Director Jon M. Chu’s Crazy Rich Asians Premieres August 15!

The highly-anticipated film Crazy Rich Asians, directed by Princess Grace Award winner, Jon M. Chu (2001 Film, 2011 Statue Award), will be premiering in theaters on August 15! Jon, who also directed “Now You See Me 2” and “Justin Bieber: Never Say Never”, helms a cast that includes Constance Wu (ABC’s “Fresh off the Boat”), Henry Golding (A Simple Favor) and Ken Jeong (“Community”, The Hangover).

The best-selling novel-turned-movie has been getting a lot of buzz: it’s the first Hollywood studio film in 25 years to feature a fully Asian American cast since 1993's The Joy Luck Club. Jon opted to have an open casting call – allowing for actors who’ve never been in films the opportunity to be seen and heard. “They were people like me who had watched Hollywood whitewash things, and watched roles go away because someone said an Asian man can’t be the lead of this or that” (New York Times).

Jon was happy to involve PGF-USA in the Hollywood premier of the film by #GracefullyHacking our Instagram page! You can watch the exclusive content on our Instagram profile highlights @princessgraceus, and watch the film trailer here.
