WATCH: A world without The Beatles teased in ‘Yesterday’ trailer
Can you imagine a world that never got to know The Beatles?
One man gets to live in such a world. He also gets his shot at fame, all thanks to the non-existence of the Beatles
The movie tells the story of Jack Malik (played by newcomer Himesh Patel), who initially almost turned his back on his music career. His life suddenly changes when he gets hit by a bus during a worldwide power outage, and wakes up the next day to a world where The Beatles never existed.
Jack’s career suddenly turns around for the better; he gains fame and fortune for passing the band’s famous songs as his. While this happens, he risks losing Ellie (Lily James), the one person who believed in him from the start.
Also appearing in the movie are Kate McKinnon, television host James Corden and British singer Ed Sheeran.
“Yesterday” is directed by Danny Boyle, and will be released under Universal Pictures. The new musical comedy film will be shown in theaters on June 28 in the United States. JB
