Glamovie.com – Becoming the Most Successful Hollywood Romantic Comedy in the Last Decade, ‘Crazy Rich Asians’ Defeats ‘Trainwreck’. ‘Crazy Rich Asians’ gets more than US $ 100 Million.
“Crazy Rich Asians” is one of the most successful films produced by Warner Bros. Even John M. Chu’s film still dominates the box office in the third week of the show. Of course it makes the profits achieved by “Crazy Rich Asians” more and more.
This romantic comedy film is expected to add more revenue of US $ 28.3 million at the end of the week, bringing the total domestic income to US $ 117 million.
With that amount, the film adapted from the book by Kevin Kwan has become Hollywood’s most successful romantic comedy in the past decade. Even this achievement exceeds the 2015 Amy Schumer film, “Trainwreck” which generated a total of US $ 110.2 million domestically.
“Crazy Rich Asians” seems to be a breath of fresh air amidst the action and horror genres that dominate the Hollywood box office today. Moreover, the audience seemed to lose interest in the romantic comedy genre since the film “The Proposal” starring Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds in 2009 ago.
Reported by Aceshowbiz on Wednesday (5/9), senior Comscore analyst Paul Dergarabedian has explained how “Crazy Rich Asians” has maintained its performance in the domestic box office so far.
“People who haven’t seen the film continue to hear about it for three weeks now. It’s like, ‘Hey, if you haven’t seen it, then you have to see it’,” Paul said.
“This is only a phenomenon of repeated appearance, people’s enthusiasm and the fact that the film is attractive to all audiences regardless of their cultural background because of its universal theme and humor,” he said.
To follow this success, Warner Bros. has planned to create a sequel. Even this project is said to have been in the initial construction phase.
In this sequel, Jon M. Chu reportedly will become the director again and the duo of the script writer “Crazy Rich Asians”, namely Peter Chiarelli and Adele Lim are also reportedly in the negotiation stage to rejoin the sequel project.
Earlier, producer Brad Simpson had hinted that the movie “Crazy Rich Asians” would be a trilogy. The story will also adapt the continuation of the book “Crazy Rich Asians” by Kevin Kwan, namely “China Rich Girlfriend” and “Rich People Problems”. (Glamovie).
