Calling all fans of the Beatles!!! Ron Howard has created an authorized and, most definitely, highly anticipated documentary feature film about The Beatles called The Beatles: Eight Days A Week – The Touring Years. It features rare and exclusive footage with the full cooperation of Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Yoko Ono Lennon and Olivia Harrison.
Check out the first trailer above for your first sneak peek. Hulu will also exclusively stream the film to Hulu subscribers on September 17th and the US theatrical release is set for September 16th, 2016.
“We are going to be able to take the Super 8 footage that we found, that was all shot silent. We’ll not only be able to digitally repair a lot of that, but we’ve also been finding the original recordings. We can now sync it up and create a concert experience so immersive and so engaging, I believe you’re going to actually feel like you’re somewhere in the Sixties, seeing what it was like to be there, feeling it and hearing it. And as a film director, that’s a fantastic challenge.” -Ron Howard

Instead, they would be performing classic Beatles hits. Can we say, EPIC? Continue Reading
If you are a Beatles fan, like myself, then you’re definitely going to want to check out this new documentary. Good Ol’ Freda is the story of Freda Kelly who was the secretary of The Beatles from the beginning to the end!
She dishes all about her employers and friends in this film that premiered earlier this year at SXSW. Well, maybe not all…in the trailer she “passes” when asked if she dated any of them. Interesting! Take a look above!
