Everything Everywhere All At Once (2022, D: Kwan & Scheinert) S: Michelle Yeoh



The 2022 SXSW Film Festival has announced that “Everything Everywhere All at Once,” the new film from Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert, will open the 29th edition of the Austin, Texas, event on March 11. The festival is billing its opening night selection as “a hilarious and big-hearted sci-fi action adventure about an exhausted Chinese American woman who can’t seem to finish her taxes.” Michelle Yeoh stars in the lead role opposite an ensemble cast that includes Stephanie Hsu, Ke Huy Quan, James Hong, Jenny Slate, Harry Shum Jr., and Jamie Lee Curtis.

“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,” said Janet Pierson, Director of SXSW Film, in a statement. “Audiences are going to have their minds blown by this extraordinary feat of filmmaking.”

Kwan and Scheinert, known collectively as Daniels, dominated buzz at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival with their feature directorial debut “Swiss Army Man.” The film, starring Daniel Radcliffe and Paul Dano, won the filmmaking duo the festival’s Directing Award and led many in the industry to wonder how the hell they would follow-up their bold and unconventional debut. That wait has lasted over five years now.

The duo went their separate ways in the years that followed, with Scheinert making Sundance comedy “The Death of Dick Long” and helming an episode of Showtime’s “On Becoming a God in Central Florida” and Kwan directing an episode of “Legion.” The only shared credit the two have since “Swiss Army Man” is an episode of Awkwafina’s comedy series “Awkwafina Is Nora from Queens.” All of that brings us to “Everything Everywhere All at Once,” Daniels’ highly-anticipated second feature film. Plot specifics are remaining under wraps.

The Daniels first made a name for themselves as music video directors. Their viral music video for DJ Snake and Lil Jon’s single “Turn Down for What” has been viewed over one billion times on YouTube and won the SXSW 2015 Grand Jury Award for Music Videos. The duo previously won the SXSW Grand Jury Award for Music Videos in 2012 with their video for Battles’ “My Machines.”

Re: Everything Everywhere All At Once (2022, D: Kwan & Scheinert) S: Michelle Yeoh

I saw it about a year ago, and I'm proud to say that this was a rare film that just clicked immediately for me. I've been wanting something like this for a long time, in fact. Life is bizarre, life is depressing, relationships come and go and you're always wondering about how life could have turned out differently if you'd done X differently or if Y event never occurred. It connected with me on a spiritual level, not just in my anxieties about life and nature of the universe and destiny with my future wife snce we're poor, but also my love of the outlandish and possibilities of the cosmos and comics and sci-fi.

Life on this planet is so incredibly stupid. And I don't always mean that in a bad way. We have an obesity problem while a billion people go hungry. We watch little rectangles for fun and then go on other rectangles and talk about what we saw, then we go to sleep on a different rectangle. We turned wolves into French Bulldogs. We love round things and invented 101 ways to cook a root. We get satisfaction out of making stuff, even when it's not very good. We use violence as humor and spectacle and tragedy. And we never know who or where we'd be if a single thing turned out different, even as small as being a minute late (or early).

My fiancee and I watched this together in the theater. The ticket stub shortened the name of the film to "Everything". I put it in the ring box when I proposed. Now is that dumb/sweet/poetic or what? It's all of it.

"Of all the words of brush or pen, the saddest are: It might have been."

It's weird, I hadn't seen Short Round/Data in like decades until he was on that Goonies-lite Finding 'Ohana and now this. Cool though.

Ke Huy Kwan back doing acting? And a movie NOT set in the MCU multiverse? I’m here for this one.

I love A24 so much. Always making interesting films. Even when theyíre not great, still usually worth seeing.

I was looking forward to seeing this this weekend, but it looks like the 25th release isn't wide.

I live in a suburb of LA. Probably about 30 miles outside of it. With current gas prices and traffic, I can't afford to drive into LA to see it this weekend. I'll just wait until it expands closer to where I live.

Got lucky and caught this at a sneak last night in Denver. Seriously, this was THE most exciting theatrical experience I've had in years. Surprised the hell out of me. It's utterly hilarious, mind-bending in all the right ways, emotionally blindsiding ... It's also the PERFECT post-pandemic film. This movie is kind of a miracle. Maybe it's a matter of hitting my sense of humor and love of cinema exactly right, but I can pretty confidently tell you that it will be my favorite film of 2022.

Same, as the film is only playing in San Francisco.

The current cost of gas, bridge toll & parking will have me waiting this one out for a bit

The reviews for this are off the charts. It will probably never play near me.

But at least it feels like a movie that should be streaming/VOD fairly quickly. Iím guessing by the end of April/early May.

Sadly, stuff like this just doesnít make much money at the box office, no matter how great it is.

I am small town Midwest. Didnít even get Licorice Pizza until Feb. 11 or whatever it was. If wide means 2,000 screens, I might get one. If it means 750-1,000 thatís probably a no.

Our town lost half of its screens because a theater shut down before Covid. So now Marvel and Batman take up 80 percent of the screens.

Movie looks great though.
