We’ve been fangirling over the mere concept of a CRAZY RICH ASIANS movie ever since the bestselling novel’s big-screen adaptation was first announced; our hype only intensified when the cast list was first announced a year ago , and we learned it would star the likes of #wcw Constance Wu and timeless icon Michelle Yeoh. So you can imagine how giddy we are now that the first teaser for the movie has finally dropped, and in barely 20 seconds it’s already shaping up to be a hella fun, hella glitzy ride.
The plot, based on Kevin Kwan’s 2013 book of the same name, follows Chinese-American professor Rachel (Constance Wu) as she struggles to navigate the insane wealth and notoriety of her boyfriend’s (Henry Golding) family when accompanying him home to Singapore for his best friend’s wedding (to a supermodel). Culture shock and comedy ensue.
There’s couture. There’s reality TV references. There’s abs (and pecs). Check it out:
It’s been a CRAaazy long wait, but it’s almost here! Warner Bros. Pictures and Jon M. Chu are proud to present the official trailer for #CrazyRichAsians, dropping on MONDAY!
