Marvel isn’t the only studio wading into the chaos of the multiverse. A24’s next big screen adventure will take viewers on a trip through infinite worlds. And it’ll do so with a hero people of every dimension can get behind, Michelle Yeoh. The first trailer for Everything Everywhere All At Once introduces the only hope for the entire universe and its many realms. A woman whose existence goes far beyond the mundane life she leads in one single reality.
This trailer gives off major Charlie Kaufman and Michel Gondry vibes. And that’s always a good thing. This first look at the film combines great visuals (some of those sets are works of art) with a unique take on a classic movie trope. Exploring who we could have been in another life is not a new idea. Doing so by living out your own infinite existence at the same time and drawing on each of those lives is a spin that already makes this entry in the genre feel different. Its veteran star certainly does too.
But the film actually comes from the co-writing and co-directing “Daniels.” That’s A24’s affectionate term for Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert. The movie follows “an aging Chinese immigrant” who finds herself in the most unlikely of journeys. She learns “she alone can save the world by exploring other universes connecting with the lives she could have led.” Good luck to all the alternate Michelle Yeohs in the multiverse though. Going to be tough to top the career she’s led in this one.
The film also features Stephanie Hsu, Ke Huy Quan, Jenny Slate, Harry Shum Jr., and James Hong. Along with Jamie Lee Curtis and that amazing wig. All those googly eyes play themselves.
Everything Everywhere All At Once comes to theaters next spring, March 25, 2022. Well, at least it does in this dimension. Check your own multiverse schedule for when it arrives in your world.
