Crazy Rich Asians topped the box office with a $34 million 5-day opening!
The film, directed by Jon M. Chu, is a romantic comedy based on the acclaimed worldwide bestseller by Kevin Kwan.
The story follows New Yorker Rachel Chu (Constance Wu) as she accompanies her longtime boyfriend, Nick Young (Henry 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.
Not only is he 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 (Michelle Yeoh) taking aim.
Crazy Rich Asians opened in theaters on August 15 and it’s being celebrated as the first film in 25 years to featuring an all Asian-American cast.
Awkwafina, who stars in the film took to social media to celebrate their box office success writing:
You came, we conquered.
