One Key Everything Everywhere Universe Was Nearly Very Different

A key scene from Everything Everywhere All At Once was almost completely different, along with an entire universe. Everything Everywhere All At Once follows Evelyn Quan, a laundromat owner trying to make ends meet, as she discovers the reality of a dangerous multiverse and is forced to take measures to try to save it from absolute devastation. By combining her skills and experiences with alternate versions of herself, she manages to face off against a threat that she never saw herself as capable of challenging and proves herself a hero.

The reality of the Everything Everywhere All At Once multiverse is that it leaves the movie constantly jumping between alternate universes — with some being more chaotic than others. With entire universes entirely devoid of humans, there is even one location where life never took hold on Earth, and instead, the characters are mere rocks, sharing a few relaxing moments and laughing together. In an exclusive interview with Screen Rant, cinematographer Larkin Seiple revealed that the Rock Universe could have been very different had real-world filming circumstances changed even slightly. Check out Seiple’s quote below:

Everything Everywhere All At Once is a movie that features a remarkably fast pace with little time to stop, smell the roses, and consider the struggles of the characters emotionally and the reality of the entire multiverse potentially crumbling. With so many minute details, even the bagels and googly eyes have important meanings and can draw attention at any given moment. Yet the Rock Universe gives the movie a chance to pause, slow its pace, and let the characters catch their breath and consider their options. Instead of continuing the breakneck pace, characters can stop and think.

It’s a universe that encourages introspection and promotes a sheer and profound sense of empathy with the characters, as they stop, talks through their failings, and then learn to laugh them off and move on. The moment is the difference between a movie with such a harsh pace that it’s impossible to follow and a touching movie with significant action. The Rock Universe also shows a way that the Marvel Cinematic Universe misses the multiverse concept by showing that not every depicted universe needs to be essential. It grounds the multiverse by proving that not everything is consequential, and some universes are just piled rocks, which feels more realistic.

Everything Everywhere All At Once has good odds to win Best Picture at the Academy Awards. Though Top Gun: Maverick outearned the production and The Fabelmans is the favorite, there is no clear runaway victor, and Everything Everywhere All At Once did manage to take home the Best Picture award at the Critics Choice Awards, which is a great sign. While betting odds for the 2023 Oscars may not necessarily be in Everything Everywhere All At Once’s favor, there is still a serious chance. If it does win, Everything Everywhere All At Once will benefit from its cinematic beauty and the momentary lapse provided by the Rock Universe.
