Crazy Rich Asians
Crazy Rich Asians is the first Hollywood movie in 25 years to feature an all Asian cast. The last film to hold this title was the 1993 movie The Joy Luck Club.
The film follows a Chinese-American economics professor, played by Constance Wu, as she travels to Singapore with her boyfriend and meets his exceedingly wealthy family.
The film made more than $25 million in North American theaters during its opening weekend, finishing at No. 1 in box offices, beating out films such as The Meg and Mile 22
