From the looks of these photos, “Crazy Rich Asians” just has to be Hollywood gold.
Entertainment Weekly shared the first stills last month from the upcoming movie, which is slated for an August 2018 release. And damn, does it look like an extravagant affair.
The photos feature actors Constance Wu, Michelle Yeoh, Henry Golding, Awkwafina, Sonoya Mizuno and many others in opulent locations, sporting haute couture near fast cars.
Seriously, if you weren’t excited before, you probably are now.
Because many of the actors are from countries outside Asia, Awkwafina had earlier told HuffPost, they’re familiar with the experience of being the token Asian on set. This movie is revolutionary not only for Asian-American consumers, who have not seen themselves so fully reflected in a cast for years, but for those actors as well.
“We’re not all ‘Asia Asians,’” Awkwafina told HuffPost. “So there was something beautiful about all these actors being in Singapore, doing a movie that is going to be so big for our people.”
