Plot summary

What is Eternals movie plot?

Here is a short review of "Eternals" movie plot summary.

In 5000 BC, ten human-like Eternals from the planet Olympia are equipped with superpowers and sent by the Celestial Arishem (David Kaye) to Earth, where they are supposed to fight the invasive Deviants. Over the millennia, they protect humanity from the dangers posed by these creatures, but are not allowed to interfere in the development of the world's population. After the supposedly last Deviants are killed in 1500, there is a break within the group, as opinions differ about their responsibility towards the people. They spend the next five hundred years mostly separated from each other, waiting for Arishem to send them back to their home planet.
In the present day, Sersi (Gemma Chan) and Sprite (Lia McHugh) live together in London. After Sersi was left by her partner Ikaris (Richard Madden) over five hundred years earlier, she now has a relationship with Dane Whitman (Kit Harington), who works at the Natural History Museum. When the trio is attacked by the Deviant Kro one evening, Ikaris appears and chases the monster away. Sersi, Sprite, and Ikaris then decide to reunite all Eternals in order to be prepared for the renewed danger. Only Ajak (Salma Hayek) can no longer join the group as she was previously killed by a Deviant.
As the former leader of the group, Ajak gave Sersi the ability to communicate with Arishem. In a conversation with the Celestial, the latter reveals that the primary mission of the Eternals was not to fight the Deviants, but to prepare Earth for "The Emergence." Arishem explains that for millions of years, the Celestials have been planting their seeds in populated planets so that a new Celestial can be born from them. Since the energy of innumerable individuals is required for this, the Celestials sent the Deviants, to destroy the top predators of the planet and thus ensure the development of life. However, the Deviants evolved and became top predators themselves, which is why the Eternals were sent to fight them. As Arishem explains, Earth has now reached the necessary population so that the Emergence - the birth of the Celestial Tiamut and the resultant destruction of the planet - can take place.
