Hadnt seen this complete and in such good quality before.

If Apple have more of this kind of footage in the vaults and show it complete then it could be an incredible release.

I took a quick look at that pic and thought, “The walrus was Paul…”.

Agreed – another project to get excited about.

Dying here. If you keep this up you may never hear from me again. 

Love it at 1:12 or so where Paul leaps away from the mikes like they’ve stung him. And George’s little dance at the end. heart

@AppleScruffJunior perhaps our resident language master can tell us what it says behind the stage? (I’ll give you a Georgey)

I sent it off to the lab and the results just came back, it says ‘Heineken Bier’, or ‘Heineken Beer’ in English, who must have been the sponsors for the show.

Thank you, @O Boogie, for bringing this information to us in the news thread. I figured we need the information here too.

I sure hope so. We’ve been discussing it on-and-off for over three years now. I think @meanmistermustard only had about 8,000 posts at that time.

Some time in Autumn I think. Would make sense to release it as near the 50th anniversary of Candlestick Park, the Beatles last paying concert, but will see.

Interestingly, the film was referred to in passing yesterday in a Variety article on Vivendi. It was not called The Beatles Live Project in the article:

As an example, Lupfer says UMG and Studiocanal are working on multiple projects rooted in the music arena, including the Ron Howard-directed “The Beatles: Eight Days A Week ” documentary.

No other mentions but it does seem it may have gained a title. I’d want to see it crop up in a few more places, but it’s the first time I’ve seen it referred to as anything but The Beatles Live Project or The Beatles Live. You’d think Variety has a reason for doing that.

Whatever it says about how near to completion the film is, Ron Howard has filmed an interview with Paul for the documentary within the last day or so.

Still got 4 months until the end of August? The film could be almost complete and all they need to do is add in some Paul interviews; he’s not said anything new Beatles-wise in an interview for a long time* so they probably know the words and just need something recent.

 

*Well not that I remember.

Pretty much my thoughts – as it’s been going through post-production, a few more questions/thoughts have occurred to him that he wanted Paul’s response to.

Fingers crossed.

Ron Howard’s Beatles Film to Launch Hulu Documentary Division

 

Ron Howard‘s upcoming Beatles film will be featured in Hulu Documentary Films, the streaming service’s newest division. Howard’s movie – working title The Beatles: Eight Days A Week – will debut in theaters and on Hulu this fall, Variety reports. The deal marks Hulu’s first exclusive documentary premiere following a theatrical run.

Eight Days A Week  focuses on the Beatles’ iconic early years between 1962 and 1966. It will feature rare and previously unseen footage. Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr , Yoko Ono and the late George Harrison ‘s wife Olivia Harrison are involved in the production. 

Imagine Entertainment’s Howard and Brian Grazer (Apollo 13) will produce with White Horse Pictures’ Nigel Sinclair (George Harrison: Living in the Material World) and Scott Pascucci. Jeff Jones and Jonathan Clyde of Beatles company Apple Corps will executive produce alongside Imagine ‘s Michael Rosenberg and White Horse’s Guy East and Nicholas Ferrall. Eight Days A Week is Howard’s second music documentary following 2013’s Jay-Z festival film Made in America. 

“We are going to be able to take the Super 8 footage that we found, that was all shot silent,” Howard told Rolling Stone in 2014. “We’ll not only be able to digitally repair a lot of that, but we’ve also been finding the original recordings. We can now sync it up and create a concert experience so immersive and so engaging, I believe you’re going to actually feel like you’re somewhere in the Sixties, seeing what it was like to be there, feeling it and hearing it. And as a film director, that’s a fantastic challenge.”

I’ve been waiting for this bloody film since it was first announced three years ago. I hope it’s worth the wait!

I have to believe it will be worth the wait. Ron Howard is a brilliant director and I am expecting his best effort.

Don’t prove me wrong, Opie!
