Oscar-winning director, Danny Boyle, has dropped the trailer for his new film Yesterday, and the premise is completely unique.
Written by the writer of Love Actually, Richard Curtis, the story follows a failing musician, Jack, who gets hit by a bus and wakes in a world which is identical to the previous one, but megaband, The Beatles, never existed.
Jack takes this opportunity to start his own musical career by covering The Beatles classics like ‘Yesterday’, ‘Hey Jude’ and ‘Come Together’ and becomes a mega star.
Check out the trailer below:
It’s such an interesting concept, and no doubt the added genius of Danny Boyle, who previously brought us Slumdog Millionaire, will make this one movie to put on your ‘Must Watch’ list.
Fans on Twitter also agree, with many taking to the social media site to share their excitement.
Oh my god this looks amazing and they cast a South Asian as the LEAD, in a movie not about being South Asian, who all the girls are in love with. This. Is. Goddam. Progress. ?????? Oi Oi @HimeshJPatel ?????? https://t.co/c7MKjxbNSh

I found this movie trailer genuinely interesting. A struggling singer-songwriter suffers an accident and wakes up in a world where The Beatles never existed–so he starts “writing” their tunes to great acclaim.
