May God have mercy on all of our souls, Ron Howard is directing a Beatles documentary, like a real-life version of that Portlandia sketch about Beatles documentaries. It’s called The Beatles: Eight Days a Week — The Touring Years, and the clumsily-punctuated rock doc now has a teaser on the internet.
I’m making fun of it, but The Beatles: Eight Days a Week promises never-before-seen footage, and it was produced with the actual participation of surviving Beatles Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, as well as Yoko Ono Lennon and Olivia Harrison. And who knows? There may even be some Beatles music in the movie.
You can see the first teaser for The Beatles: Eight Days a Week –The Touring Years (presumably to be followed by The Drug Years and The Dead Years) below. The movie itself will get a theatrical release a day before its Hulu premiere on September 17th, 2016.
Here’s the trailer:
