Crazy Rich Asians, which exceeded expectations with a worldwide gross of $228 million (it made $171 domestically), hits Blu-ray and DVD on November 20, with a digital release set for November 6.
Based on Kevin Kwan’s bestseller, Crazy Rich Asians centers on Rachel Chu (Constance Wu), a woman who’s shocked to discover that boyfriend Nick Young (Henry Golding) comes from a ridiculously wealthy family. Rachel’s travel to Singapore to attend the wedding of Nick’s best friend leads to complications thanks to the family’s disapproving matriarch (Michelle Yeoh). Gemma Chan, Ken Jeong, and Awkwafina round out the ensemble. Although the film received a substantial offer from Netflix, director Jon M. Chu was determined to release the film on the big screen, and it ended up being the perfect gamble.
Special features on the Blu-ray include commentary from director Jon M. Chu and novelist Kevin Kwan, deleted scenes, a gag reel and the featurette “Crazy Rich Fun” (the DVD’s sole extra is the featurette).
