The best-reviewed movie of the decade still doesn't have an Irish release date

The early word on this movie has been nothing short of phenomenal.



Released in the States on 25 March, before expanding to over 2,000 screens (which is a great thing to happen for a relatively small movie) this weekend, if you're a mega-movie fan than chances are you're already well aware of Everything Everywhere All At Once.

But for those who might have missed out on the huge fandom this movie is already developing, let us catch you up.

Produced by the Russo Brothers (the guys behind Avengers: Infinity War and Endgame), and written and directed by Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert, collectively known as Daniels (who directed 2016's oddity Swiss Army Man, and also the bonkers music video for Lil Jon's 'Turn Down For What'), the first trailer for their new movie arrived a few months back and promptly blew everyone's minds...

The official synopsis for the movie is as follows:

"When an interdimensional rupture unravels reality, an unlikely hero must channel her newfound powers to fight bizarre and bewildering dangers from the multiverse as the fate of the world hangs in the balance."

While interdimensional ruptures do seem to be all the rage right now - see also: Spider-Man: No Way Home, Loki, the upcoming Flash movie, etc. - Everything Everywhere All At Once puts its own unique spin on it, by having the incredible Michelle Yeoh at the centre of the action, and seemingly using just as much influence from the likes of Michel Gondry and Charlie Kaufman as Marvel and DC.


The movie also features Jamie Lee Curtis, Jenny Slate, Stephanie Hsu, Ke Huy Quan, Harry Shum Jr., and the legendary James Hong, and upon release, has scored 97% on Rotten Tomatoes, and as one critic has pointed out, now has the joint-highest Rotten Tomatoes score of the last decade:

The movie has also found its fair share of famous supporters, including Kumail Nanjiani (star of Eternals, writer of The Big Sick), Neil Gaiman (creator of Sandman, Coraline and American Gods), and Rian Johnson (writer/director of Looper and Knives Out).



So even with all of this hype and love for the movie, there is still no set release date for Everything Everything All At Once for Ireland or the UK.

Distributors A24 do have a bit of a pattern of having big gaps between the release dates of their (admittedly, usually brilliant) movies in the States and then on this side of the pond, such as The Green Knight (July 2021 in the States, September 2021 over here), Zola (June 2021 in the States, August 2021 here), and Lady Bird (November 2017 in the States, February 2018 here).

Chances are, following that similar time frame, we could be getting the movie in cinemas here around June or July this year, and who knows, an official release date might have been announced by the time we click publish on the article.

But at the time of writing, the best-reviewed movie of the decade still doesn't have an Irish release date.
