Trailer for Danny Boyle's Charming Beatles-Inspired Musical Rom-Com YESTERDAY
Today we have a treat for you with the trailer for Danny Boyle’s incredibly good-looking latest film, Yesterday. The main character, played by Himesh Patel (best known for his role in the popular British soap opera EastEnders), is in an accident on a night that the whole world loses electricity, and when he wakes up, he realizes that he is the only person on earth who knows who The Beatles are. So he begins to pass off their songs as his own, and his singing/songwriting career takes off as if… well, as if he were The Beatles.
His girlfriend is played by the charming Lily James (Baby Driver, Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again), with Ana de Armas (Blade Runner 2049), Kate McKinnon (SNL, Ghostbusters), LaMorne Morris (New Girl), and Ed Sheeran. The story was written by Jack Barth, and the screenplay was adapted by Richard Curtis, who wrote Love, Actually, and my favorite movie, About Time, so I am incredibly excited. This is such a fun concept, and it looks like it was executed so well.
Watch the trailer below and go see Yesterday when it comes to theaters on June 28, 2019.
