‘Crazy Rich Asians’ is heading to China. Will it be a hit?

Hong Kong (CNN Business)“Crazy Rich Asians” is finally getting a run in China’s lucrative movie market.

The romantic comedy is scheduled to hit theaters in mainland China on November 30, Warner Bros. said Tuesday.
There had been some doubt about whether the movie, with a plot that features incredibly rich and privileged Asians, would get the go-ahead from China’s film regulator. The Chinese government has in recent years frowned on anything that could be interpreted as a celebration of ostentatious wealth. Experts have also questioned whether the film’s depiction of high-rolling members of the Chinese diaspora in Singapore would resonate with audiences in mainland China.
