Must. Contain. Excitement.

October 8, 2010: Nowhere Boy is coming to theaters. It’s a film about a 15-year-old John Lennon. Yes, that John Lennon. I have to say, it looks pretty good, although it’s clear that it only covers his pre-Beatles career. Paul shows up in the trailer, and George is listed in the cast, but no Ringo.

The question is, will the inevitable follow? A full-length feature film about the most successful rock band in history? One can only hope, but it’s hard to imagine anyone could be capable of creating such a movie: Something that could actually live up to the hype that such an announcement would generate. In the meantime, we must be patient.
