    Peter Jackson got a hold of 56 hours of "never seen before" Beatles footage, and is putting a movie together, with it. Scheduled for release in August of 2021. This is not a trailer, per se, but rather sneak peek at a few minutes of that footage.

    Yes...

    EDIT: I still don't really know how to do photos via the web interface, but that's a first-press of "Meet the Beatles", which was formerly hanging in my office. I also have "Rubber Soul" (and "Alice's Restaurant", which is decidedly not a Beatles song).

    Ha, I tried, but it wanted a link. I'd have to go from my phone, to imgur, to the website, and I lose patience with my phone fairly readily.

    Full size albums, at least! At my old office, I had those three on my wall, plus some original art my sister did for me, and a giant Banksy print.

    As an aside, I was mostly raised by my grandmother and she used to just park me in front of a record player with Beatles albums. "Love" is by far my favorite show in Vegas.

    When I was maybe 6 I asked my parents if I could start letting my hair grow long "like the Beatles" and they said yes. Then my 13 year old brother asked and they said yes to him also. That ticked me off, I wanted to be the lone Ringo or Paul in the family :)

    What's interesting to me is that my ex's mother, who grew up in China and was there back in the 60s, said she listened to The Beatles in secret because it was "incredibly subversive" to listen to rock and roll music. No cultural disrespect, but I can't even fathom that. I grew up on it! And their first single was literally about holding hands.

    I'm another big Beatles fan, so I'm looking forward to seeing this when it comes out. Of course, my parents hated the Beatles when they first came on the scene back in the '60s when we were kids. My older brother and I use to drive them crazy blasting their tunes on the radio and playing their records. LOL

    Needless to say, LOVE is also my favorite Cirque show and I lost count on how many times that I've seen it already.

    Hated the early Beatles. As time passed, and the complexity and message in the Beatles music improved like by light years, I came around, like way around.

    They were a truly unusual mix of rock, pop, and experimental. Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band was pure amazing madness, start to finish, with "A Day In The Life" as a fitting (and insane) coda.

    To an extent, they remind me a little of Lady Gaga's career trajectory. She started out with true pop, and there's a theory that it was part of her endgame to get famous enough to start doing the jazz music she always wanted to do. She had "Poker Face" and then later an album with Tony Bennett.

    NASA and the Beatles.

    Think about the progression of each in the short amount of time from 1964 - 1969.

    So....:" This is not a trailer. "
    However,
    The footage was ALL..... Abbey Road Studios - right near their demise.
    I'm wondering if the entire 56 hrs was of them recording in the studio - at that time ?
    .
    There were quotes from The Beatles - that their behavior toward each other
    was more civil when " guests " were in the studio.
    Plenty of guests in that footage.......and happy / fun Beatles, in the studio.
    Makes sense.
    " We were on our best behavior when guests were present . "
    .
    And the recording process ( itself )
    with the musicians grouped close together vs. ( nowadays ) in separate isolation booths.
    Ringo had a towel draped over his snare.....while playing in close - with the others.
    It muffles the loud trebly snap of the snare.......stops the ringing of the drum.........lowers the volume, at same time.
    I did the same thing when I played my drums in our family living room.

    BIG Beatles fan.:wave: In fact, most of my recent Vegas trips were specifically for Paul and Ringo concerts; last visit was in 2019 when Paul played two nights at T-Mobile. (I miss concerts :cry:) Am very much looking forward to the Peter Jackson film and seeing the unreleased Let It Be footage. The recording sessions were actually not filmed at Abbey Road Studios; they did some of it at Twickenham film studios and then moved to their basement studio at the Apple offices. Lots of the audio outtakes have been out there for years on bootlegs, but the video will be very interesting.

    and @44inarow, nice Meet The Beatles you have there, good way to frame it.

    Maybe. Hopefully there are more scenes from other periods of their career. But the name of the film is "Get Back", so perhaps he was simply trying to emphasize that, by showing scenes from that recording session.

    This is the remake of the Let It Be film. Trying to show happier time instead of the dreaded downer original. Wonder if the argueing between Paul and George will be in again.

    There might be footage of different arguments; there were lots of them during these sessions. I don't think there will be much, if anything, in this film about other periods of their career. Anyone who is interested in the early years of Beatlemania should check out Ron Howard's "Eight Days a Week," which is a great film about their touring days.
