'The Beatles: Get Back - The Rooftop Concert' in IMAX Official Trailer
"The boys are ready for action!" Disney revealed another short new trailer for The Beatles: Get Back - The Rooftop Concert, a special one-hour cut of the epic documentary, that will be playing exclusively in IMAX theaters. This version focuses on the final part of the 4-hour doc series by Peter Jackson, when they come together for their concert performed on the rooftop in London. The doc film features in-studio footage that was shot in early 1969 for their 1970 film Let It Be. "Made entirely from never-before-seen, restored footage, it provides the most intimate and honest glimpse into the creative process and relationship between John, Paul, George, and Ringo ever filmed." The full docuseries debuted on Disney+ back in November, and most people have probably already seen it by now. But have you seen the perform in IMAX?! If not, now is your chance! Your one-and-only chance to go see The Beatles bigger than ever before. "I'm thrilled that the rooftop concert from The Beatles: Get Back is going to be experienced in IMAX," Jackson states. "It's The Beatles' last concert, and it's the absolute perfect way to see and hear it." Yes indeed. Check out the preview.

Acclaimed filmmaker Peter Jackson’s The Beatles: Get Back is a unique cinematic experience that takes audiences back in time to The Beatles’ intimate recording sessions during a pivotal moment in music history. The film showcases the warmth, camaraderie and creative genius that defined the legacy of the iconic foursome. Shot in January 1969 and compiled from over 60 hours of unseen footage (filmed by Michael Lindsay-Hogg) and more than 150 hours of unheard audio, all of which has been brilliantly restored, The Beatles: Get Back is the story of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr as they plan their first live show in over two years and charts the writing and rehearsing of 14 new songs, originally intended for release on an accompanying live album. The Beatles: Get Back is directed by acclaimed New Zealand filmmaker Peter Jackson, director of the WWI documentary film They Shall Not Grow Old previously, as well as both the Lord of the Rings + The Hobbit trilogies, Dead Alive, Heavenly Creatures, The Frighteners, King Kong, and The Lovely Bones. It's presented by The Walt Disney Studios in association with Apple Corps Ltd. & WingNut Films. The full Get Back doc initially debuted last November - available now. The Rooftop Concert will play in IMAX theaters on January 30th, 2022. Who's watching?
