Everything Everywhere All at Once goes where no A24 film has gone before.
Variety reports the mind-bending multiverse movie, directed by Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert, collectively known as Daniels, has eclipsed $100 million globally, a first for the studio behind the Oscar-winning films Moonlight and Lady Bird. The film has also earned $68.9 million domestically. It becomes A24’s highest-grossing title in the United States, surpassing the Adam Sandler-led Uncut Gems. Hereditary remains the studio’s most successful international earner with $79 million.
Everything Everywhere All at Once managed to push past the century mark, thanks to a re-release this weekend which included eight additional minutes of outtakes and a pre-recorded message from Daniels, who previously wrote and directed 2016’s Swiss Army Man.
The historic moment for A24 comes at a time where the overall domestic box office was quite underwhelming. DC League of Super-Pets earned $23 million in its debut week to take the weekend crown, per Variety. With a voice cast that includes Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, John Krasinski, Keanu Reeves, and more, Warner Bros. was hoping for a better return from the animated movie, which has a long way to go to match its $90 million budget.
Jordan Peele’s latest movie Nope fell to second with $18.5 million, a 58 percent decline from its opening weekend sum. It has earned $80.5 million domestically in its first 10 days, and appears to be in good shape to become Peele’s third straight film to push past $100 million in the United States.
