Imagine no Beatles – new movie “Yesterday” explores the dreams

“Yesterday”

Imagine if there were no Beatles.

Well, that’s a premise Oscar winning director Danny Boyle and Oscar nominated writer Richard Curtis have worked on their new film.

Jack Malik – Himesh Patel – is a struggling singer-songwriter. His dreams of stardom are rapidly fading in a small English seaside town.

His biggest fan is childhood best friend Ellie – Lily James.

But, after a freak electrical blackout, things turn for the better – or not – when Jack wakes up in a world where The Beatles have never existed.

Jack performs the band’s greatest songs to an unknowing audience – and quickly becomes a global star.

He’s helped along the way by Ed Sheeran, playing himself.

However, as Jack’s celebrity reaches dizzy heights, he’s in danger of losing Ellie, the one person who believed in him before his false fame.

Boyle – an Oscar winner with “Slumdog Millionaire” – informed the surviving members and widows of The Beatles about the project.

He said he received a “lovely reply” from Ringo.

It’s reported the film paid $10 million to feature The Beatles’ songs in Yesterday.

The film is due for release in the UK on June 28th 2019.
