Everything Everywhere All At Once is the arthouse flick that could after grossing $35 million in North America.
I will not shut up about Everything Everywhere All At Once. I haven’t since I watched it. The movie is exactly its title. I am also extremely sad I was not able to order a pair of hot dog finger gloves because as I was sharing the link, it sold out! The film starring Michelle Yeoh continues to impress critically and financially across the country and even added more IMAX showtimes across the board this past weekend. While its US theatrical run is already 6 weeks out, the movie shows no signs of slowing down, and its digital release is sure to only increase its already expectation-breaking performance. The film is also set to open in the UK this week.
Everything Everywhere All At Once Seems to Just Be Getting Started
Those who watch the film agree, Everything Everywhere All At Once is a masterpiece. The film has just grossed $35 Million just in North America. What is even more impressive is that it had a 0.04% jump in sales on Friday, April 29, 2022, compared to the previous week according to Forbes. This past weekend alone Variety reported the film added $5.5 million, with an overall 2% uptick from the previous week. That uptick can be credited to IMAX as that accounted for $850 thousand across 256 screens over the weekend. Not only do these numbers attest to the film’s greatness, but it also points to one thing according to David A. Gross of Franchise Entertainment Research
“There’s still plenty of room for well-produced, original, creatively-told stories on the big screen… Platforms have never been easy and I don’t think that will change — they will remain rare. But when a movie is compelling enough, audiences will find that movie and platforming works.”David A. Gross, Franchise Entertainment Research
Everything Everywhere All At Once cost $25 million to produce, so it will need to keep succeeding in order to be considered profitable. With advanced screenings coming to the UK this week, and the digital release coming on June 6, 2022, the film is likely to achieve profitability on a large scale. If all goes well, the film will surpass Adam Sandler’s Uncut Gems as A24’s highest-grossing movie in North America. Maybe even surpass A24’s biggest box office success, Hereditary, which grossed $79 million globally.
With Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness this week, ticket sales are likely to drop. However, it is possible -or a certainty in at least one scenario in the multiverse- that the massive marvel film will create a desire for more multiverse-based content and inspire the masses to check out the Everything Everywhere All At Once. Not only are the subject matters related, Everything Everywhere All At Once shares plenty of other threads with Marvel. Michelle Yeoh, Stephanie Hsu, and the brothers, Brian and Andy Le, were all in Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. Plus the film is produced by The Russo Brothers. The film has everything going for it everywhere and all at once.
Everything Everywhere All At Once is now playing in theaters across North America with special advanced screenings releasing this week in the UK. Tickets are available now.
