The multiverse isn’t just for Marvel and DC movies any more. But thanks to the heavy-hitting comic book franchises doing all the work of explaining the concept to audiences, there’s now room for other movies to tap it. In the new trailer for A24’s Everything Everywhere All at Once, Michelle Yeoh plays an otherwise average woman (that’s a stretch!) who must save the multiverse using all the skills and knowledge of every possible version of herself. Fellow Hong Kong action movie alumnus Jet Li had a similar adventure in 2001’s The One, except he was trying to kill all his variants.
Oh, and Indiana Jones’ former Short Round, Ke Huy Quan, plays a major role too. The movie comes from Swiss Army Man codirectors Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert, collectively known as Daniels. And it also costars Jamie Lee Curtis and James Hong. Check it out in the trailer below:

Yeoh is no stranger to playing multiple versions of herself. She portrayed at least two versions of her Star Trek: Discovery character Philippa Georgiou. But fans who know her only from more recent character work might be about to see her ass-kicking background kick in, big-time. Yeoh has been everywhere lately, entering the MCU in Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, joining The Witcher prequel, and signing on for James Cameron’s Avatar sequels. So in a way, she already can lay claim to the title of hero of many universes.
Everything Everywhere All at Once will open this year’s SXSW festival on March 11. A wider release follows on March 22.
