‘Crazy Rich Asians’ Tops Box Office, Exceeds Expectations
Crazy Rich Asians debuted at No. 1 in North American theaters this weekend, surpassing industry expectations and beating out action-packed fare like Mile 22.
Warner Bros. estimates that the film earned $25.2 million over the weekend and $34 million since its opening Wednesday.
The film has had an immense amount of media buzz and created a movement on social media with the #GoldOpen hashtag that was created to drum up attention and draw a big box office.
Also, it was the first time that a rom-com has topped the box office since June of 2014.
The film, which is based on the novel of the same name by Kevin Kwan, tells the story of a college professor who meets her boyfriend’s wealthy family in Singapore.
Constance Wu and Henry Golding should be very proud.
