Eric Nam has bought out a showing of “Crazy Rich Asians” to help achieve Box Office “Gold Open” for the film!
The newly released film titled ‘Crazy Rich Asians’ is a film based on the book of the same title by Kevin Kwan’s. It is also the first movie by a major Hollywood studio since 1993’s “The Joy Luck Club” to feature a leading cast that’s all Asian- American.
Excitement for this movie started gaining traction as it is a monumental milestone for Asian- American representation in the media and the film is already starting to get some great reviews! As part of trying to get the film more notorised many people have been purchasing tickets for other or buying out whole showings at theatres to ensure it’s success.
Now coined as the “Gold Open” movement for “Crazy Rich Asians” have included many of the film’s stars as well as ice dancers Maia and Alex Shibutani.
Now Korean-American singer Eric Nam has taken part in the movement- taking to Instagram to inform fans that he and his brothers bought out a showing at an Atlanta theatre.
Eric Nam wrote, “My brothers and I have decided to buy out a showing of the new movie ‘Crazy Rich Asians’ … Why? Because we’re tired of being under and misrepresented in mainstream media and we want decision makers to understand that WE ARE HERE, WE ARE ABLE, WE ARE INFLUENTIAL AND WE ARE IMPORTANT.
“We’re not just tech geeks, math nerds, and ninja assassins. We are brilliant, beautiful, sexy, hot, and much more. The success of Crazy Rich Asians is about US. OUR community. This is about directly impacting our future and futures of generations to come. To be the first full Asian cast movie in 25 years is absolutely INSANE.
“SO! Let’s pull together as a community and SHOW UP. The Nam brothers hope that we’ve made it just a little bit easier for you all to do so and to join in. And no, you don’t need to be Asian to watch this movie, enjoy the showing, or be a part of this movement. The more diverse the merrier. Hope you enjoy the movie!”
