The Beatles-themed movie Yesterday is now out on home video, and UCR is teaming up with Universal Pictures Home Entertainment to give one lucky fan a prize pack consisting of the Blu-ray/DVD combo, a copy of its soundtrack on vinyl and a portable record player.
Yesterday tells the story of Jack Malik, a struggling musician who, after an unexplained global phenomenon, is the only person who remembers the music of the Beatles. He becomes an overnight sensation after passing them off as his own, even as it affects his relationship with his friend and manager Elle (Lily James).
In addition to the movie, the Blu-ray/DVD adds a commentary track by director Danny Boyle and screenwriter Richard Curtis and more than 35 minutes of bonus footage, including an alternate opening and ending, 12 deleted scenes, a gag reel, clips of Patel recording at Abbey Road Studios and other features. The soundtrack contains Patel’s renditions of 19 Beatles songs — including the title track, “Let It Be,” “Help!” and “Something” — and seven selections from David Pemberton’s score.
Yesterday even earned a thumbs-up from Paul McCartney, who recently revealed that he and his wife saw it in a theater, where they sat in the back row and dressed in a way so as not to be recognized.
“Well, it was a pretty good plug for me,” he joked. “I thought it was a nice movie.”
