First Trailer for Ron Howard's New Beatles Doc 'Eight Days a Week'
"We had each other, and we brought that to the music." Imagine Entertainment + Apple Corp have unveiled the first official trailer for Ron Howard's documentary Eight Days a Week, profiling the touring years of the world famous band The Beatles. Directed by Ron Howard, the film will follow the band from their early days of The Cavern Club in Liverpool to their last concert at Candlestick Park in San Francisco in 1966. This is a rather short first trailer that gives us a quick tease of the footage that Howard and Co have rounded up. Everyone knows and loves The Beatles, and we've all seen lots of footage and so many films about them, hopefully this is something fresh with an inside look that hasn't been explored before. Check this out below.
Here's the first trailer for Ron Howard's documentary Eight Days a Week, found on YouTube:
Based on the first part of The Beatles' career (1962-1966) – the period in which they toured and captured the world’s acclaim. Ron Howard’s film will explore how John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr came together to become this extraordinary phenomenon, "The Beatles." It will explore their inner workings – how they made decisions, created their music and built their collective career together – all the while, exploring The Beatles' extraordinary and unique musical gifts and their remarkable, complementary personalities. The film will focus on the time period from the early Beatles’ journey in the days of The Cavern Club in Liverpool to their last concert at Candlestick Park in San Francisco in 1966. Eight Days a Week is directed by Ron Howard. Opens in theaters (+ Hulu) starting on September 16th.

Can't say I'm too interested in this film because I didn't really care for the band until Rubber Soul and even then not that much as we just played it a lot at my Sigma Chi frat parties so I didn't like sit and listen to it like I started to later with their music. It's when they quit touring and wearing those same haircuts and suits; when Revolver hit. Then Sgt. Pepper's. I was a Drill Sgt. in the Army when that came out and it saved my bacon; my sanity and kept me from going bonkers being in the military. Then Magical Mystery Tour and the great double The White Album and probably one of the best ever Abbey Road. Amazing stuff in such a short period of time. In the beginning with I want to hold your hand, etc...not so much...although there was some gems in there too.

All of their music is great, from Can't Buy Me Love, Yesterday and Help to Here Comes The Sun and Come Together.

Hard to argue with that as I'm a big Beatle fan. Always was when the whole Beatles vs. The Rolling Stones thing was going on. Still, like I said, I take a huge pass on all their touring stuff and the performances... all of them dressed the same...a bit dorky to me. Lennon admitted as such later. He was right, of course. I certainly do like all the songs you mentioned, Bruce. Thanks for the reply. Cheers....I still listen to them a lot, but much of it, as I said, is from Revolver on. It's my trip and I'll stick with it..lol..

I am a big fan of the pre-psychadelics era. I will tell my parents about this one. But I think I will pass.

We've seen so many films about the Beatles? No we haven't. We've seen films about them before they made it big but nothing about the Beatles in their heyday because of music rights. There have been three films about the Beach Boys telling the exact same story. A documentary about the Beatles is all we will probably get because a biopic would be too costly apparently.

I see nothing new, nothing that I don't know about it. And, they were before my time, Of course, I listened a lot of their music, hard to miss that, but I never really got hooked strongly. Anyway, if I catch it somewhere and sometimes, I might give a shot, but no, it doesn't seems to be interesting or revealing in any way. Besides, Ron Howard is, as far as I am concerned, very mediocre director so that's another disadvantage ...

I really want to see this one. They were a phenomena as no other band. They were unique. Nobody like them and I am not talking about music. I am talking about they they did inside of us to the whole world. I have always been one of the Beatle people. We can't even think about other bands because the other, though very good, were only bands. Beatles was and still are, much more than that. But not for everyone, of course. If a person didn't see the magic it is a waste of time to explain. I am sorry for them. But is still time because the Magic remains.
