Malaysian actor Michelle Yeoh is traveling through multiple dimensions in her new film “Everything Everywhere All at Once.”
Into the Michelle-verse: On Tuesday, independent entertainment company A24 released the first trailer of the mind-bending action thriller, which explores the concept of the multiverse (multiple universes).
- Yeoh stars as Evelyn Wang, a woman thrust across parallel universes with a mission to take on a “great evil.”
- After being flung across an office via a rolling chair, Wang’s universe cracks, transporting her into different dimensions.
- As she moves through alternate versions of herself (chef, celebrity and kung fu master), she is apparently able to use their skills and access their memories.
- She then comes across a version of her husband who informs her that she needs to put an end to an evil force wreaking havoc throughout the multiverse.

Something to look forward to: Scheduled to premiere in March next year at the SXSW Film Festival, “Everything Everywhere All at Once” stars Yeoh alongside an Asian-dominant cast, Deadline reported.
- The film’s star-studded cast includes Harry Shum Jr. (“Shadowhunters”), Stephanie Hsu (“Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings”), Ke Huy Quan (“The Goonies”), James Hong (“Blade Runner”) and Jamie Lee Curtis (“Halloween”).
- Yeoh, who recently starred in Marvel Studios’ “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings,” took to Instagram to share her excitement: “Cannot wait our family reunion and EEAO world premiere at @sxsw. What an amazing journey.”
So much love to our incredible cast and crew who happily went along with the bullshit. Can’t wait for you all to see the film.

- The film was helmed by filmmaking team Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert, the directing duo behind the 2016 surreal comedy-drama film “Swiss Army Man.” They share producing credits with Jonathan Wang, The Russo Brothers’ AGBO and A24.
- Kwan shared his excitement for the film on Twitter: “So much love to our incredible cast and crew … Can’t wait for you all to see the film.”
