BWW Previews: Movie Trailer Drops for CRAZY RICH ASIANS Based on the Best Selling Book by Kevin Kwan

The hype is real when it comes to the upcoming summer movie Crazy Rich Asians, based on the book by Kevin Kwan. The movie is already making major waves because it's the first all-Asian cast in more than two decades, and long overdue.

The movie stars Henry Golding in his first movie role as Nick Young and Constance Wu (Fresh Off the Boat) as Rachel Chu. The story revolves around Nick wanting to take his girlfriend to meet his family in Singapore, but he never tells her that he's insanely rich and that everyone in Singapore will be gunning to break them up upon their arrival. The book was hailed as a modern-day Jane Austen spin on upperclass life and spawned two sequels, CHINA RICH GIRLFRIEND and RICH PEOPLE PROBLEMS.

Here's a full summary for the novel CRAZY RICH ASIANS:

Crazy Rich Asians is the outrageously funny debut novel about three super-rich, pedigreed Chinese families and the gossip, backbiting, and scheming that occurs when the heir to one of the most massive fortunes in Asia brings home his ABC (American-born Chinese) girlfriend to the wedding of the season.

When Rachel Chu agrees to spend the summer in Singapore with her boyfriend, Nicholas Young, she envisions a humble family home, long drives to explore the island, and quality time with the man she might one day marry. What she doesn't know is that Nick's family home happens to look like a palace, that she'll ride in more private planes than cars, and that with one of Asia's most eligible bachelors on her arm, Rachel might as well have a target on her back. Initiated into a world of dynastic splendor beyond imagination, Rachel meets Astrid, the It Girl of Singapore society; Eddie, whose family practically lives in the pages of the Hong Kong socialite magazines; and Eleanor, Nick's formidable mother, a woman who has very strong feelings about who her son should--and should not--marry.

Uproarious, addictive, and filled with jaw-dropping opulence, Crazy Rich Asians is an insider's look at the Asian JetSet; a perfect depiction of the clash between old money and new money; between Overseas Chinese and Mainland Chinese; and a fabulous novel about what it means to be young, in love, and gloriously, crazilyrich.
