Jon M. Chu (Now You See Me 2) directs the luxurious romantic comedy based on the acclaimed worldwide bestseller by Kevin Kwan.
Crazy Rich Asians follows New Yorker Rachel Chu (Constance Wu) as she accompanies her longtime boyfriend, Nick Young (Henry Golding), to his best friend’s wedding in Singapore. Excited about visiting Asia for the first time, but nervous about meeting Nick’s family, Rachel is surprised to learn Nick has neglected to mention a few key details about his life.
Not only is he the scion of one of the country’s wealthiest families, but also one of its most sought-after bachelors. Being on Nick’s arm puts a target on Rachel’s back, with jealous socialites and, worse, Nick’s own disapproving mother (Michelle Yeoh) taking aim.
Featuring a fantastic ensemble cast, including Ken Jeong (The Hangover), Awkwafina (Nora From Queens) and Nico Santos (Superstore), and some of the most lavish sets imaginable, Crazy Rich Asians is as hilarious as it is romantic.
