Fans attended two sold out screenings in San Francisco Sunday for Everything Everywhere All at Once, the highly acclaimed movie starring Michelle Yeoh, James Hong, Ke Huy Quan and Stephanie Hsu.
The screenings produced jointly by AsAmNews and Gold House, thanks to a generous donation, attracted an enthusiastic crowd on Oscar Sunday.
Trudy Lei of Gold House informed the crowd that Yeoh had tested positive recently for COVID.
She asked those in attendance to give the star a shout out.
“We love you, Michelle, they screamed.
Lei promised to send the video to Yeoh along with tributes recorded at other recent screenings.
Randall Yip, founder & editor of the AsAmNews, thanked the crowd for their support of AAPI representation on the big screen.
The movie opened this weekend in limited release on just 10 screens in San Francisco, New York and Los Angeles and grossed a half million dollars or $50,965 per screen. That’s the biggest of the year so far.
According to Deadline, the movie expands to 30-50 screens next weekend before opening to a nationwide audience on April 8.
Everything Everywhere All at Once is also being shown on IMax screens, a first for A24.
This is the studio’s biggest release since Uncut Gems in 2019 in the pre-COVID days.
The movie features Yeoh as a mother trying to keep her family together while running an accounting business and dealing with the family laundry mat. The science fiction comedy takes the audience into a multiverse showing Yeoh’s different lives across the universe.
