Crazy Rich Asians
According to Wikipedia, Crazy Rich Asians is a 2018 American romantic comedy film directed by Jon M.

The film stars Constance Wu, Henry Golding, Gemma Chan, Lisa Lu, Awkwafina, Ken Jeong, and Michelle Yeoh. The story follows a Chinese-American professor who travels to meet her boyfriend’s family and is surprised to discover they are among the richest in Singapore.
The film was announced in August 2013 after the rights to the book were purchased. Much of the cast signed on in the spring of 2017, and filming took place from April to June of that year in parts of Malaysia, New York City, and Singapore. It is the first film by a major Hollywood studio to feature a majority cast of Asian descent in a modern setting since The Joy Luck Club in 1993.
Crazy Rich Asians premiered on August 7, 2018, at the TCL Chinese Theatre in Los Angeles and were released theatrically in the United States on August 15, 2018, by Warner Bros. Pictures. The film received positive reviews from critics, with praise for its acting, production, and costume design. The film grossed over $238 million worldwide, making it the highest-grossing romantic comedy in a decade. Two sequels are currently in development based on the novel’s follow-ups China Rich Girlfriend and Rich People Problems.
