Yesterday

Yesterday
Director: Danny Boyle
Writer: Richard Curtis
Cast: Himesh Patel, Lily James, Kate McKinnon, Ed Sheeran
Distributor: Universal Pictures
Rated PG-13 | Minutes: 157
Release Date: June 28, 2019

A world where The Beatles do not exist would be a strange one. But it is one small part of the entire premise of the fantastical romantic comedy Yesterday. Directed by Danny Boyle and written by Richard Curtis, the film explores such a world where only one man remembers the music of The Beatles, and how his life will dramatically change. But underneath such a simple premise lies a sweet love story and a quandary of what would happen if you had all that knowledge yet you knew that it wasn’t truly your work.

Though it may be narratively flawed by not fully exploring an interesting concept and plays it safe at times with the rom-com aspects, Yesterday relies on the direction of Boyle and Curtis’s script – though their voices may inadvertently clash at times – along with Lily James‘ cheery performance to carry the film all the way to end. My full review below.

Yesterday

There isn’t any doubt that The Beatles are the source of inspiration for many music artists today. From “Hey Jude” to “Yesterday” and “Here Comes The Sun” to “Let It Be,” these are just only a few of the many hits the British band has earned throughout their career.

But Danny Boyle‘s latest film, Yesterday, written by Richard Curtis (Love Actually, About Time), asks the question: what if The Beatles didn’t exist, and you were the only person who knew about them and their songs? Would you use that knowledge responsibly or would you use it to gain fame and fortune. That is what we can expect to see in the upcoming music comedy that stars Himesh Patel, Lily James, Kate McKinnon, and Ed Sheeran. Check out the trailer below.

Bond 25 Might Not Hit Release Date

Recently the currently untitled next James Bond film, known for now as Bond 25, took a huge blow in production as director Danny Boyle and the Bond production team split due to creative differences. Though there are a few rumors floating around about the reasons – which include not being able to agree on a cast – it’s not clear what happened between the two.

Now there is a much bigger issue. Without a director, the film cannot move forward with production. Which means that Bond 25 could miss its release date. More on the story below.

Danny Boyle No Longer Directing James Bond 25

Bond 25 is without a director. Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, the producers who have been overseeing the James Bond franchise since the ’90s, and star Daniel Craig have announced that Danny Boyle will no longer be directing the next film in the series.

According to them, they split over “creative differences.” A term that is often thrown out there whenever something like this happens. In any case, the lack of any sort of development for the film was very telling. Now Wilson and Broccoli will have to start over and look at replacements if they want to get production started soon. And please don’t suggest Christopher Nolan. But more on that a little later. Check out the full story below.

Michael Fassbender as Steve Jobs

Steve Jobs
Director: Danny Boyle
Screenwriter: Aaron Sorkin
Cast: Michael Fassbender, Kate Winslet, Seth Rogen, Jeff Daniels, Katherine Waterson, Michael Stuhlbarg, Sarah Snook, John Ortiz
Universal Pictures
Rated R | 121 Minutes
Release Date: October 9, 2015 LA & NY | October 23, 2015 Nationwide

When Steve Jobs was alive, it was hard to imagine a world without the inspirational inventor introducing us to one of his latest Apple product, yet somehow the tech giant’s legacy is still going strong four years after his passing. Jobs wasn’t exactly open about his life, thus making it hard to figure out the man behind the machines. Director Danny Boyle‘s Steve Jobs, from Aaron Sorkin outstanding screenplay adapted from the 2011 biography, as well as his own interviews, gives the world a way to get to know who Steve Jobs is, and how he saw the world.

Steve Jobs isn’t your traditional biopic. It’s broken into three major events in Jobs’ life all taking place 30 minutes in real time before the product launches of LISA, the NeXT, and iMac. And what makes it all captivating is the fact that in those three 30-minute pre-launches, we get to see a man who is clearly the smartest person in the room reveal himself to be a vulnerable yet headstrong man with a clear vision of bringing technology to the masses while creating a legacy that only a few could ever dream of.
