The Beatles – Get Back is the latest documentary film from The Lord of the Rings director Peter Jackson.

Featuring footage of all four band members; John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr; The Beatles – Get Back presents in-studio footage of the band making music in early 1969 and more.

Additional key cast includes Yoko Ono, George Martin and Mal Evans.

Thanks to this well-edited ‘non-trailer,’ I can say that for the very first time, I’m genuinely interested in The Beatles and their music.

A change I can only really attribute to how the above video has opened the door to the bands’ personalities; plus the brotherhood and fun they seem to have had together while making music. I’ve always been a sucker for beautiful bromances/friendships.

I’m guessing that once I watch this film in August 2021, the answer to the question: ‘Can you name a single Beatles song?’ will no longer result in me pausing for a long time, only to then say: ‘Imagine.’ As most people know, Imagine is a John Lennon song, not a Beatles song.

What’s your relationship with The Beatles?

MORTAL ENGINES (2018): New Trailer From Peter Jackson Starring Hera Hilmar, Hugo Weaving, Jihae…

Directed by Christian Rivers, starring Hera Hilmar, Hugo Weaving and Jihae, Mortal Engines is an action / fantasy / sci-fi movie set many years after the ‘Sixty Minute War.’ A time when cities survive a now desolate Earth by moving around on giant wheels, attacking and devouring smaller towns to replenish their resources…

The concept for this movie which has Peter Jackson of The Lord Of The Rings trilogy involved as one of the screenwriters is definitely interesting. Nevertheless, there are just a few reasons why I find myself intrigued but not quite excited, yet.

One reason is the fact that I don’t really know the film’s star so I don’t have that prior connection. Another reason is we don’t get to see her face in this trailer so there’s that barrier to connection.  Last but absolutely not least, the idea of London, England my dear beloved city existing only on wheels is very unsettling to say the least.

Now that all my random thoughts have been aired, I’m quite sure that I’ll  get over my concerns enough to appreciate one more fearless screen heroine.

Joel Tobeck and Robert Sheehan also star.

Mortal Engines Release Dates: December 14th, 2018 (US & UK)…
