Marvel isn’t the only studio wading into the chaos of the multiverse.
The big-screen adventure, Everything Everywhere All At Once will take viewers on a trip through infinite worlds and Malaysian Hollywood star Michelle Yeoh is poised to portray multiple roles in the film.
According to Malay Mail, the movie is expected to be released at the Texas-based SXSW Film Festival in March next year.
Directed by Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert, the film is about “an ageing Chinese immigrant [who] 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 lived.”
Collectively known as Daniels, Kwan and Scheinert rose to fame directing music videos such as the landmark DJ Snake MV for the single, ‘Turn Down for What’, before releasing their first feature film – the oddly-sweet cult classic Swiss Army Man starring Daniel Radcliffe (as a farting corpse) and Paul Dano – in 2016.
“We are thrilled to premiere Daniels’ latest work, which is fantastically inventive, entertaining, emotionally grounded, and crammed with the exceptional creativity that makes their projects so satisfying. Audiences are going to have their minds blown by this extraordinary feat of filmmaking,” said Janet Pierson, Director of Film.
Yeoh’s character gets to discover multiple dimensions after learning her ability to morph into other versions of herself, including a kung-fu warrior, a chef, and a celebrity.
The cast also includes Harry Shum Jr., Jamie Lee Curtis, Stephanie Hsu, Ke Huy Quan, and James Hong.
That brief synopsis only hints at the vivid awesome fever dreams that this movie looks to explore with style and humour. Check out the trailer and see for yourself:
‘Everything Everywhere All At Once’ will be out in cinemas in the States on March 25, 2022. No details on its Malaysian release so far, but we’ll keep you posted as soon as we know!
