Ron Howard's Beatle movie

June 20, 2016

There's always more to learn about the Beatles.

I've been a Beatle fan since I was around 15. I was too young to appreciate the band when Beatlemania first happened, but I got hooked in the mid-1970s. I've read lots of books and articles about my favorite band. I've watched the Beatles Anthology more than once, and still cry every time I watch that John Lennon Imagine documentary. I've even been to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame to check out their Beatle stuff.

But it's not enough. It's never enough.

That's why I was so excited to hear that Ron Howard is making a Beatles documentary about their touring years, from 1962-1966, called Eight Days A Week: The Touring Years.

Howard had full cooperation from Paul and Ringo, as well as Yoko Ono and Olivia Harrison. He's promising rare and never before seen footage. According to a press release, the movie "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."

The movie will premiere in theatres September 16th, and after that will be streaming on Hulu.
