Spider-Man: No Way Home, Marvel’s first cinematic foray into the multiverse concept, currently dominates the box office and critical approval. In addition, DCs flash point Movie – equipped with a similar hook centered on the multiverse and nostalgic ace – is gearing up for release in the not-too-distant future. Let’s be honest; the multiverse is the next big idea in blockbuster movie making, whether we like it or not.
Movie fans who have grown tired of the endless procession of costumed heroes and cinematic gimmicks have learned to lean on the avant-garde production company A24 for experimental films that don’t skimp on quality. With a list of much loved movies like Ex machine, midsummer, and Uncut GemstonesA24 is seemingly the last bastion for die-hard cinephiles in a world of superheroes and reboots. However, given the look of their most recent trailer, A24 is trying to push its way into the bustling multiverse market.
In the psychedelic trailer, 1980s Hong Kong legend Michelle Yeoh stars as an ordinary woman defending the multiverse. While that may sound like the predictable ‘hero journey’ plot, the stunning visuals and special effects make this possibly one of A24’s most daring films from a production standpoint.
