Led by Fresh Off the Boat star Constance Wu and Henry Golding, the Crazy Rich Asians cast is filled with up-and-coming worldwide performers of Asian heritage, including Gemma Chan, Awkwafina and Harry Shum Jr.
While that's great, I think it says something if we can only picture Asians in something from another time. Rachel's pal Peik Lin, played by Awkwafina, exclaims in the trailer.
"You really should have told me you're like the Prince William of Asia", Rachel cracks at one point, to which Nick, played by newcomer Henry Golding jokes, "That's ridiculous".
The film, directed by John M Chu, follows the couple as they travel to Singapore to meet his family, who she discovers are "crazy rich".
Without coach Gregg Popovich, Spurs look to avoid getting swept by Warriors
The San Antonio Spurs will enter Sunday's Game 4 against the Golden State Warriors in a must-win situation. The Warriors' first-round playoff series against the Spurs is over, but the Warriors still need to end it.
While navigating the fabulously opulent world of Asian high society, filled with designer fashion, luxury cars and jets and over-the-top bling, Rachel also has to fend off a bevy of socialites angling to replace her as Nick's girlfriend and win over his heartily disapproving mother. Right in the person of Nick Young (Henry Golding). "If Nick chose me, he would lose his family", Rachel tells Eleanor. "And if Nick chose his family, he might spend the rest of his life resenting you".
The first trailer for the much-anticipated Crazy Rich Asians has arrived!
Here's the official synopsis for the film: "Rachel Chu is happy to accompany her longtime boyfriend, Nick, to his best friend's wedding in Singapore".
"I know this much - you will never be enough", she later jabs. Established stars such as Michelle Yeoh and Ken Jeong round out the actors.
