TooFab scoured through the rest of the major releases and narrowed it down to 17 picks for our handy, dandy summer movie guide.

We expect this to be the breakout comedy hit of the summer.

Release Date: August 3, 2018

"Crazy Rich Asians"

Comedy

This romantic comedy stars Constance Wu ("Fresh Off the Boat") as a young woman who discovers her boyfriend is filthy rich when she goes to meet his family at a wedding in Singapore. But will his family accept her? The trailer makes it clear the mother will certainly need some convincing, and it looks like it will be an absolute blast to watch.

Stars: Constance Wu, Michelle Yeoh, Henry Golding
