Crazy Rich Asians

Crazy Rich Asians, the hotly anticipated big screen adaptation of Kevin Kwan’s best-selling novel of the same name, was set to open nationwide Aug. 15, 2018, roughly five years after the book was first published. 

Crazy Rich Asians, l'adaptation au grand écran du best-seller de Kevin Kwan du même nom, est sorti le 15 août 2018 aux USA, environ cinq ans après la première publication du livre.

Crazy Rich Asians

Rachel Chu, an American-born Chinese with a promising career as an economics professor at NYU, and her boyfriend Nick Young, who also teaches at NYU (his field is history). Overseas, three elite Chinese families – the Youngs, the Shangs, and the T’siens – are introduced to the reader ahead of the wedding of the year century between the rich (and handsome) Colin Khoo and fashion icon Araminta Lee. The twist? Nick is from one of those rich Chinese families and has yet to tell Rachel. The wedding brings them to Singapore, where Rachel meets Nick’s family for the first time. Someone really should have warned her about Nick’s mom, Eleanor.

Rachel Chu va passer l'été à Singapour avec son petit ami, Nicholas Young. Ce qu'elle ignore c'est qu'il habite un palais, qu'il voyage en jet privé et qu'il est l'un des célibataires les plus en vue d'Asie.

“It’s really been a dream come true,” Kwan says. “Because even from the very start, when Hollywood was first interested in adapting it, I was thinking, Michelle Yeoh would be perfect, Constance Wu would be perfect. The dream sort of all came together.”

We are living in a time where ‘whitewashing’ is continuing to happen in Hollywood films, and people everywhere are getting sick and tired of it. Why can’t Hollywood stick with the script and correctly cast Asian people to star in Asian roles?

This film aims to change that with the first ever American produced film starring an all-Asian cast and both the director and producer have high hopes that viewers will embrace it.

The first major Hollywood studio film in 25 years to feature an all-Asian cast, this all-star production marks a milestone for Asian American talent in front of and behind of the camera, including Constance Wu, Henry Golding, Gemma Chan, Lisa Lu, Awkwafina, Ken Jeong, and Michelle Yeoh.

Nous vivons à une époque où l'industrie hollywoodienne ne cesse de faire du "whitewashing", et partout les gens en ont marre. Pourquoi Hollywood ne choisi des asiatiques que pour jouer des rôles asiatiques?

Premier film de studio hollywoodien depuis 25 ans, Crazy rich asian nous présente une distribution entièrement asiatique, cette production all-star marque une étape importante pour les artistes américains , notamment Constance Wu, Henry Golding, Gemma Chan et Lisa Lu. , Awkwafina, Ken Jeong et Michelle Yeoh.

Constance Wu, Henry Golding reign supreme on EW's cover. The craziest part of Warner Bros.’ Crazy Rich Asians, slated for an Aug. 17 release, isn’t the fact that its decadence makes Versailles look like a Red Roof Inn; it’s that it boasts an all-Asian cast, a rare commodity in an industry that’s still working on breaking its habit of “whitewashing” (i.e. casting white actors in ethnically Asian roles).
