ICYMI the trailer we’ve all been waiting for has just dropped. The film adaptation of Kevin Kwan’s bestseller is here and, one thing’s for sure, you’ll want to treat yo’self to a choc top and large popcorn the moment Crazy Rich Asians hit theatres.
Introducing Nicolas Young (Henry Golding), the Prince Harry of rich Asians (their words, not ours) and Rachel (Constance Wu), maybe more the Kate than the Megan, a native new Yorker who finds herself in the classic rich boy falls for poor girl conundrum.
The hilarity starts with Nick taking Rachel home to Singapore for his best friend’s wedding and to meet his family. The clincher? Rachel has NFI that Nick is essentially The Asian Bachelor and, even better, rich. We’re talking hectically rich, from one of the country’s wealthiest families.
With one liners like “an unrefined banana—yellow on the outside, white on the inside,” and the perfect half a cup of cray mother-in-law, this is laugh out loud funny with a slice of romance, aka it’s pretty much poised to reach cult-like status.
Check out what else is dropping at the cinema this month.
