Director Jon M. Chu and some cast members of “Crazy Rich Asians” were recently in Beijing for the film’s mainland China premiere.
International action superstar Jackie Chan even graced the event to support Michelle Yeoh and the team behind the multi-million dollar blockbuster.
Chu posted images from the premiere on his Instagram account with the caption: “When @jackiechan shows up to support @michelleyeoh_official and the #CrazyRichAsians in Beijing. What an honor! What a night! Movie comes out in China on November 30!”
The movie, which was earlier feared to miss a lucrative release date in China, is finally set to go on general release there on November 30.
It was earlier speculated that Beijing regulators might block the movie after Warner Bros. failed to hear back from China’s film bureau over the summer. Chinese regulators finally announced the film’s China release date last month.
“Crazy Rich Asians” has so far racked up a worldwide gross of $236.1 million against a production budget of $30 million. By tapping into Asia’s richest box-office market, the film can get even richer than it already is.
