'Crazy Rich Asians' stars shine at Hollywood premiere

Crazy rich asians

Crazy Rich Asians, based on the best-selling novel, hits theaters on August 15.

Bringing Kevin Kwan's hit novel to the screen, "Crazy Rich Asians" gets the most important part of the movie very right, casting Constance Wu ("Fresh Off the Boat") as Rachel Chu - the NY economics professor thrust into a world of staggering opulence, and almost-to-scale sniping and judgment - and Michelle Yeoh as Eleanor, the imperious mother of Rachel's otherwise-perfect boyfriend, Nick Young (Henry Golding, making a strong bid for romantic heartthrob status).

Constance Wu, Henry Golding and Gemma Chan recently sat down with E!

'It's no secret that there's a lot riding on this movie, which seems to have anticipated the call for wider representation in Hollywood, but comes with the added pressure that one bomb is all it takes for skittish development executives to nix future projects featuring almost all-Asian casts.

Gemma Chan, Sonoya Mizuno, Chris Pang, Ronny Chieng, Nico Santos, Awkwafina, and Ken Jeong also turned up in their glamorous best, representing a new batch of Hollywood royalty whose diversity has set the world abuzz.

Richard Lawson of Vanity Fair also gave the movie a fairly positive review, but yearned for more from it.

Leading man Henry Golding, who plays Singapore's most eligible bachelor Nick Young in the film, showed up in a pale blue suit. Most of all, it's a concerted effort by a long-neglected Hollywood minority to storm the big-studio citadel and possibly even beat it at its own game'. In fact, it's the first major Hollywood production that isn't a period piece to have an all-Asian cast in 25 years. This film is not just for Asians, it's for anyone who has ever felt that they struggle to be accepted or they've been otherized. "I never dreamed I would get to star in one. because I had never seen that happen to someone who looked like me", she wrote.

Finally, Carlos Aguilar of The Wrap lavished praise on Crazy Rich Asians, particularly hailing the "enchanting" performance of Constance Wu.
