Kwan's larger-than-life bestseller.

The film, which is set to hit theaters on August 17, also stars Gemma Chan, Ken Jeong, and Awkwafina.

The film co-stars Gemma Chan, Lisa Lu, Awkwafina, Jimmy O. Yang, Chris Pang, Sonoya Mizuno, Jing Lusi, Ronny Chieng, Pierre Png, Fiona Xie, Kheng Hua Tan Harry Shum Jr. and Ken Jeong (the Hangover Trilogy).
