If you are anything like me, you’re probably a little bored with most of what Hollywood produces these days. Yet every now and then, something original pops up. Check out the new trailer for Everything Everywhere All At Once from A24.
It starts off as a gentle comedy about a filling out taxes and ends with a multiverse that needs to be saved. I like the look of this sci-fi-action-comedy drama.
Everything Everywhere All At Once is directed by The Daniels, which I thought was a little pretentious at first, but it’s Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinart. These are the guys behind Swiss Army Man which, if you haven’t seen, I highly recommend as something funny, charming, and original.
It stars Michelle Yeah, Jenny Slate, Jamie Lee Curtis, James Hong, Stephanie Hsu, Ke Huy Quan and Harry Shum Jr. The official story is:
An aging Chinese immigrant is swept up in an insane adventure, where she alone can save the world by exploring other universes connecting with the lives she could have led.
Entertainment Weekly had a few more details about the movie:
“Chinese immigrant Evelyn Wang, the stressed-out manager of a failing Los Angeles laundromat. She has a strained relationship with her queer daughter, a floundering marriage with her husband, and is attempting to sort out her byzantine taxes on top of all that. If you think that sounds like the set-up for a well-meaning but dull family drama, you’re putting your coins into the wrong washing machine.
In the middle of an interview with IRS inspector Deirdre Beaubeirdra, Evelyn is enlisted to defeat an evil force that threatens an infinite number of universes.”
According to EW, Jamie Lee Curtis has some fight scenes that required wire work.
For me, the best news is it’s being produced by A24.
While some of the other bigger companies are producing Scream 6 and Halloween God Knows How Many Now, A24 don’t like the reboots, remakes, or spin-offs. Most of their stuff is completely original and I always love the fact that you never know what you are going to see from them.
In the past few years, they have produced movies like The Green Knight, Zola, Saint Maud, Uncut Gems, The Lighthouse, Midsommar, Lamb and Red Rocket. You get the idea. Not a single reboot in there, and all of them as different as you can imagine.
Everything Everywhere All At Once will be out on 25th March and I can’t wait.
