The film has been savaged by critics, as well as coming under fire for its lack of racial diversity.
Director Cameron Crowe has responded to the backlash over the casting of Emma Stone as a part-Asian character in his latest film Aloha. The film and the director received substantial criticism online when it was found that Stone’s character, Captain Allison Ng, was a quarter Hawaiian and a quarter Chinese, leading the director to apologise for casting the actress.

Writing on his website The Uncool on Tuesday, Crowe offered a lengthly apology in a blog post titled ‘A Comment on Allison Ng’. “Thank you so much for all the impassioned comments regarding the casting of the wonderful Emma Stone in the part of Allison Ng,” the director wrote. “I have heard your words and your disappointment, and I offer you a heart-felt apology to all who felt this was an odd or misguided casting choice.”
Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson will certainly be this weekend’s box office champ after Bradley Cooper’s ‘Aloha’ bombs.
After taking a massive $18.2 million on Friday, including $3.1m after Thursday previews, earthquake disaster movie San Andreas, starring Dwayne Johnson, looks on course to take $48 million this weekend. The disaster flick is way ahead of Bradley Cooper rom-con Aloha which also opened this weekend and suffered dismal reviews from the critics.

According to Forbes, San Andreas crushed the competition on Friday and is now on course for a weekend debut as high as $48 million, with audiences giving the movie a resounding thumbs up. It seems US audiences can’t help but be enthralled by the idea of The Rock taking on an earthquake and the box office receipts will speak for themselves.
Following criticism towards the diversity of the cast after the trailer dropped and unfortunate reactions from the production team during the Sony Hacking Scandal, the stars of 'Aloha' are promoting the film.
'Aloha', the new film from Cameron Crowe ('Almost Famous', 'Jerry Maguire'), opens this weekend in North America, and arrives in cinemas amid controversy and middling reviews. The film stars Bradley Cooper as a military contractor sent to Hawaii, where he falls for Emma Stone's Air Force pilot.

Critics have called it charming but meandering and unfocussed. But the problems began at the end of last year, when the Sony hackers released a memo in which the studio's chair Amy Pascal wrote about the film: "I'm never starting a movie again when the script is this ridiculous.... It never not even once works."
