SHOW TRANSCRIPT

The summer blockbuster "Crazy Rich Asians" just secured a release date in China. 

According to multiple media outlets, the romantic comedy will hit theaters Nov. 30.

The movie's release in China was uncertain because the government controls what films are released in the country. "Crazy Rich Asians" depicts an exceedingly wealthy family, so movie experts weren't sure if the conservative government regulators would give it the go ahead.  

In the eight weeks since its U.S. release, "Crazy Rich Asians" has made over $171 million at the domestic box office. That makes it the sixth-highest-grossing romantic comedy of all time.
