Warner Brothers

Warner Bros.’ Crazy Rich Asians made a profound impact this past weekend at movie theaters everywhere as it gained a gross total of $34 million dollars. 

The film Crazy Rich Asians was number one at the box office this past weekend and had beaten a few films for the top spot. This included The Meg, which scored over $21 million, Mile 22 at over $13 million, and Mission: Impossible — Fallout at over $10 million respectively during the weekend box office. It goes to show you that audiences

Crazy Rich Asians is a film adaptation of Kevin Kwan’s 2013 novel of the same name; the novel is the first part of a trilogy by Kwan. The film is also the first Hollywood film to be led by an all Asian-American cast since the release of Buena Vista’s The Joy Luck Club back in 1993 — about twenty-five years ago. The film’s director Jon M. Chu’s hopes to direct the sequel to Crazy Rich Asians, labelled China Rich Girlfriend, should the film continue to make strides in the box office.
