The multiverse adventure thus ousted, among other things, “Parasite”, “Come and See” or the first two “Godfather” films. But is the new film by Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert actually so Good? You will soon be able to convince yourself of this in the local cinemas: Everything Everywhere All At Once opens on April 28, 2022. Anyone who, after “Swiss Army Man”, knows for sure anyway that the upcoming films by the director duo known as “The Daniels” will always deserve a place on their own film shelf or wants to have such popular films at home on principle, can watch the film but even save it on Blu-ray now:
It will take a while before the thing is in your mailbox. The estimated start of sales is August 12, 2022.
“Everything Everywhere All At Once”: No chance for Spider-Man & Co.
The principle of the multiverse is not exactly new, not even in the cinema. But while films like “The One” (with Jet Li and Jason Statham, who still had hair at the time) were rather smiled at and are probably only something for genre omnivores, the literal globetrotter adventures are currently becoming a real phenomenon. The widely acclaimed “Spider-Man: No Way Home” just lured the masses into the cinemas and made it the 6th most successful film of all time. And with “Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness” (theatrical release: May 4, 2022), the next multiverse blockbuster from Marvel will soon be in the house.
But while Everything Everywhere All At Once will certainly lag behind the superhero adventures in terms of box office earnings, for many there is no question which film is the better in the end. In any case, DashFUN editor Björn describes “Everything Everywhere All At Once” in our review as the “best multiverse film that you can imagine” – and he is by no means alone.
And that’s what “Everything Everywhere All At Once” is all about: The life of laundromat owner Evelyn Wang (Michelle Yeoh, “Shang-Chi”) is haywire: she’s in trouble with taxes, has to organize her father’s (James Hong, “Big Trouble In Little China”) birthday party – and her husband Waymond (Ke Huy Quan, Shorty from “Indiana Jones 2”) doesn’t even get a chance to talk to her about a divorce. That her daughter Joy (Stephanie Hsu, “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”) is also a lesbian and wants to bring her friend to the celebrations, Evelyn does the rest.
Yes, if she has to admit one thing to herself, it’s that her life hasn’t turned out the way she once imagined. Ironically, on her way to her ruthless accountant (Jamie Lee Curtis, “Halloween”) but she comes to realize that she can easily change that. Because apparently, every single dimension of the universe depends on it…
