The trailer also gives fans a glimpse of another fan-favorite: Michelle Yeoh looking ideal as Eleanor Young, Nick's unflagging mother who is determined to keep him from marrying Rachel.

Crazy Rich Asians also stars Awkwafina as Rachel's friend Goh Peik Lin, Ken Jeong as Peik Lin's dad, and the legendary Michelle Yeoh as Nick's "tiger mom".

Glitz, glamour, high stakes and gorgeous people so wealthy they're described as "crazy rich" - the first trailer for the big-screen adaptation Crazy Rich Asians is as opulent and spunky as you'd expect from a movie based on Kevin Kwan's larger-than-life bestseller.

"Daaamn, Rachel, he's like the Asian Bachelor!".


"You really should have told me you're like the Prince William of Asia", says Chu (Wu). But ultimately it will all boil down to who the characters love. With Fresh Off the Boat's Constance Wu and newcomer Henry Golding joining the cast as Rachel and Nick, respectively, Crazy Rich Asians started filming in the spring of 2017.

From the trailer it's clear that this movie's got it all: couture outfits, fancy cars, hot abs, and juicy family drama.

But Rachel hits an obstacle: Nick's mother, played by Michelle Yeoh of "Star Trek: Discovery."

All the single women of Singapore's upper class are after Nick, so Rachel attempts to navigate around the drama while others try to bring her down. "I think when she looks at Rachel, she's like, 'You are totally wrong for this, because you don't even have a concept of what you're coming into'".
