Everything, Everywhere, All at Once Grossed $100 Million Worldwide
As far as top-earning territories go outside of the United States, they include the UK ($6.2 million), the Canadian provinces of Alberta and British Columbia ($5.1 million), Australia ($4.5 million), Russia ($2.4 million), Taiwan ($2.3 million), Mexico ($2 million), and Hong Kong ($1.7 million).
Adam Sandler’s anxiety-inducing drama “Uncut Gems” and Ari Aster’s gruesome horror movie “Hereditary” were previously A24’s biggest North American and global releases, respectively, with $50 million and $79 million. Lady Bird ($78 million worldwide) starring Greta Gerwig and Barry Jenkins’ Oscar-winning “Moonlight” ($65 million) are also popular A24 films.
Even though “Everything Everywhere All at Once” has already been released on home entertainment platforms, ticket sales have continued to increase. Recently, A24 re-released the film, this time including eight minutes of deleted scenes and a message from the directors, in theatres across the country. Between Friday and Sunday, 1,490 theatres in North America grossed $650,000 on the film.
“Everything Everywhere All at Once” stars Michelle Yeoh as Evelyn Wang, a struggling laundromat owner who the IRS is auditing in the film directed by Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert. To avoid a catastrophic disaster, she discovers that she must connect with parallel universe versions of herself. Everything from bagels and hot dogs to fingers is used in the story. The cast includes Ke Huy Quan, Stephanie Hsu, James Hong, Jenny Slate, and Jamie Lee Curtis.
If “Everything Everywhere All at Once” is successful, it will be one of the few independent films to make money at the box office while the world is amid a pandemic. The film benefited from a platform release, which means it premiered in a limited number of theatres to raise initial buzz and gradually spread across the country.
“Everything, Everywhere” received a near-perfect 97 percent on Rotten Tomatoes, a site that rates movies. This is “the mind-bending metaverse movie you didn’t know you needed,” according to CNN’s Brian Lowry.
