Yesterday - Danny Boyle

Recommended Posts

The trailer for this is just out, and it looks like a clever premise.

 

A struggling singer-songwriter bangs his head, and when he wakes up he lives in a world where the Beatles dont exist, but he still remembers all the songs. So he goes and 'writes' them all, claiming the credit. Trailer below:

 

 

Shame that Corden and Ed Sheeran are in it, mind. Hopefully only briefly.

I like how this assumes that people today would automatically recognise the brilliance of The Beatles Hey Jude instead of going "thats a really fucking annoying song, mate".

A masterclass in how to look permanently bewildered.

 

I hope the finale is him realising he's run out of emotional Beatles songs and has to perform Octopus's Garden at Wembley.

Parts of this were filmed here last summer (Great Yarmouth and Gorleston) including the big beach concert.

 

I'll watch it just so I can go "oh that's.... " all the time

Yeah, I'm in. I enjoyed Slumdog, 127 Hours and T2 but seems it's easy to be sniffy about Boyle. Thankfully Cordon is playing himself so I reckon he won't spoil it.

Bit bloody lucky for him that of all the bands the world could forget it was the Beatles.

 

”What's that you're humming?”

”It’s Barbie Girl by Aqua.”

”Who?”

”Ffffffuuuuuuuuuuu...”
