‘Crazy Rich Asians’ Supporters Start A #GoldOpen Movement To Pack Theaters

Kwan told The Hollywood Reporter that he and Chu turned down a big money offer from Netflix and instead went with Warner Bros. so the movie would open in theaters.
“We needed this to be an old-fashioned cinematic experience, not for fans to sit in front of a TV and just press a button,” Kwan said.
Warner Bros. is owned by CNN’s parent company.
In his tweet Chen listed the names of more than 100 other people who have helped to buy out theaters for showings.
Attorney Anthony Nguyen tweeted about the significance of supporting the film.
“The idea of the impact of movies such as this one are simple,” he wrote. “Hollywood should cast more Asians in films not for the novelty of being Asian for a stereotyped character, but because of the actor’s talent itself.”
“Crazy Rich Asians” opens nationwide August 15.
