Destination Wedding Movie Trailer

Every summer, I look forward to the real weddings I’m set to attend and the films that come out and represent every kind of wedding we’ve ever been to. “Destination Wedding” isn’t your average rom-com though. It’s the first I’m ever hearing of this film and this trailer, but we’re already intrigued. Winona Ryder used to have feelings for the groom and Keanu Reeves is a guest that simply hates love. Maybe these two will end up together? Isn’t that what happens in all movies like this? The film is set to be released August 24, 2018 and this is the 4th film these two have starred in together.

Searching Movie Trailer

After David Kim (John Cho)’s 16-year-old daughter goes missing, a local investigation is opened and a detective is assigned to the case. But 37 hours later and without a single lead, David decides to search the one place no one has looked yet, where all secrets are kept today: his daughter’s laptop. In a hyper-modern thriller told via the technology devices we use every day to communicate, David must trace his daughter’s digital footprints before she disappears forever.

This film premiered at Sundance this year and I’m really intrigued by it! I rarely fine myself at movie theaters these days because… a) time b) money c) convenience, but other than Crazy Rich Asians, this will the 2nd movie I’m likely to see. I love thrillers like this and actually found out about this film earlier this year because someone I follow on Instagram is in the film. We all know John Cho for the comedies that he has been in previously; how cool is it to see him in something more on the serious side?

Crazy Rich Asians Movie Trailer

The trailer for Crazy Rich Asians debuted earlier this week and I’ve just been waiting to write a post about this. I haven’t read the book yet, but am making it my goal to finish it before the movie is released this summer on August 17th. I like the trailer, but I think I’m probably going to love this film even more. This is the first major Hollywood film with an all-asian cast since Joy Luck Club. In case you needed a refresher, Joy Luck Club came out 25 year ago.

My parents will laugh at this, but long ago, I dreamed of being an actress. I tried out for the school’s play in elementary school and when the audition process ended at 8PM and was way past my dinner time and closer to my bed time, I told my mother I wanted to quit. I didn’t have the stamina for that back then and that’s okay, but as I got older, I started to think about who my role models would be in the Asian community in this industry. I looked to Suchin Pak who was a news correspondent on MTV’s TRL and then went on to tell the stories of many others. I looked to Lisa Ling who more or less did the same thing, but over at CNN. I looked to my professor who was more like me in many ways that I could never imagine. I’ve always had a love for tv and movies and I couldn’t wait for those times when the Asian character was no longer just an overachiever in school with tiger parents. This is one of those moments and I don’t think it’s going to disappoint.

Based on the best-selling book by Kevin Kwan, the romantic comedy is about Rachel (Constance Wu) an American professor who finds out her Singaporean boyfriend is actually from one of the richest families in Asia.

The film is directed by Jon M. Chu and also stars Henry Golding, Michelle Yeoh, Sonoya Mizuno, Gemma Chan and Awkwafina.

“Hot Summer Nights” Trailer

Is it crazy that we only want to see this film because of Timothée Chalamet? I know I’m not the only one that is obsessed with him especially after “Call Me By Your Name.” But I can say that we were fans of his ever since “Homeland.” So there.

“Won’t You Be My Neighbor?” Trailer

It’s a little strange to become emotional over a movie trailer, but when you’re someone that also gets emotional over wedding videos for people that you don’t know – nothing is surprising anymore. Mr. Rogers was a large part of my upbringing. My parents tell me that when I was younger, I adored him. At my age now, hearing that seems a little creepy? Unconventional? But when you’re a child, you’re so impressionable and that kind of innocence is something to be treasured.

This documentary will be shown in select theaters in June. I’m very interested in learning more about the man behind the cardigan and who Fred was outside of my television.

Thoroughbreds

Two upper-class teenage girls in suburban Connecticut rekindle their unlikely friendship after years of growing apart. Together, they hatch a plan to solve both of their problems-no matter what the cost.

I’m a fan of anything that Olivia Cooke (Me, Earl and the Dying Girl) is in and a new fan of Anya Taylor-Joy who got her big break from Split. This movie is a little bit of a thriller, which is why it’s interesting to me, but it also makes me feel sad knowing Anton Yelchin has passed and that this is one of his last films.
