What’s your "Yesterday" song? Enter for a chance to win a guitar!
© 2019 Universal Studios
You know those bands that breeze through generations with ease? Know what makes them great? It’s that their music endures and even spearheads stylistic changes while fitting every mood. They’re the type of band whose catalog hits all your growth points – happy melodies for young tapping toes; grinding riffs for the don’t-tell-me-what-to-do years; heartfelt songs for settling into love; and those wistful ones that evoke the deep nostalgia of a long life lived.
Now, imagine a world where you’re the only one who remembers an epic catalog like that.
That’s the premise behind Yesterday, from Universal Pictures. Directed by Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire) and starring Himesh Patel, Kate McKinnon, and Ed Sheeran, Yesterday is the story of Jack, a guy who wakes up to find he’s the only one who remembers The Beatles. One thing leads to another and soon he’s an international superstar performing their songs as his own. Lucky? Not so fast — he struggles with the guilt of his newfound superpower. Crazy, right?
