Default Yesterday - Beatles music film

Published on 12 Feb 2019

Genre: Feel-Good Comedy
Cast: Himesh Patel, Lily James, Kate McKinnon
Director: Danny Boyle
Writer: Richard Curtis
Producers: Tim Bevan, Eric Fellner, Bernie Bellew, Matthew James Wilkinson, Richard Curtis, Danny Boyle
Executive Producers: Nick Angel, Lee Brazier

Yesterday, everyone knew The Beatles. Today, only Jack remembers their songs. He’s about to become a very big deal. From Academy Award®-winning director Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire, Trainspotting, 28 Days Later) and Richard Curtis, the Oscar-nominated screenwriter of Four Weddings and a Funeral, Love Actually and Notting Hill, comes a rock-n-roll comedy about music, dreams, friendship, and the long and winding road that leads to the love of your life.

Jack Malik (Himesh Patel, BBC’s Eastenders) is a struggling singer-songwriter in a tiny English seaside town whose dreams of fame are rapidly fading, despite the fierce devotion and support of his childhood best friend, Ellie (Lily James, Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again). Then, after a freak bus accident during a mysterious global blackout, Jack wakes up to discover that The Beatles have never existed … and he finds himself with a very complicated problem, indeed.

Performing songs by the greatest band in history to a world that has never heard them, and with a little help from his steel-hearted American agent, Debra (Emmy winner Kate McKinnon), Jack’s fame explodes. But as his star rises, he risks losing Ellie — the one person who always believed in him. With the door between his old life and his new closing, Jack will need to get back to where he once belonged and prove that all you need is love.

Featuring new versions of The Beatles’ most beloved hits, Yesterday is produced by Working Title’s Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner (Love Actually, About A Boy, the Bridget Jones series) alongside Matthew James Wilkinson and Bernie Bellew. Curtis and Boyle also produce. Nick Angel and Lee Brazier serve as executive producers.

This is something I have daydreamed about haha - not exactly what happens in this film - but to go back in time and introduce the world to great songs.

That concept has sort of been done before, In the sitcom Goodnight Sweetheart. Gary Sparrow rips off a host of artists, predominantly The Beatles and passes it off as his own music.

I'll pass

I can't comprehend that there will be a time when people forget the Beatles. It'd be like people forgetting Mozart, such was their impact. Although, I like Richard Curtis's films and this'll probably be great.

I wonder if this is a Film that's better in execution rather than how it sounds in description.

It’s a Richard Curtis film so this will probably be brilliant.
