Crazy Rich Asians: Sellout!

Thursday, August 09, 2018

Deadline is reporting the sneak preview Wednesday pretty much sold out.

Warner Bros. held sneak previews last night for Jon M. Chu’s Crazy Rich Asians literally a week before opening and sold out most of its 354 locations. What’s important to note here is that the previews were paid, not free, thus underscoring moviegoers’ want-to-see for the movie based on Kevin Kwan’s bestselling book[...]

In addition, Crazy Rich Asians on tracking is looking to play beyond its core demo to all female audiences with a 5-day opening between $18M-$21M. The pic opens next Wednesday.

Nice.

Crazy Rich Asians: The Reviews Are In, Go See It (Tonight If You Can) Or When It Officially Opens Next Week

At your own risk start reading the reviews (which probably don't have spoilers, but I can't say for sure either because I don't read in that far right now):

Crazy Rich Asians isn’t about money, it’s about entitlement—and that’s a good thing
The emotional experience of watching Crazy Rich Asians.
By Stephanie Foo


When I texted my Singaporean aunt that I’d seen the movie Crazy Rich Asians, she immediately wrote back: “Terrible portrayal of Singaporeans. Was given the book — couldn’t finish. So materialistic.”

She has a point. The film, set mostly in Singapore and Malaysia, is about Rachel Chu (played by Constance Wu), a young Asian-American woman who discovers that her hot boyfriend, Nick Young (played by Henry Golding), is secretly a billionaire when he takes her home to meet his Singaporean parents.

I’m Malaysian, and nobody in my family is a billionaire. We do okay, but the only designer item I’ve gotten from my family is a knockoff ChloĆ© handbag from Petaling Street. Which is why, if Crazy Rich Asians is all about money, it was a little surprising for me to burst into tears 10 minutes into the movie.

Again - read at your own risk...

Just See It

I don't think much more needs to be said for that, and sure we can split some differences on what it's about, etc. - but shit. If White People get to have Pretty Woman - why the hell can't we have this?

Exactly.

So - let's do us all a favor--SEE THE MF MOVIE.

P.S. I Still Love You Mika Nakashima (AKA Kiss Of Death)

Legend.

Jeff Bezos Funded Amazon With White Family Money. That's Okay. Get Yours. Make Brown People Rich.

Friday, August 03, 2018

It's not just a White thing. It's a class and family inheritance thing.

But it is also a White thing.

When you look at all the advantages that White People have had--to compound that interest--you can see why White People own a lot of shit.

That's why we need to keep on making money, pushing and advancing.

So that we can pass that on--some mom invests in the next Bezos.

But she's brown.

And now other brown kids have someone to look up too--and I'm not saying there aren't great brown and black business leaders--but you know what I mean.

Compound that interest and fund the next Bezos.
