In the in the south west part of the country the northeast part of the country is horrific Christian. It's not a fun place to be here. I just last week was a bus was pulled over in. Whoever didn't recite this commitment to the Koran to Mohammad? We're just gunned down one of the towns near some all in she entities hated in much of the world. It's hated here. It's just not as blatant as it is in other other places. Yeah you see you bring it up a much bring it up and I'm Tracy. She's literally suffered over the last couple of months for the name of Christ is friendships severed simply because she shared the Gospel. Praise the Lord for that. That's the paradox. Christianity blessed consider those who are persecuted for righteousness say to them. I want these things things will happen. More and more and we're the sister or brother goes through that we need to recognize that you see. That's helped me a lot over the last few years. Well this decade the decade of revival for the Church or apostasy that is a very important and complex question in light. The current environment of the physical visible church will the decade that we're moving into a decade of revival or apostasy. Now if you go down and you talk to the circus leaders at Bethel they're going to say we're having a great revival right now. The church is spreading all over the world and see and this is where it gets very frustrating and it can get very confusing because you got a lot of people in the church saying there's a revival happening what is it. It's evil concert cries. It's not a revival. It's decay and apostasy corruption. It's being so all over the world you see so important for us to push back against against that and if we can look back and say there was a period of revival in the twenty twenties that it was a true revival. We got far as my opinion on that. I think there's going to be a revival but I think it's going to be in a very small percentage of the church. I think the true the church will be a very small portion of the church going slower but it will be growing radically spirit. I think we're GONNA see much more word of the truth gorgeous spirit strengthening and and helping us do things their way beyond what we can imagine in the next ten years in the true church fighting back against what's going on falsely the name of Christ. What might you look back on? This is important. What might you look back on personally as a Christian on December Twenty Ninth Two Thousand Twenty nine view? Go ahead ten years you look back. Did you grow and mature in the Lord. Did you live sacrafices Sakr. Officially where did you live selfishly. Did you endure and suffer for the name of Christ or did you compromise for the world. Did you enter into the harvest and enter into the battlefield. Where did you sit apathetically on the sidelines? Were you on fire for the Lord Gordon His Gospel or lukewarm and tepid contributing little or nothing in the cause of the Gospel. He's he's a radical questions to ask ourselves slushy this day in age. See things are as they are. What do we want to look back on exactly ten years? Look what look what. Let us be apart last. What do we look back and go? Wow look at all the money I made all the stuff you see and it's all just we these are these. Are the questions that really. We need to consider personally as families as a church going forward. Matthew Six nineteen through twenty one says. Do not lay up for yourselves. trudges on Earth were moth and rust. Destroy where thieves break in and steal but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven where neither moth nor rust destroys and were thieves. Do do not break in and steal for where your treasure is there. Your heart will be also will the treasure that you acquire over the next ten years corruptible treasurer or return to treasure. Be Ten years. 'cause I jon Chu fifteen through seventeen you not love the world or the things in the world if anyone loves the world the the love of the father is mine in him for all that is in the world. The desires of the flesh desires of the eyes and pride of life is not from the father. But it's from from the world and the world is passing away along with its desires but whoever does the will of God abides forever so in this time we need to look to Christ you need to abide in his word. We need to proclaim the Gospel and we need to obey Romans. Twelve to do not be conformed to this world but be transformed by the renewing of your minds that by testing you may discern what is the will of God is good and acceptable. Perfect time as we are. It's amazing what is taking place with what we've been blessed. It's amazing I mean that's some tells me he says he can't understand how people just keep coming to church he said it's it's crazy now patrick's telling me the same thing he said in Nairobi that you branches we have their people. Just keep coming. Praise the Lord and alive Abbas this because they're watching this every Sunday and now they're sharing it and they're taking the messages they're sharing it and the word is getting out that there's truth in this place. It's not nothing to do with me. It has everything to do with the truth. John Fourteen sixty. That's what people there are hungry for. Asked why it was freaky Nairobi. The night we stayed there before we left all of a sudden six in the morning. There's the Muslim thing going on all throughout the city. I had no idea that that was so prevalent there. They have those prayers broadcast. All across the city. In what was amazing is a couple hours later. We're heading to church and as you're driving through certain heard neighborhoods. You're hearing Christian singing. So there's these little cells of Christianity amongst all that and now we get to have a profound found effect on that by sharing. The I mean. It's it's awesome. It's just amazing and all the people that are now being reached through recovery. Reformation had a guy who I've been speaking to for the last month who was in a for ten years and two months ago something's really started seeking truth came across the website. He's become a believer. Now I recall Kost contract. And he's he's he's just thrilled to be able to share the gospel with people that are trapped model Leeann addiction but in these false teachers recovering. All these things are happening happening simply because people want truth and I think this is. What's going to be exciting as we go forward into the coming ten years and we're going to be entering tring battlezone? It's going to be more difficult going forward. But it's going to be more blessed and it's going to be brighter and more glorious because we're in the battle I would much rather be in a battle board. See we don't have to be more. Were engaged in the most important battle. We can be engaged as we go forward so close two thousand nineteen. I want before take the offering tracy leads in a couple of songs. I want to thank everyone who has held throughout two thousand nineteen because we have gotten help from people in here and we've got help from from people that watch online at people that have come through our website and our reach continues to grow it just keeps reaching more and more in this coming year. Obviously we need more and more support as we go forward to take advantage of all the opportunities that have been given to us. We are in a position to accomplish so real much if we just put our noses to the grindstone this sacrificial and we take we take advantage of every opportunity that the Lord Lord puts before us to share the Gospel go forward something praise the Lord. I'm excited you know how you could get depressed and you could get upset when you look at. What's going on in the in the country and the world politically and everything else? If you really look at it from a Christian perspective you think man. This is a cool time to be a lot. I know drawn towards the end times. Mainly mealy for two things one seems simplistic earthquakes everywhere. Like like off the scale to articles this week in the earthquakes happening around around the world or like nothing anybody's ever seen. They said California in the last week like scientists. That aren't surprised if it just breaks off. It's been shaking. Thanks so much and then the apostasy and the church is one of the signs of the in times many will be led astray will fall away and follow false. Fourteen has one of the signs that were entering a very special time in the history of the church.

"So some reaction for the vendors and game trailer, maybe bordering on some spoiler speculation. And also talking you talk about an Easter egg hidden in that captain marvel trailer as well, this is slash film editor in chief, Peter Surata and Jenny mantis podcast is slash foam. Weakened editor bad, omen and writer whiter. And Billy everyone. You know yesterday it was raining here in LA today. It's a sunny day. This has been your your daily podcast weather report from. Yeah. For me. Okay. Now, let's move on. Because there's a lot to get to today, including that huge avengers trailer, bow before we get to the, you know, the comic book goodness, we'll start off with crazy rich agents, which turns out they're going to be filming the sequels back to back itchy. What's going on here? Yeah. So we knew that a sequel to crazy which Asians was already being lit in in the works. And that would be a sequel adapting Kevin Kwan's fellow follow up novel, China Mitch girlfriend, but now the producers crazy rich, Asians, Nina Jacobson and Brad Simpson revealed that they'll be shooting too crazy which Asian sequels back to back in that will adopt rich girlfriend and the third book in the crazy bitch, Asians trilogy. It is called rich people problems. So the script is currently being worked on by Adele limb and Peter Torelli. But this will mean that fans. Will have a longer wait upfront because the film's won't likely be able to start shooting until twenty twenty. But by the time they do finish. It will get them both out a lot sooner. And that's because the reason for the scheduling is because the cast now is in huge demand. Henry Golding, as you know is starring in big movies left. And right. He was in a simple favor this summer. In addition to crazy, rich, Asians, Constance Wu has scored a Golden Globe nomination for her role in crazy. Rich, Asians Aquafina has also blown up as has civilian Mizuno and Gemma Chan and Michelle Yeoh is Michelle Yeoh. So everyone's busy Jon CHU is also working on the in the heights movie as well. And once he wrapped that he will start working on both crazy, which Asian sequels likely by two thousand twenty this seems crazy to me because like until now I feel like it's all always been like big huge blockbusters the shot back to back against vaccines or two and three started. It we have the Lord of the rings true. The matrix the hobbit the, you know, the avengers the last two avengers films. This is the probably the first way romantic comedy big enough to shoot to have a back back sequel. Yeah, I think you're right. I can't think of any other romantic comedies or anything. That's like non action film or a Y franchise being shot back to back like this. That to me is just crazy. It's crazy. How popular this? This film. Franchise is. Yeah. Yeah. It's exciting. Speaking of sequels, we have word that Warner Brothers already planning in sequel. Even though the first film has not made its big splash. Brad. Tell us about it. Big splash, puns fun. Yes, man is already having a sequel in the works because the box office tracking is already looking so good. Plus, this is a DC extended universe movie. So obviously, we hope this is going to be a big franchise and turn into one of the more successful parts of a comic book universe that has otherwise had its fair share of stumbles. There's it's not anything official yet. But they're just are talks happening behind the scenes doesn't seem like it's been Greenland, or at least we haven't heard about it being green lit yet. But they're early bus rock lament has been pretty decent so far. So it's not surprising. That Warner broS wants to get a jump start on aqua man and ride any potential good buzz that might come out of it. As we know next week. They're going to be having the early screenings of the movie for Amazon prime members. Which is also a good sign means they have confidence in the movie, and they wanna get word of mouth going from fans who who see it a week before it hits theaters everywhere else..

"You know, I I was a fan of GI Joe as a kid I had like all the action figures I loved watching the cartoons. The the movies are kind of disappointing. I you know, I was very excited that Jon CHU. You know, who went on to direct crazy rich agents. Did that GI Joe sequel that you mentioned in that sneak is seen that whole action sequence? I think is the best part of that movie for probably actually when we that's the only part of that movie worth watching. I think, but you know, that had John CHU involved. And I feel like that was I almost feel that that was the only reason he wanted to be on that project was for that scene. Like, he really just wanted to do that scene. I feel like with the talent of John chew. I'm not excited. I Nick is movie. I I love snake is I know I I'm not going to beat this to death. Because I know I've said this many times in the past and the podcasts by feeling a character. Like snake is the appeal of him is the mystique, and you don't know. Who is below the mask, and I feel like a movie like this. You're going to have to take that mask off and go into his origins in two. He is the person that I think that ruined takes away the mystique. So I just don't understand why they're making this movie, but proved me wrong. So. Yeah. And also, I just looked this up. I I said I think earlier that that Robert twenty directed both red movies. He actually just directed. The first one and dean parasol directed the second one. So you can save your emails people. I know. Okay. I mentioned that someone's dad probably watched read.

I'd constantly deal that way, I'm from right outside of Detroit. You know in these situations. I never I never really comfortable in them. Because I've always convinced they're gonna throw me out. So I just feel like an interloper sort of all right now. Here's the question. I've been dying to ask you, and I I hate to put you on the spot. But I have heard a rumor, and I want to hear it right from the horse's mouth. I need you to confirm or deny. Is it true Paul fig recently? It was so hot in southern California that you did not wear a three piece suit one day. And in fact, only wore a two piece, geez. Who told you that who told you that guy? Yes. It is. I did shed my best once, oh, I know. I know don't let this news out. But, but it was a double breasted jacket. I wore so technically, it's gotta the tweet. Is there is there ever a day where you wake up ago F it? I'm just gonna wear shorts and a tee shirt and some converse is like everybody else in the world. I cannot get dressed up again today. Good lord. No. I can't. I can't physically do body rejects it. You know, what my friend being look terrible when I dress. Like, oh, I don't think. So I think Paul would look great in no fear shirt and some jams. Like a Jimmy Buffett concert. Never call. Up. Let me ask you about tonight. Let me ask you about a simple favor. Because when I heard that you were doing a movie with Anna Kendrick and Blake lively is the leads. I was in from there. Then when I found out it was like, a psychological thriller. Awesome. But I have heard from so many people, and you even tweeted someone that saw that said it so unapologetically funny. I thought oh thank God. Because those two are hysterical women and not a lot of people know how funny Blake lively as. Oh, it's crazy. I mean, they are so funny. And it really look it's a thriller. First and foremost, I love the old Hitchcock thrillers, where they were, you know, everything was suspenseful and exciting. But you also you laughed a lot because they had a they had a sense of humor about about because he'll thrillers sort of by their nature art, kind of absurd. The end of the day. And as such extreme characters that you know, is really fun to just have an-and Blake you play play it real. But play it, very extreme. So that you really just you know, there's lots of laps in your jump out of your seat a bunch. Would you say this is this is different from any movie you've ever directed before? Paul. Yeah. I would say that. Although I mean, honestly, all my movies are, you know, they're John genre films. Basically, you know, whether it'd be a wedding movie buddy cop movie movie inside fantasy scifi thing. And I've always loved thrillers. And you know, but but again, I would never make a movie that I couldn't have humor in in. So in some ways, it's kind of likes like spy, but but a little darker than spy was in the little more than ten. We are talking to director and producer Paul feed. The movie is called a simple favor. It opens in theaters everywhere. Tomorrow against the alley mentioned, Anna Kendrick lake livelier in the movie, I have been very vocal Paul on the air since crazy rotations came out about my man crush on Henry Golding, he is a beautiful beautiful, man.

The podcast they call us Bruce and a CNN featured, contributor and he started with a primer on the game's rules four players at a time gathered together facing one another across shape east west north south and east them has tiles in their hand Thirteen tiles essentially that they're using. To construct sets or sequences either matched identical characters, or symbols or sequence in order of a suit and, the game was intensely complicated not just because of the rules of, play, which, actually, are, fairly straightforward but the scoring itself is just It is something. You could actually do it PHD Solely. On, there are so many different styles of. Scoring somebody different patterns that win something different different Modalities essentially in which you. Can earn points or lose points of the case may be that, it takes a lifetime to master the scene in the film is. Not in Kevin Kwan's bestselling novel but it plays a critical role in the narrative of the film so without giving away too many, spoilers or details who's playing the game that scene and why are. So many specifics of the game they're playing like? Who's sitting where the number eight tiles representing bamboo. Why are all of those little things so critical. This is a martial arts scene at its core it was inspired by actually crouching tiger hidden dragon there's this. Rooftop fight that Michelle Yeoh is a part. Of in that movie that Jon CHU is Has said in multiple interviews now was the. Inspiration for the the way the scene flows the pace of it, and even the sound of it so it's it's combat with tiles. Eight is tile to tile head head combat but it's not just the combat or even the dialogue which is amazing in the scene, that really matters it's the game play and they actually hired if. You will emerge on choreographer to ensure that the? Hand would play out in a way to comment. On what they're saying and end up in a.

Get if you don't know the. Game when Rachel is sitting down she said, she seated in what you call the west seat and, she invites Eleanor sit down as the dealer the. Person control in the east seat right and of course you know we're talking here about Rachel representing the west America and Eleanor Representative East Asia right as they play the game you can see that two different strategies are going on eleanor's trying to assemble a set of matched sets. If you will A hand in which matched characters are the winning victory and her whole ethos is we. Need to stick. Together as Asians or as people specifically of this set of wealthy Chinese Singaporeans what she calls gooky. Lung it's a hockey on phrase which means one of us and she she has said to Rachel you're not one of, us you're, not cookie along so she's twenty create matches, she's trying to create cocky long right meanwhile Rachel is trying to assemble. A winning hand out of bamboo now the bamboo suit is, is really kind of unique in some ways because it represents, a plant that symbolizes prosperity and fortune in in, Chinese tradition that's a moment we realize, that. The conversation happening, on the, tables just as important as the conversation happening above it you wrote a three, thousand? Word article about the scene, for vox and in reading it and thinking about watching this scene I wondered does the movie operate on a different level If you understand the game does your understanding of Mahjong affect your understanding of the, film absolutely does but it's not necessary right and I think this is what's really powerful. About how John and the creative team behind the film decided to, approach this work they knew, that there was going to. Be asking for this, film that would appeal to. Or connect with people at that, discreet? Level, of uniqueness right but then on the other hand there universal. Human, themes of love of heartbreak a family that were consistently regardless whether you pick up those themes and this scene is maybe emblematic of that let. Me ask you. One non Mahjong question your son Hudson is an actor on fresh off the boat and I think. You and I can easily agree that Hollywood has a terrible history casting Asian actors and lead roles and even worse hiring, Asian writers, and directors so how important is a movie Like crazy rich Asians it is unbelievably important I think what Craig Asians. Does is it intersects these these two tropes. As idea that Asian American actors finally perhaps getting a chance, to be seen to be put into these opportunities but also that our stories are being, told with a specificity that, will not allow them to be rewritten and. What I mean by this is Hollywood doesn't just have a, tradition. Of not casting Asians in non white rolls. It has a tradition of casting, white, actors, in Asian roles there. Were students who want to make this film if he would recast Rachel chew as Rachel Smith and put, a, white woman in that lead role and they refused so this is what, they got they they stood their ground and I think everything's different now Jeff thanks so much for coming. On the show thank you so much You can find crazy rich..

One and done Based on the book John shoe has, already started teasing crazy, rotations won the box office thirty four million Well that's really a. Lot for rom com summer it was not expected Okay We're hoping it would do twenty. Million. Right. Okay He did so Jon, CHU is already, of course hinting at of course China. Rich people which I think is the second trilogy but he told us in an interview that the producers behind, the movie, wanted? Him not to call it crazy rich Asians why because they thought people get mad and then they. Also wanted to. Have white people in not. Asian people come in they. Just they're grown everything and so here's a little thanks him z. every. Once in a while you do make, us happy TMZ reached out to Aretha Franklin's nephew Tim. Franklin, to ask, them if.

About how Aretha letter to, who she is, today it was long winded rambling but. More importantly, of course it was all our self another Ethan Tim told teams. E.. Now Only are the Franklin's not mad but they believe Aretha herself, would not have been upset either while they didn't watch Madonna he didn't see it there point is. This Aretha as far bigger, than any kind, of tribute and her fans shouldn't be. So sensitive because she wouldn't have been How about a class wow response from the family add on kidding unlike Madonna saying you know Explaining He's in, supposedly you, know Brandon Jelena's people are in court right now signing think's going to.

I, I'm, I'm very happy that romantic comedies. Are you know making a comeback? I in. Just so much fun. I love. Love like the food porn shots. It makes me want to go visit China and. Yeah, I if I had any complaint about this movie, I would say that I think the first half of the movie kind of wax a intactness te or so. It kind of is like very much just like, oh, everything's going great, but second-half definitely makes up for that. But I'm sure if you're interested in seeing crazy rich agents, you probably saw it over the weekend. And the other thing I've been watching is better call Saul, which is now on AMC. It's as great as ever is. I just wanted to to say how great what's your name? The place, Kim Wexler maybe Christie, you know, her name. Scaping me, reassess, reassess Jorn. Yes, she's a phenomenal. I think she's actually the best part of that show. Yeah. Yeah. She's just so great met show that show is just like the best thing that is on television right now.

What have you been watching. I went to theater in top with black klansman over the weekend. And I came to an interesting place because as magic interests, last film I had edited if you spoil their field articles about this movie before I got to see it. And so I went into this movie with two articles in mind, one by Candice, Federick and one by trae man gum to our freelancers, both who had very different opinions about both. We're poaching the film as black Americans and both had very divergent opinions on who was four and how presented itself. And so I went in really prepared to be torn bomb in in both directions by end up loving it. He loves a a, a tough wardrobe movie that is kind of as unforgiving as this one is. And people talked about this before already. So I don't want to dwell on black klansman too much, but to say, I thought it was excellent. I saw ten thirty in the morning and the people around me what it's like shell shocked in crying..

"Really excited to be joined by Jon m CHU, John, thanks for coming in. Thanks for having me John. You have this historic movie crazy, rich Asians, and you've been talking about how stork the movie is for a long time, and I want to talk about that a little bit here, but before we do that, I want to talk about Jon CHU the filmmaker, and I think you were an interesting moment in your career before this movie came along, and I kind of wanted to talk to you a little bit about where you find yourself and how you were thinking about making decisions because you had made a few sequels you had made obviously this very successful Justin Bieber documentary film. Where did you think you were going to go before? Crazy rotations came along. I think I didn't know that was the issue. I think I was. I was very blessed getting into the business. I didn't. I got right in from college. I'd never done commercial or music video. I didn't build at only been on a couple of sets and my own set an in school was just student. So I all these years getting thrown into the studio world, not independent world, like literally studio world for last ten year that my eighth movie. In ten years, you have to learn on the job. And I think as an artist, you have to go through the ups and downs of being an artist before you know who you fully are and what you want to say. And I was young, I started. I got into the business twenty two twenty three years old. My first movie by twenty six, twenty seven. How did that happen? The happened Steven Spielberg's told my short fill. I had a short musical at USC and it got out there was no internet at that time. I mean, there's internet, but there was no YouTube or anything like that. So it was through DVD. VHS got passed along and reached him, and he called me one day the same week that Dawson's creek ended in Dawson gets a call from Steven Spielberg. I remember that because I, this is really weird because he's in his office and he gets a call from him. So how'd you always related to me and my and pacey and yeah. Now I so so it was very interesting growing up as a filmmaker in the studio world, and you feel lucky just to be there and you're just trying to stay alive you trying to swim. And luckily my movies were working and you know, they've made over a billion dollars for companies and I didn't get any of that, but I got a little bit enough to survive and have a good life. My friend, my my very close friend, she would always say to me, he, you know, John, you really lucky you have like, you're very, you're very issues on equity talking by. She's like, well, you're like, people know you, but you're like famous ish movies are really part. They make a lot of money, but you're like they're like popular ish and I'm like, what like not? That is thing to say to a president? No, you it's great. You're like under the radar, but you're like, right in the middle. I don't know what to take. So I some point. I was definitely that got in my head and I was like, what am I doing? Like? What am I contributing to a medium that I love. That I fell in love with what our movies to me, and if I'm not pushing anything, if I'm not adding value of why I should be in this business, then this is not going to last very long and what an and who am I as a human being. And now I'm thirty eight and getting married and having a baby and all these things to about what I wanna pass on. And and so I decided to go after something that really scared me, especially after gem in the hologram which nobody saw, but I'm very proud of the movie and movie. I, I agree not everybody agrees, but I agree. And at that time when you go through that, when nobody goes, literally nobody cesium who've e, you have to look at yourself and see, why am I doing this? Why do I feel so sad about that?.

Yang, to, I, don't. Want to miss These from Silicon Valley Oh Jin Yang All right he has. Like, that. Guy Yeah He's. Awesome So bring your v, your? Vietnamese correct that. Is, correct yes Guys American born on the fourth of July, Christie, you're Japanese American born. In the beautiful town of Hayward. California Bryn you're also, Asian I am Asian from Asia. Minor everyone born in Iran but, I'm? Considered Asian as. Well Brenta with. You, it's been twenty five years since a Hollywood film with, an, entirely Asian cast has. Had a major release how did you feel watching this, film one word I felt proud Only because. You know it's all Asian but the movie was good so exceeded my expectations and was like look at. Them go open up the doors for? The rest of us please Hey Kristie how. Did you feel watching it. I have to use that same word is as, proud and yeah to. Have Asian, Asian American in the lead for major. Motion picture was obviously? Is huge so was anxious and excited but I think in the end watching? The, movie it just exceeded expectations. So listen I'm going to go, off script here did it, bother you Christie or brand, that there were no Vietnamese or no, Japanese in this, film no I didn't notice that case you're pointing that. Out So is it only Chinese or is it? A, thought there were a few. Filipinos but no Japanese So This There is a female Chinese American NYU, professor and she falls in love with the Chinese Singaporean. Billionaire but because she's from the, US his family immediately can't stand. Her they'll welcome She's? Not I guess Chinese enough Chinese. Chinese-American, so Cristiano, you married a white guy and Bryn bridge living in San with a Chinese woman sure yeah was this relatable to you guys could you empathize with this Kristie I you know I think my, husband and I just had. So many life parallels and other areas just both being. Professional athletes living on the road and kind, of the same family values and that you know our. Families were very both accepting there, were no one discriminated against him. Or you Luckily no Always goodbye I could see how it'd. Be fun I mean in this one I think is just it's such a. Class, difference He's a billionaire Chaz. Very royalty almost so it's it was. Kind of that Okay so it wasn't, the it was. Just she wasn't rich enough for him Titled enough would you The the? Proper, oh blueblood, enough yeah Absolutely agree with that I think that Christie and, I both are American Asians using Americans and it seems more like it's. Not necessarily about culture in this, movie it's more about, the class level the economic class level and, he's a, super. Billionaire that comes from you know whatever and then she comes in and. She's? Just not worthy. Of, his mom? Right Right exactly. Right All right well let's get into, the? Actual. Film Christie brain, did you guys? Find crazy rich Asians a heart warming romantic comedy did Jon? CHU pull. It. Off. More than.

It would have a hundred percent on rotten tomatoes, yes. Let's now move over to Chrissy rich Asians, the filmmakers Jon CHU in the the, the writer of the book apparently turned down a giant payday from net flicks to go the actual then tell us about it. Yeah. So the Hollywood reporter has this really excellent cover story about the making of crazy crazy, rich Asians, which comes out later this month and Kevin Kwan who's the author who wrote the book on which the movie is based and John chew who's the director? They both sort of had the. It was basically their decision of how this movie was going to be seen by by audiences. And there were a bunch of different places that were sort of fighting for it. And ultimately it came down to one or brothers or Netflix and Netflix through in a green lit trilogy and huge like seven figure paydays for each of them and for like the the stakeholders. Basically if they were. To go with Netflix, but they ended up thinking that it was far more important for them instead of just getting rich like so rich that said that he could just move to an island and never work another day in his life. It was more important that instead of getting rich for them to actually create like a a normal theatrical experience for everyone to go see this movie and put these Asian American characters in this film in in a way where this is the first really big studio produced movie that is aimed on focused on a an Asian American cast in like twenty five years, which is kind of crazy to think about. So there's a lot riding on this film and you can read more about that in the piece. They have a bunch of quotes about basically like how they came to cast a bunch of different people and how important it was for them to actually make sure that this movie, you know, got into actual theaters instead of just people sitting on the couch and pressing a button to watch it on Netflix. But yeah, it's it's kind of interest. You know, going through and seeing their thought process and realizing how you know what they valued in terms of the story. And I'm sure that you know this movie. I hope it does tremendously well at the box office because that would mean that it would sort of be added to that pile of films like Black Panther and get out and tons of others.

I mean, I think that a lot of the reason that they would rather have a theatrical release is even if people are seeing less movies in theaters, it's still has a broader impact than it would have on Netflix, where a lot of times these are kind of a dumped there. If they earn ten for thatch police in. Originally, and it still has the sort of reputation as being kind of direct to video..
