Audiences at South By Southwest (SXSW) film festival in Austin, Texas recently received the first look at an exhilarating new sci-fi drama starring Michelle Yeoh that you need to put on your radar. Titled EVERYTHING EVERYWHERE ALL AT ONCE, the wildly original movie lives up to its name by overdelivering on plot, style, action, heart, humor, and unpredictable thrills. But it helps if you are remotely familiar with the concept of the multiverse, because EVERYTHING EVERYWHERE dives deep into it without too much of a crash course in the “how” and “why” of it all.

The multiverse most recently showed up as a plot device in Sony and Marvel Studios’ SPIDER-MAN: NO WAY HOME. In that blockbuster, different Spider-Men from parallel universes were able to cross over into the world occupied by Tom Holland, and assist him in taking down five of his nastiest foes. EVERYTHING EVERYWHERE ALL AT ONCE isn’t a comic book movie, but it’s still worthy of a trip to AMC Theatres to appreciate the full scope of the film. Here are three reasons why:

Everything Everywhere Shows Every Side Of The Multifaceted Michelle Yeoh

Michelle Yeoh has been a film industry icon for decades, starring in Oscar winners (CROUCHING TIGER, HIDDEN DRAGON), blockbuster franchise pictures (TOMORROW NEVER DIES, SHANG-CHI AND THE LEGEND OF THE TEN RINGS), and massive crowd pleasers such as CRAZY RICH ASIANS. But you have never seen a side of Yeoh like the one that carries this new feature.

As the film starts, Yeoh plays Evelyn, the overwhelmed co-owner of an extremely busy laundromat who juggles work and family issues, as well as an inquiry from the IRS. It’s during that financial inquisition that Evelyn learns that there’s a multiverse of “Evelyns” out there, reflecting alternate paths that the main character could have taken based on decisions she made in her life. Each time the movie shifts to explore the alternate Evelyns, Yeoh is given the chance to demonstrate her incredible versatility as a performer, leading to one of the most exhilarating turns you are likely to see this year.

The Film Puts Ke Huy Quan Back In The Spotlight

Ke Huy Quan was instrumental to a few of our formative childhood films. He starred opposite Harrison Ford in the thrilling sequel INDIANA JONES AND THE TEMPLE OF DOOM. And he was an original member of the treasure-seeking losers club THE GOONIES. Quan has stayed busy behind the scenes on various Hollywood films, serving as a stunt rigger on X-MEN while waiting for the right acting roles to surface.

EVERYTHING EVERYWHERE ALL AT ONCE is definitely one of those exciting roles. Ke Huy Quan is Evelyn’s husband, which means he has endless multiverse versions of himself. There’s a fight scene involving Quan in the middle of the movie that we will be talking about for the rest of this year, as well as for years to come.

Everything Everywhere Blends Sci-Fi And Action In Ways We Rarely See

Watching EVERYTHING EVERYWHERE was similar to seeing THE MATRIX for the first time in a theatre. You know that what you are watching unfold – from the way the story is being told to the big narrative swings being taken by co-directors Dan Kwan and Daniel Scheinert – is going to change how certain films are made for the immediate future. This is the type of film that will inspire filmmakers to try more, to push the envelope harder, leading to exciting visits to the movie theatres for years to come.

EVERYTHING EVERYWHERE ALL AT ONCE begins screening at AMC Theatres on March 25. But you can purchase advance tickets right now to ensure that you have your favorite seat at your theater of choice on opening weekend.
