Crazy Rich Asians (featuring Passport People)
For our final Guest episode, we're joined by the lovely Fin from Passport People and his equally delightful fiancé Melanie to discuss an appropriately wedding-themed rom-com that took the box office by storm in 2018 - Jon M. Chu's groundbreaking hit Crazy Rich Asians.
Tune in to hear our thoughts on fashion montages, the timeless fabulousness of Michelle Yeoh, Awkwafina stealing every scene she's in and why Henry Golding is the real villain of this movie.
We also brainstorm drinking games, pitch sequel ideas and get a deep-dive into Singapore's cultural history courtesy of Fin!
Beyond the Box Set is a movie podcast with a twist. Each week we take a look at a well-known standalone movie and compete to pitch ridiculous sequel, prequel and spin-off ideas to bring them back to the big screen.
