EW blessed our eyeballs last week with exclusive photos from the latest adaptation of Kevin Kwan’s novel – set to premiere August 2018. They also out the films stars, Henry Golding & Constance Wu on their cover in a gorgeous photoshoot dripping with opulence and gold.
Kwan’s novel (the first in a series of three books) focuses on Rachel Chu, a professor of economics at NYU who heads back to Singapore with her boyfriend Nick Young for his best friend’s wedding. Kwan has recently said that he hope to adapt the other books in the series as well, Hunger Games style!
