Crossing the Streams is Easier with Everything Everywhere All At Once Going Digital Today!

7 Jun

Available on Apple, Google Play and Amazon Prime
Home Video Release July 5th, 2022

Infinity may feel finite temporarily, but Michelle Yeoh’s Everything Everywhere All At Once is on VOD! The home release will arrive a month later to really spread the love for this well-made martial arts sci-fi comedy, and our movie review can be found here.

But for who can’t wait, this treat is looking like it’s best viewed on the Apple TV service. There’s a blooper reel that’s as hilarious as the hijinks that went on in the film.

A lot of comparisons have been said already concering a Marvel product, but in terms of which multiverse makes more sense, I’d say this work has an edge.

Her controlling nature earned her a reputation, and when she realizes she’s at her twilight, something has to change. After reading a death notice in a newspaper, she visits the office and recruits a 20-something writer Anne Sherman (Amanda Seyfried) to pen her obituary. Her job at the newspaper is not a glorious one, but as a droll obit writer, it pays the bills. Lauler wants to be positively remembered and Sherman has her work cut out for her.
