The Singapore cast of Crazy Rich Asians was out in full force alongside director Jon M Chu as they celebrated their hit film coming to the place where it all began.
Fans swarmed the Capitol Theatre in Singapore on Tuesday night (Aug 21) to catch a glimpse of stars like Henry Golding, Pierre Png, Tan Kheng Hua and Fiona Xie walk down the “jade-green” carpet at the Singapore premiere of the film currently sitting at the top of the North American box office.
Warner Bros' highly anticipated movie performed above expectations with an opening box-office taking of over US$35 million (S$47.9 million) in the United States, signalling that audiences may be hungry for more diverse onscreen stories and characters.
