Everything Everywhere All At Once: Trailer Talk
After Marvel’s recent projects, and the upcoming ‘The Flash’ movie, it’s clear what the superhero genre is now focusing on: multiverses. However, distributor A24 and director/writers Dan Kwan and Daniel Scheinert (‘Swiss Army Man’, ‘Turn Down For What’ music video) have found a new way to execute the idea of the multiverse in media.
‘Everything Everywhere All At Once’ follows Evelyn (Michelle Yeoh – Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, Star Trek: Discovery), a seemingly normal worker who discovers that she can suddenly access multiple versions of herself via their memories and skills. With this newfound power, she must stop an evil force before it’s too late.
While this trailer was released last month, this is one that deserves a lot of attention. In an industry that is focusing on multiverses and sticking to the same formula in terms of its execution, this film decides to break away from the comic book genre and try something different, which is admirable. And because Evelyn can access her other versions and pick up their skills, it opens up the possibility of incorporating different worlds and even genres into the film; a snippet shown near the end gives a glimpse into an anime version!
‘Everything Everywhere All At Once’ shows that the multiverse idea can be executed in a unique way. Furthermore, it opens up the possibility of multiple genres being incorporated into the film. As well as talking about the latest blockbuster trailers, this feature can also be used to highlight films that fell under the radar, and this seems to be one of them. The film is released 25th March and I would recommend checking out the trailer, especially if you are a fan of multiverse stories.
