Malaysia-born Hollywood actress Michelle Yeoh is starring in the new film Everything Everywhere All At Once as multiple characters, including a mom.
The action movie set to release at the Texas-based SXSW Film Festival in March revolves around the 59-year-old’s character Evelyn Wang, who works at a laundromat and struggles to pay her taxes on most days while fighting an evil force as she hurls through multiple dimensions and transforms into different versions of herself, including a glitzy celebrity, a kung-fu warrior, and a chef.
The movie also stars Harry Shum Jr., Jamie Lee Curtis, Stephanie Hsu, Ke Huy Quan, and James Hong. The film by Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert explores the concept of multiple realities. Googly eyes, representing multiple realities, are the ominous theme present throughout the trailer.
Fans excited to see Yeoh in yet another film – her seventh in just four years – celebrated her new role online.
“OMG this movie is going to be LIT and I cannot wait to watch this! Also, I’m super duper proud to see a Malaysian artist (Michelle Yeoh) THRIVING in the entertainment industry, what an inspiration!” Malaysian vlogger Ceddy Ang said this as he shared the trailer to his 38,000 fans.
“Michelle Yeoh got me INSPIRED. I know it’s about that time for the ‘new year, new me’ tweets, but seriously, I’m claiming my success with the fierceness of 10 thousand suns,” Twitter user NiaMalikaDixon said.
