This took me by surprise but I just happened to play a trailer for an upcoming movie Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets (2017) and the accompanying music is "Because ". It's the original version with some added edits so it's surprising it got official approval.  I'm not too sure it fits in with the futuristic theme.

 

The trailer is here:

I don't think it fit. I the trailer was more about the wonder and amazement of the future it would work better.

Also, based on the trailer, I don't find the special effects to be really great on the aliens.

Sounds like bits of the song have been changed (not edited but musically changed). 

The film looks abysmal.

Doesn't Jacko's greedy family own the rights, or something? Just saw All You Need Is Love (silly pop version) used on a commercial a few days ago. Disgusting.

I feel like there hasn't been a lot of good movies lately.  Like sometimes I think 'It'd be fun to go to the movies,' then when I look at what's playing none of the movies sound good enough to go buy an overpriced ticket for.

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 besides having to put up with annoying people.

I think the song fit okay with the trailer, it made it seem not as same-old, same-old.

I think that the apple board (i.e Paul, Ringo, Yoko and Olivia) still have to give their consent for anyone to use Beatle songs.

Its down to Apple for using the actual Beatles recordings, they have to say yes. It's been happening more often as its in Apple's aims and objectives to get the younger audience into their music, which is fair enough.

This is one that I prefer the 'Anthology' version instead...  The a cappella mix is the best example of their works which demonstrates their unmatched prowess with 3-part harmony, in my opinion...  Absolutely Wonderful...:-)

The '82 remix is nice as it starts out only the harmonies with the instrumentation coming in at the end of "Love is old, love is new". Probably my favourite of them all.

It was most likely his Epiphone Casino as that was the only guitar he regularly used at the time and there's no evidence to suggest he used something else.

As a kid, my first exposure to this song was the Alice Cooper version in the 1978 film, Sgt. Pepper 's Lonely Hearts Club Band. I found it creepy and quite unsettling, and yet it intrigued me more than any song used in the film. In fact, most of my earliest memories of Beatles songs came from this film (I was 7 years old in 1978). I loved this movie as a kid. I recently saw it again for the first time in many, many years and realize what a travesty it is, not just as a movie, but performances of the Beatles songs as well (aside form Billy Preston's Get Back , and Robin Gibb performing Oh! Darling ). All these years later, I am still every bit as intrigued with Because (the Beatles version now, of course), and I consistently rank it in my top 10 Beatles songs.

What a great song

I had a great time with everyone here, but I have to leave it soon. I won't have a computer no more, only TV for cartoons. The computer will be going away to someone who needs it more. But I'll always have memories of my forum friends, who helped me open up the doors. Thank you for all of your support, you helped me, and I bet that I will always remember you guys, on this forum i'll never forget.
