John, Paul, George, Ringo. Together these boys from Liverpool banded together to form one of the greatest rock bands in history – The Beatles. They have countless songs that are still good to jam to today – “Hey Jude”, “Eight Days A Week”, “Here Comes The Sun”, “Let It Be”, and so much more.
Now imagine if they never existed, and all their amazing songs were never heard of; that’s the dilemma that Jack Malik faces in the upcoming movie “Yesterday” (taken from another of The Beatles’ beloved songs).
Malik (played by Himesh Patel from BBC’s Eastenders) wakes up from an accident to find out that no one knows any Beatles songs, and he is the only one who remembers them.
From a struggling start as a singer, his fame skyrockets as he plays The Beatles’ hit songs (or are they his now?), but it opens up a personal conflict leading him to a decision to get back to where he once belonged and prove that “all you need is love”.
Co-starring Lily James (Cinderella, Baby Driver) and Kate McKinnon (Ghostbusters, Saturday Night Live), with a screenplay by Richard Curtis (Love Actually, Notting Hill) and direction by Academy Award winner Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire, Trainspotting, 28 Days Later), “Yesterday” will be released in Philippine cinemas on June 26.
