Jon Chu

Born in California, Jon Chu is a pioneer for Asian American cinema, directing the first major Hollywood film with a predominantly Asian cast in Crazy Rich Asians. And while that may be his most well known role (and financially successful), his filmography is quite diverse. Music is a clear theme for Chu, whether dance battles in the Step Up films, biopics with Justin Bieber or broadway adapted musical In the Heights but he can also go the Michael Bay route with action and explosions in G.I. Joe. Check out this selection of Chu’s largest budget films.

Crazy Rich Asians
The story follows native New Yorker Rachel Chu (Wu) as she accompanies her longtime boyfriend, Nick Young (Golding), to his best friend’s wedding in Singapore. Excited about visiting Asia for the first time but nervous about meeting Nick’s family, Rachel is unprepared to learn that Nick has neglected to mention a few key details about his life. It turns out that he is not only the scion of one of the country’s wealthiest families but also one of its most sought-after bachelors. Being on Nick’s arm puts a target on Rachel’s back, with jealous socialites and, worse, Nick’s own disapproving mother (Yeoh) taking aim. And it soon becomes clear that while money can’t buy love, it can definitely complicate things.

Chu’s lively and authentic eye for storytelling to capture a world very much of its place, but universal in its experience.
