As Rolling Stone reported Thursday: “A new trailer for Ron Howard’s forthcoming documentary on the Beatles, “The Beatles: Eight Days A Week – The Touring Years,” captures the band members worrying about the negative aspects of their rocketship rise to fame. In Ringo Starr’s words, “We can’t go on forever as four clean little mop-tops playing ‘She Loves You.’

“Howard’s movie promises to deliver new and enhanced footage from the Beatles’ live shows.

“We’ll not only be able to digitally repair [the Super 8 footage], but we’ve also been finding the original recordings,” he told Rolling Stone in 2014. “We can now sync it up and create a concert experience so immersive and so engaging, I believe you’re going to actually feel like you’re somewhere in the Sixties, seeing what it was like to be there, feeling it and hearing it.”
