The director probably doesn't realize that hundreds/thousands/millions of Beatlemaniacs will be carefully scrutinizing their film for Beatles references...a-hard-days-night-george-4

I am part of that percentage.

It also looks terribly predictable. I'm sure when I get to the end I'll be shaking my head with disgust at their unoriginality... hope they can prove me wrong.

This movie has scared me into thinking that I'm in a coma/have completely lost my mind and have dreamed up the beatles.

I think generally people don't go into comas together so it's probably safe to assume the Beatles exist paul-mccartney-thumb_gifa-hard-days-night-george-10

It's going to be uncomfortable for all Beatlemaniacs out there to see someone else taking the place of the Beatles.

Yes, it will probably be very hard not to hate this main character by the time the movie's through.

There's this book in my school library, 'The Girl Who Became A Beatle', and it has a very similar plot.

The plot has been done countless times before using all kinds of alternatives in place of the Beatles, tho there will no doubt be plenty of fan-fiction out there with the exact same scenario.

The first page Google brings up suggests the film has a 9.3 rating on IMDB tho if you click on the said rating you get taken to a 2017 film of the same name which is completely different. Maybe the 2019 film is trying to take the place of the 2017 film and only if enough people remember the initial film will it all be corrected.

I thought Yoko was the girl who became a Beatle.

One thing i wonder is what prevented The Beatles from existing in this universe, did they all die as children, choose different paths, did they exist but didn't get far, or is this like A National Acrobat where they simply weren't conceived.

Anyways, i hope they go beyond their hits. It'd be awesome if deep cuts like Savoy Truffle and For No One made it into the film. It'd also be cool if the guy played songs The Beatles covered like A Taste Of Honey and Till There Was You .

I think it would be awesome if the ending was him playing Twist And Shout , which people recognize as The Four Tops song and start labeling him as a rip off and start throwing mutant tomatoes which latch onto him, eating through his flesh, only for him to wake up from his coma and to hear Hey Jude on the radio, realizing that it was just a dream.

It'd be cool to see how different the future is without The Beatles. Sadly, considering Ed Sheeran and Coldplay are in the film (2 very Beatles influenced acts), they really didn't try hard since in actuality, The Beatles saved rock music so without them, we'd likely be listening to electronic jazz.

I assume they didn't exist at all, but who knows what these people were thinking mccartney-shrug_01_gif

I agree about the first part but as for covers, this guy is pretending to have written a bunch of brilliant songs and even if the Beatles didn't exist, those songs still would, so people would know he hadn't written them.

I think it would be awesome if the ending was him playing Twist And Shout , which people recognize as The Four Tops song and start labeling him as a rip off and start throwing mutant tomatoes which latch onto him, eating through his flesh, only for him to wake up from his coma and to hear Hey Jude on the radio, realizing that it was just a dream.

Oh...kay. That's, um, specific. Also, that "it was only a dream" ending is such an overused cliché, I despise it.

It'd be cool to see how different the future is without The Beatles. Sadly, considering Ed Sheeran and Coldplay are in the film (2 very Beatles influenced acts), they really didn't try hard since in actuality, The Beatles saved rock music so without them, we'd likely be listening to electronic jazz.
