Crazy Rich Asians stars Constance Wu as an American woman who gets a culture shock against the obscene rich family of her boyfriend in Singapore. The studio drew the opening of the film strategically to a Wednesday earlier in the summer.
We knew that we would get avants who would read the book and a great Asian follower & # 39 ;, said Jeff Goldstein, president of Warner Bros. We thought it was good, we got good reviews, open on Wednesday, word-of-mouth spread and really continued the film on the weekend, and that's exactly what happened. & # 39;
As of July 26, box office experts predicted that the film would open for at least $ 18 million in the first five days, but no one expected a launch of more than $ 30 million.
& # 39; I think the audience is not an obvious audience, "Goldstein said. & # 39; If you get a culturally important event like this movie, I think it's just as wild. & # 39;

The effort was great for the first studio-produced film led by Asian-Americans in 25 years.
The filmmakers have even rejected a large offer from Netflix to offer the historically important film a theatrical platform. Cast members and fans started using the hashtag #GoldOpen to encourage more open weekend support.
Director Jon M. Chu tweeted his rating Sunday and asked the audience to spread the word further.
& # 39; We still have a long way to go, but our message to the world has been heard. We have arrived, "wrote Chu. & # 39; Let's start talking about our stories now! We have a lot more to say. And I do not want to wait another 25 years to see them. This is just the beginning. & # 39;
