Who wants to see "Crazy Rich Asians" in English?

It's only playing in Switzerland in German, but apparently if we get enough people together they could do one showing in English in Zurich. No date yet, but I'd like to gauge the general interest.

Trailer here.

Sure.

(It's been years since I watched a chick film, so you might need to reserve a "snigger section" of seating.)

Re: Who wants to see "Crazy Rich Asians" in English?

Wait - is the general release in Switzerland dubbed rather than subtitled?

Say it ain't so...

(I hate dubbed movies, in any language. I want to see the film in the original language, even in languages I don't speak.)

Half the fun of Kevin Kwan's novels is the idiosyncratic dialog.

That aside, several friends and I are keen to see the film. It takes an act of doG and congress to pry me out of Schwyz and propel me into the Big Smoke, but a chance to see CRA in the original just might do it.

Do keep us updated.

(The books are hilarious, by the way. Hoping the film will live up to them.)

Re: Who wants to see "Crazy Rich Asians" in English?

Well it's interesting, because about a decade or so ago, most films shown in cinemas here were NOT dubbed. Somehow they seem to have gone back to dubbed movies like back in the days - not sure why.

Personally, I absolutely despise dubbed films and have not seen a single dubbed movie or show in close to 20 years. Not because I wouldn't understand, as I'm Swiss, but it just makes no sense to me as particularly in comedy, half the jokes get lost in translation anyway. I've been watching everything online forever.

That all aside, you sometimes can find movie showings in original language in Zurich and Basel, often they offer both - dubbed and non-dubbed. I did check about this particular movie, but you're right, it literally shows nowhere in English. Hard to believe, really, and I don't understand why.

I'd be interested in watching it (I've read the first book), though I don't live in Zurich and my ability to come there will depend on the exact date.

Re: Who wants to see "Crazy Rich Asians" in English?

I would be interested, can't believe its only German version. Was looking forward to catch this with my girlfriends as being Malaysian, it is an exciting movie for us..but I guess will have to make do with streaming online then.

Re: Who wants to see "Crazy Rich Asians" in English?

I was shocked when I saw this.
This was first chick-movie after a long time that I wanted to watch but on German - no way.
I'm in Bern so if you organize something here, I will come

We will be seeing them later today.

Alas, they are not rich, just crazy (my wife's daughter and niece).

Excellent!

So for the Luddites amongst us who are not on FB, is there a way to register interest?

Re: Who wants to see "Crazy Rich Asians" in English?

count me in.


I want the movie in English too!
I'm so annoyed that moves are now shown dubbed in Zurich.
It used to be all original-voice-track.

It is crazy. I never watched a dubbed movie while growing up in Zürich (besides of Disney movies when I was really young).

Apparently, nowadays, younger people below the age of 30 prefer(!) dubbed versions, they don't want to read Only around 40% of tickets were sold for original versions and the trend shows downwards.

I found one quote from a guy from Kitag cinemas:

Quote:
«Je komplexer und besser eine Geschichte, desto eher zieht sie ein Publikum an, das auf die Originalsprache Wert legt. Je simpler, desto eher läuft nur die Synchronfassung gut.»
Quote:
"The more complex and better a story, the more likely it is to attract an audience that values the original language. The simpler, the more likely only the dubbing works well. "
So maybe that explains why "Crazy rich Asians" is only shown in German

Good news! Looks like enough people complained to Warner Bros and they will be releasing it in several theatres in Zurich in English starting September 6th.

Re: Who wants to see "Crazy Rich Asians" in English?

That is very good news!

Does that mean the private screening posted on FB is off?

While my friends and I could make the private screening with some re-scheduling, the timing is unfortunate.

If there are other choices, I'll be thrilled.


Thanks for chasing this down, Alpenkuh.

Re: Who wants to see "Crazy Rich Asians" in English?

Just a quick update:

- I emailed and called Warner Brothers, and they have just informed me that 3 cinemas in Zurich have now decided to show CRA in Original Version, without subtitles, beginning this Thursday, and for about a week

- these are Arena Sihlcity, Abaton and Corso


Hope this helps.
