The scariest ubiquitous scene is the opposite of what you'd expect
According to editor Paul Rogers, the scariest "everything" scene was the exact opposite of what viewers expected.
The scariest scene in Everything Everywhere All At Once is certainly a surprise. There are as many scary scenes in the movie as Everything Everywhere All At Once is about Evelyn Quan, a typical laundromat owner trying to travel through the world only to stumble across the horrors of the multiverse. After eliminating some serious threats, Kwon realizes his power and limitless potential.
However, the scariest scene in the film has nothing to do with the "everything at the same time" multiverse. In reality, it's nothing more than an emotional scene when Evelyn and her daughter Joy face off in the final quarrel. In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, editor Paul Rogers described it as the most intimidating scene in the film to date. Check out his words below:
“I know from watching the footage, that was emotionally a really tough scene for Stephanie and Michelle to shoot. They just let it all out, and it was incredibly emotional to watch the footage. I felt a huge amount of pressure to do right by what they had given us. [Sometimes a scene] loses something [in the final film]. And I was terrified of that happening with this scene... just making sure that I had done right by that scene.”
Can Everything Everywhere All At Once Win Big At The Oscars?
Everything Everywhere All At Once has already made waves at the Academy Awards with all of its nominations. It's a remarkable sign that the film has already won Best Picture at the Critics' Choice Movie Awards. Everything Everywhere All At Once even has great odds for the 2023 Oscars.
Already, Everything Everywhere All At Once Nominated for ten Academy Awards. These honors include Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actor, Best Supporting Actress, Best Original Screenplay, Best Original Score, Best Original Song, Best Costume Design and Best Film Editing . Winning just one would be an incredible achievement, and all of them at the same time are certainly capable of winning Best Picture.
Grossing over $100 million at the box office, Everything at the Same Time has become a huge success for A24. Its nomination alone is historic after star Michelle Yeoh became the first Asian to be nominated for Best Actress. However, at the Academy Awards ceremony on March 12, "Everything Everywhere All At Once" was already a big hit at the box office.
