Everything Everywhere All At Once has been nothing short of a phenomenon following its theatrical release last April. Now, almost a year later, the film’s plaudits have only increased, especially during Hollywood’s awards season when it has been the darling of many events. In light of this, Everything Everywhere All At Once is making a return to over 1,000 cinemas in the United States in what will be its third run since its original release.
The re-release was announced by Daniel Kwan, who is one-half of the film’s directing duo collectively known as Daniels. In a tweet posted to his Twitter account, Kwan stated that the chimeric film, which had elements of animation, martial arts, and science fiction, among others, will arrive in theaters on Friday, January 27.
EEAAO is going to be back in 1400 theaters nationwide tomorrow.
To all of the people who:
-regret missing it in theaters
-fell asleep watching it on an airplane
-accidentally left at “THE END”
-want to hate-watch the film Cats style with your friends
now is your chance!

He further stated that the re-release is for everyone who missed the film in one way or the other and would love a second opportunity to watch it in a cinema. He went on to imply that viewers’ narrations of their experiences seeing the film in the movie theaters persuaded them to re-release it, so that other people might share in that experience.
Over the year since its release, Everything Everywhere All At Once has received numerous accolades and the film holds a 95% Rotten Tomatoes rating. The film also performed well at the box office with $104 million against a $25 million budget. What’s more? It was one of the top ten films of 2022, according to the American Film Institute and the National Board of Review.
In addition to the 11 nominations at the 2023 Oscars, Michelle Yeoh and Ke Huy Quan won the Best Actress and Best Supporting Actor awards, respectively, at the 80th Golden Globe awards for their performance in Everything Everywhere All At Once. It also won five awards of the 14 it was nominated for at the Critics’ Choice awards, including Best Picture and Best Supporting Actor.
Given its performance, it's easy to understand why many people want another run at it in cinemas. For these people, the Daniels’ decision to re-release is the best possible decision. It remains to be seen whether there are enough of those fans to justify the re-release.
To capitalize on the film's success, its distributing company, A24, recently put the pet rocks in the scene involving Yeoh’s Evelyn and her daughter up for sale. The company did this to celebrate the film’s Oscar nominations and it quickly sold out. The pet rocks join a trio of other collectibles from the film that A24 is selling, including Googly Eyes and Hot Dog Finger Gloves.
Everything Everywhere All At Once is currently showing in cinemas across the country and fans who want another chance at seeing it on the big screen should check their local theater listings for where to watch it.
