[The following contains spoilers for Everything Everywhere All At Once. Like, all the way up to an important climactic scene near the end. If you haven’t seen it yet, you should just go see it.]
Directed by the duo Daniels Everything everywhere at once He’s coming home next week, on July 5th, and A24 amplified that by reviewing one of the deleted scenes a little early (courtesy diverse). The scene comes from towards the end of the movie, when Evelyn from Michelle Yeoh realizes that she can fight the nihilistic clouds of everything Gobu Tobaki has baked by empathizing with her attackers and finding what will make them happy in the multiverse.
It’s a very poignant and emotional sequence, as Daniels follows a few hours of increasingly bizarre martial arts action and the dark appeal of a bleak worldview through the mere presence of Evelyn. be nice to the angry multiverse versions of the cast of the film’s supporting characters.
But one supporting character who doesn’t get the same amount of time in the sympathy sequence is Jenny SlateThe laundromat (named in the credits as Debbie The Dog Mom) who previously reappeared (under the influence of Jobu Tupaki) uses her dog as a weapon. Debbie appears in this deleted scene, which only adds a minute or so to Evelyn’s “battle” on the steps of the IRS office to stop Gobu Tobaki (actually a multiverse version of her daughter Joy, played by Stephanie Hsu).
The deleted scene has unfinished effects and what we’ll assume was a placeholder image on the phone, but it does involve Evelyn revealing that Debbie has a young child asking her about a birthday party.
Not hugely impressive, especially considering there’s a lot of that sequence in the movie already, but more of it Everything everywhere at once is a good thing. Once again, it’ll be available on home video next week, and it’s already on digital services (and still in theaters, where it continues to perform). More money than any other A24 movie made domestically).
