WATCH: The first teaser for Crazy Rich Asians

The first teaser for John M. Chu’s adaptation of Kevin Kwan’s Crazy Rich Asians has just been released. Chu and Constance Wu tweeted their excitement about the teaser on Friday.

As previously reported, the film stars Wu (Fresh Off the Boat) as Rachel Chu who takes a trip with her boyfriend Nick Young (Henry Golding), little knowing that he holds a certain status in Singapore.

According to Collider, the film also stars Michelle Yeoh, Awkwafina, Ken Jeong, Gemma Chan, Jimmy O. Yang, Harry Shum Jr., and Ronnie Chieng.

Here’s the official synopsis of the film:

Crazy Rich Asians follows native New Yorker Rachel Chu (Wu) as she accompanies her longtime boyfriend, Nick Young (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 unprepared to learn that Nick has neglected to mention a few key details about his life. It turns out that he is not only 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 (Yeoh) taking aim. And it soon becomes clear that while money can’t buy love, it can definitely complicate things.”

Crazy Rich Asians will premiere on August 17, 2018. The full trailer will be released on Monday.
