That wedding scene. God, that wedding scene. We haven’t seen anything like it. Unlike in the book, the Vienna Boys Choir didn’t make an appearance, but that didn’t matter. We won’t spoil it for you. But here’s a clue: Sonoya Mizuno as bride Araminta had to wear a waterproof wedding dress for it. Director Jon M. Chu is right—it was magical.


The food shots. Food always gets the spotlight in Kevin’s books and it’s no different in the movie. “Jon Chu said to me, if people don’t leave my movie hungry, I will have failed. There’s gonna be so much food porn and so much fashion porn,” said Kevin. Here’s a tip: enjoy great Asian food before heading to the cinemas. Or plan an epic post-screening meal.

Kevin Kwan’s cameo. “I play a potted plant. I’m a palm tree. They dress me up in brown and leaves,” he joked during our interview. But nope, he doesn’t play a plant. See if you can spot him in the gossip montage.

KRIS AQUINO as Princess Intan with Constance Wu who plays Rachel

Kris Aquino as princess. You can blink and trust us, you won’t miss Kris (and that fabulous Michael Cinco creation). She is serene, subdued and regal as Princess Intan.

RACHEL (Constance Wu) and Peik Lin (Awkwafina)

Three words: “Bok, bok bitch.” Thanks to Constance Wu’s improv, we have a new battle cry.

Peik Lin and Rachel

All of Awkwafina’s scenes. She’s been tagged a scene-stealer and for all the right reasons. We’re not crazy about the blonde wig but we’re crazy about Peik Lin. Heck, we’re crazy about her family, too.

That epic mahjong scene. We don’t want to spoil it so we’ll leave it at that.

Gemma Chan as Astrid

The tag scene. Because we smell a sequel. Please, there has to be a sequel. We need more Astrid and Charlie.

In Philippine cinemas Aug. 22, “Crazy Rich Asians” is distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Entertainment Company.
