LOS ANGELES – Phil Yu is excited. The Los Angeles-based blogger saw an advance screening months ago of “Crazy Rich Asians” and now the first Hollywood movie in 25 years with an all-Asian cast is about to arrive in theatres along with two other predominantly Asian films.
“I’ve been driving around town seeing posters for ‘Crazy Rich Asians’ and it gives me a real thrill. It’s like, Wow! Do white people feel like this all the time?” said Yu, who has been writing his Angry Asian Man blog since 2001.
