Crazy Rich Asians Special Screening
04 September 2018
You know a movie must be brilliant when the UK release date gets moved forward by two months! So, when Warner Brothers got in touch and asked for our help with a quick turnaround guestlist for a special screening of Crazy Rich Asians we jumped into action.
After it’s HUGE SUCCESS in the US, raking $34 million in its opening weekend, and celebrity fans including Chris Pratt, Dwayne Johnson, Justin Bieber, Emma Watson, Terry Crews and Reese Witherspoon to name a few – it’s safe to say Crazy Rich Asians will go down as one of the biggest movies of 2018, not to mention it’s history making too, being the first movie in 25 years to star an all-Asian cast.
Starring Constance Wu, Henry Golding, Gemma Chan, Awkwafina, Ken Jeong and many others and based on the best-selling book of the same name by Kevin Kwan, the film follows a young Asian-American woman who travels to Singapore to meet her boyfriend’s family and is surprised when she learns they’re amongst the richest families!
We had a wonderful guestlist join us at the Ham Yard Hotel, including fan of the book Camilla Thurlow & Jamie Jewitt, Myleene Klass, Lydia Bright, comedian Joel Dommett & model Hannah Cooper, Strictly Come Dancing’s Oti Mabuse and Faye Tozer, film stars Jeremy Irvine & Jim Sturgess, actress Ellise Chappell, Hollyoak’s Sophie Porley & Amanda Clapham, sport broadcaster’s Alex Scott and Hayley McQueen, TV Presenter Sonali Shah, Holby City’s Chizzy Akudolu, MIC's Ella Willis & Julius Cowdrey, Harry Potter's Katie Leung, BBC Asian Network’s Preeya Kalidas and influencers Francesca Newman Young, Betty Bachz, Vicky Lee and Kate Tik.
