A Top-Secret Preview

Director Peter Jackson just gave a sneak peek into his upcoming film about The Beatles over the weekend. The seven-minute long preview was shown during the Universal Music showcase which has long been part of Grammy Weekend. According to Variety, the audience members were asked to avoid filming or even take photographs of the preview. Apple Records chief Jeff Jones said that the 1970 movie was a depressing look at The Fab Four on the verge of breaking up.

So they enlisted the help of Jackson to clean up “Let It Be” archival footage – similar to what he did with World War I clips on “They Shall Not Grow Old.”

Jones said, “We have created a brand-new film that will attempt to bust the myth that the ‘Let It Be’ sessions were the final nail in the Beatles’ coffin.”

And that’s exactly what they did. Variety noted that gone was the “murky, shadowy atmosphere” and instead, the documentary was “brighter both visually and spiritually.” Aside from videos of The Fab Four rehearsing songs for their iconic “Abbey Road” album, there are also clips of them joking and fooling around.

Peter Jackson’s Beatles project was announced a year ago. The title and release date are yet to be announced.
