Crazy Rich Asians is now considered as one of the most successful romantic comedy movies in the last 10 years. The 2009 movie of Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds titled “The Proposal” did well at the box office as well.
According to Comscore senior media analyst Paul Dergarabedian, Crazy Rich Asians has a combination of new and repeat viewers.
People who haven’t seen the movie keep hearing about it for three weeks now. It’s like, ‘Hey, if you haven’t seen it you have to,’ and if you have, you want to take other people back.
It’s just become a phenomenon — the repeat viewing, the enthusiasm people have and the fact that it’s appealing to all audiences irrespective of their cultural backgrounds because of its universal themes, its humor. It’s just a fun time at the movies.
Crazy Rich Asians is yet to be released in some parts of Asia like Japan and in some parts of Europe including UK, Germany and France.
Book 2 of the series is “China Rich Girlfriend” which came out in 2015, while the last Kevin Kwan book in the trilogy is titled “Rich People’s Problems”, published in 2017.
