Everything, Everywhere, All At Once Becomes The First A24 Film To Hit $100 Million At The Box Office


Before “Everything Everywhere All At Once” came along, A24’s biggest hit was the dark horror “Hereditary,” which peaked at $80 million worldwide, followed by “Lady Bird” ($78 million) and Oscar-winning “Moonlight” ($65 million). And while it won’t bring the same numbers as the Wang family’s deeply relatable story of generational trauma, the independent film house also scored another hit this year with Dean Fleischer’s “Marcel the Shell With Shoes On.” Camp, an incredibly wholesome children’s film starring Jenny Slate’s viral internet sensation that has grossed $4,101,245 to date, according to box office mojo. Even before the releases of “Bodies Bodies Bodies”, “Funny Pages” and “Pearl”, A24 is having a hell of a year.

And honestly, “Everything Everywhere All At Once” deserves it. With everyone paying their hard-earned cash to quadruple the film’s $25 million production budget at this point, Michelle Yeoh finally gets the recognition she’s long deserved as a leading woman. Plus, having taken a long hiatus from the screen after roles in ‘The Goonies’ and ‘Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom’ which paved the way for Asian representation in American films, Ke Huy Quan proves that he still has his place in Hollywood after all these years. #Quanaissance.

Audiences open up to the difficult themes of family buried beneath the weird, wild, and sometimes goofy elements of this top-tier story. Even after all this success, I hope the hype train continues for this memorable gem of a movie for as long as possible and that it gets recognition during awards season as well.
