The hype surrounding Jon M. Chu’s directorial take on the popular novel Crazy Rich Asians seems to have paid off as the film took the top spot at the box-office this past weekend, raking in $34 million USD from a five-day total and $25 million USD for the three-day weekend. As the first Hollywood-produced film to feature an all-Asian cast in lead roles since The Joy Luck Club, Crazy Rich Asians has been shining a much-needed light on the Asian-American market.

Overtaking Mark Wahlberg’s Mile 22, Crazy Rich Asians has also garnered the top comedy opening of the year thus far beating out Game Night ($17 million USD), Blockers ($20.5 million USD), and The Spy Who Dumped Me ($12 million USD).

Crazy Rich Asians centers around Rachel Chu as she travels to Singapore to meet her boyfriend’s family who turn out to be “crazy rich.” The film also stars Michelle Yeoh, Awkwafina, Ken Jeong, Gemma Chan, and Jimmy O. Yang.
