WATCH: First-Ever Trailer for CRAZY RICH ASIANS

We Filipinos value family in our lives and it seems that this is one of the primary focuses in the first trailer of "Crazy Rich Asians. As one of the key lines in the trailer reveals, “You can choose love, but you can’t choose family.” The story follows native New Yorker Rachel Chu (Constance Wu) as she accompanies her longtime boyfriend, Nick Young (Henry Golding), to his best friend’s wedding in Singapore. Excited about visiting Asia for the first time but nervous about meeting Nick’s family, Rachel is unprepared to learn that Nick has neglected to mention a few key details about his life. 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. Being on Nick’s arm puts a target on Rachel’s back, with jealous socialites and, worse, Nick’s own disapproving mother (Michelle Yeoh) taking aim. And it soon becomes clear that while money can’t buy love, it can definitely complicate things. Watch the first official trailer of Warner Bros. Pictures' new romantic comedy “Crazy Rich Asians” below:
