New poster and trailer for Get Back documentary series
Yesterday, The Beatles published this new poster and Disney+ published a new trailer for the upcoming documentary series “The Beatles: Get Back”.
Paul McCartney screened a 100-minute version of the documentary for his friends recently (according to The New Yorker), wonder if that was the version originally intended for cinema screenings? Perhaps to be theatrically screened some time in the future?
The TV documentary series is three episodes, lasting two hours each. Fun things we observed in the new trailer: Their old manager and booking agent Allan Williams is visiting, he wanted to discuss an old record from Hamburg he had, of the John, Paul and George from the Beatles with Ringo from the Hurricanes backing singer Lu Walters on Gerschwin’s “Summertime”. Shortly after having discussed the record with The Fabs, Williams lost the only copy of it. New to us also footage of Paul and Ringo examining the Apple rooftop a couple of days before the concert.
Make sure also to read the new NME interview with Giles Martin about the 2021 mix “Let It Be”, McCartney requested to lower the volume of a harp….
A comparison of footage from a “1” teaser from 2015, shows that in the new trailer, a so-called “Ricky Martin/Zak Efron” filter has been applied, see comparison below:
