  ‘Crazy Rich Asians’ Scores Surprise Release in China  Warner Bros. summer hit Crazy Rich Asians has landed a lucrative release date in China, Asia’s richest box-office territory, after all.  After weeks of doubt, Chinese regulators revealed Monday that the film would open in the massive market Nov. 30.  When Warner Bros. failed to hear back from Beijing about the film’s fate over the summer, some analysts began to speculate that the rom-com had been rejected by the country’s censors over its very un-socialist celebration of decadence and ostentatious wealth.  Others closer to the market argued that the film might be caught up in a regulatory backlog caused by recent structural changes at China’s Film Bureau, the result of which was a more cautious and slower-moving approvals process.  Warner Bros., meanwhile, maintained that it had heard no final ruling and remained optimistic. The latter theory now appears to more closely fit the case.  In addition to Crazy Rich Asians, a slew of high-profile Hollywood studio titles learned of their China release dates Monday.  They include: Universal’s The House With a Clock in Its Walls opening Nov. 1; Disney’s The Nutcracker and the Four Realms bowing Nov. 2; Sony’s Venom on Nov. 11; Warner Bros.’ Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald on Nov. 16; Disney animation Ralph Breaks the Internet on Nov. 23; and Warner Bros.’ much-anticipated DC superhero title Aquaman on Dec. 7.
