Crazy Rich Asians lands a release date
It was the runaway hit of the summer and it’s coming to Digital HD later next month. Warner Bros. Pictures announced this week that “Crazy Rich Asians” will release on Digital HD on November 6th, followed by a Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD release on November 20th.
The romantic comedy was an instant hit with critics, opening at number-one back in August with a $26M debut. The film went on to make over $169M domestically and over $226M worldwide.
“Crazy Rich Asians” features an international cast of stars, led by Constance Wu (TV’s “Fresh Off the Boat”), Gemma Chan (TV’s “Humans”), Lisa Lu (“2012”), Awkwafina (“Ocean’s 8,” “Neighbors 2”), Ken Jeong (the “Hangover” films”) and Michelle Yeoh (TV’s “Star Trek: Discovery,” “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon”).
The film also features Henry Golding, making his feature film debut, Sonoya Mizuno (“La La Land”), Chris Pang (TV’s “Marco Polo”), Jimmy O. Yang (TV’s “Silicon Valley”), comedian Ronny Chieng (TV’s “The Daily Show”), Remy Hii (TV’s “Marco Polo”), Nico Santos (TV’s “Superstore”) and Jing Lusi (TV’s “Stan Lee’s Lucky Man”).
The story follows 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. Not only is he 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.
Jon M. Chu (“Now You See Me 2”) directed “Crazy Rich Asians,” based on the acclaimed worldwide bestseller by Kevin Kwan. Color Force’s Nina Jacobson and Brad Simpson, and Ivanhoe Pictures’ John Penotti, produced the film, with executive producers Tim Coddington, Kevin Kwan, Robert Friedland and Sidney Kimmel. The screenplay is by Peter Chiarelli and Adele Lim.
The creative filmmaking team included director of photography Vanja Černjul (TV’s “Marco Polo”), production designer Nelson Coates (“Fifty Shades Darker”), costume designer Mary Vogt (“Kong: Skull Island”) and editor Myron Kerstein (“Going in Style”). The music was composed by Brian Tyler (“Avengers: Age of Ultron”).
