Crazy Rich Asians Is Going to Make Comedy History

Crazy Rich Asians hit theaters on August 17th. While the teaser from last week was filled with laughs and lighthearted moments, complete with a hilarious joke from Rachel's bestie Goh Peik Lin (Awkwafina), the official trailer shows what awaits Rachel as she heads to Singapore for Nick's best friend's wedding.

Meeting your boyfriend's parents for the first time is never not awkward.

Based on the novel of the same name by Kevin Kwan, Crazy Rich Asians is about Rachel Chu, a Chinese-American woman of relatively average status who decides to go to a wedding in Singapore with her boyfriend, Nick Young.

It stars Singapore-based TV presenter Henry Golding as the lead Nick Young, and Constance Wu of USA sitcom Fresh Off The Boat (2015-present) fame as his girlfriend, Rachel Chu.

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.

S Muoio & Company Holds Stake in Viacom INC (VIAB)
Based on the latest 2017Q4 regulatory filing with the SEC, S Muoio & Company upped its stake in Viacom Inc (VIAB ) by 92.77%. The company reported the earnings of $1.03/Share in the last quarter where the estimated EPS by analysts was $0.94/share.

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

The first trailer for Crazy Rich Asians dropped on Monday and as the title points out, it is crazy, lavish, and boasts an all-Asian principal cast. And it soon becomes clear that while money can't buy love, it can definitely complicate things.

Color Force's Nina Jacobson ("The Hunger Games" films) and Brad Simpson ("World War Z"), and Ivanhoe Pictures' John Penotti ("Hell or High Water") produced the film, with executive producers Tim Coddington, Kevin Kwan, Robert Friedland, and Sidney Kimmel serving as executive producers.

Directed by Jon M. Chu, the movie promises to be a fresh and memorable romantic comedy.
