WATCH: Trailer for Ron Howard’s Authorized Early-Era ‘Beatles’ Doc

Ron Howard’s authorized documentary about the early years of The Beatles secured a September release date and got a brand new trailer on Monday.

The Beatles: Eight Days a Week — The Touring Years will be released September 16 in select U.S. theaters and on streaming service Hulu the following day, the film’s producers announced Monday.

The film — directed by Howard and made with the help of surviving band members Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, and with the widows of John Lennon and George Harrison — will examine the band’s early success amid the British invasion of the early 1960s, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

The film makes its world premiere in London on September 15.
