The Trailer For 'Crazy Rich Asians' Is Here & HECK YES, It Looks Good

Do you love books? Do you love movies? What about movies based on books? 

If that's you, get ready, because the trailer for Crazy Rich Asians was just released and it looks amazing!

Crazy Rich Asians follows Rachel (played by Constance Wu) and her longtime boyfriend Nick (played by Henry Golding) as they head to Singapore for Nick's best friend's wedding. Rachel is excited to meet his super elusive family, only to learn before they even leave New York, that he's crazy rich. Nick is also one of Singapore's most eligible bachelors! Now she has to contend with not only tons of women and hungry socialites who are looking to steal him away from her, but also his mother who doesn't approve of their relationship.

With Nick being one of the most eligible bachelors and his family being extremely wealthy, that makes for a trailer that is overflowing with opulence. Crazy parties, diamonds, designer clothes, private jets—the trailer has it all! And it ends, as Teen Vogue reports, "with a face-off between Rachel and Eleanor, and viewers are left wondering if the couple gets their happily ever after."

While the movie looks absolutely incredible, it's important to note how vital this film is to its audience. Instead of doing what Hollywood tends to do with whitewashing a film adaptation or remake, the cast of Crazy Rich Asians is comprised entirely of Asian actors. The Ringer points out that "Crazy Rich Asians will be the first non-period-piece Hollywood movie with an Asian-majority cast in 25 years." 

This is a step in the right direction for more inclusive films and we absolutely cannot wait for this gem! 

Crazy Rich Asians hits theaters August 17th.
