First Trailer for Danny Boyle's Beatles-Inspired Musical Comedy 'Yesterday'

13 February 2019

From writer Richard Curtis (Notting Hill, Love Actually, About Time), the original concept for this movie is insane - one day everyone wakes up and the entire world has never heard of The Beatles.

On the strength of classic songs like "Let It Be", "Hey Jude" and of course, "Yesterday", the young musician rises to worldwide stardom and takes the musical adventure of a lifetime.

Check out the Yesterday trailer below. That's the basic premise of Danny Boyle's new film Yesterday, written by Richard Curtis, which features the music of the Fab Four. The official synopsis reads: "Yesterday, everyone knew The Beatles". Today, only Jack remembers their songs.

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 victor Kate McKinnon), Jack's fame explodes. Seeing an opportunity, Jack sets out to become the biggest songwriter of all time - by claiming all of the Beatles hits as his own. I'm very curious to see how that plays out.

Cinderella star Lily James plays Jack's love interest, who gets left behind in the ensuing madness, while real-life couple Sanjeev Bhaskar and Meera Syal play his parents. 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. "It's just been so long, there is no Beatles left really, particularly with John and George dead". The two surviving members of the Beatles, Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, are expected to make appearances in the June 28 release.
