Just in time for Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month, Netflix dropped the trailer to the anticipated Asian American comedy, Always Be My Maybe.
Starring Ali Wong and Randall Park as childhood friends who grew apart only to be brought back together 15 years later, Always Be My Maybe looks hilarious and sweet. The trailer also has a few surprises with Daniel Dae Kim and Keanu Reeves as potential love rivals vying for Wong’s character.
Wong, also one of the writers for the film, is a genius.
Always Be My Maybe releases on May 31 on Netflix.
Check out the trailer below:
Always Be My Maybe Official Synopsis:
Childhood friends Sasha and Marcus have a falling out and don’t speak for 15 years. But when Sasha, now a celebrity chef in Los Angeles, returns to her hometown of San Francisco to open a new restaurant, she runs into her old pal — a happily complacent musician still living at home and working for his dad. Though the two are reluctant to reconnect, they soon find the old sparks — and maybe some new ones — are there.
