Ron Howard’s The Beatles: Eight Days a Week Trailer


Although Ron Howard is not generally known for directing documentaries, he gave it a shot a few years ago with Made in America, a concert film focusing on Jay-Z’s music festival. Now he’s back with another musical doc tackling one of the biggest bands of all time. The Beatles: Eight Days a Week – The Touring Years mixes archival footage, concert footage and interviews both new and old to explore the rise of Beatlemania from the Fab Four’s perspective between 1962 and 1966. While it may seem hard to believe that there is something yet to be said about The Beatles, the film does feature some never before seen footage and it was made with the full co-operation of Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Yoko Ono and Olivia Harrison. Either way, I’m sure every self-respecting Beatles fan will want to check this out. The Beatles: Eight Days a Week hits theatres in the U.K. on Sept. 15th, the U.S. on Sept. 16th and will be available to stream on Hulu the following day. Check out the trailer after the jump and see what you think.
