Eight Days a Week Trailer

"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.

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.

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

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.
