This image popped up on the official Beatles website and on social media overnight:
It was accompanied by the words: “The Rooftop Concert is coming to @IMAX. Experience the unforgettable performance in a special 60-minute presentation of Peter Jackson’s docuseries in a one night event on January 30. Get tickets now: http://tickets.imax.com“
Reaction on social media has been angst that (initially) the film is only to be available in IMAX theatres in the United States:
Pls not only for the US! The Beatles are from Europe, this whole movie plays in London..
Nothing in the country they’re from and where this happened? 😦
US only?? Kinda rude tbh
Pls not only for the US! The Beatles are from Europe, this whole movie plays in London…..
Fantastic! Shame that it’s only in the US though…
But only in the US?! 🤔 you do realise the Beatles are English yeah? 😡
However, the real news was on the Beatles site:
1. That a global theatrical engagement for the 60-minute rooftop only film is to to follow in February 11-13, 2022
2. The complete docuseries is to be released on Blu-ray and DVD on February 8, 2022.
Now, that’s the first official confirmation that a Blu-ray and DVD will be made available to fans of the whole Peter Jackson The Beatles: Get Back film. However, the three-disc set will only feature the exact same content available to stream on Disney+. There’s no bonus features, no rooftop concert in full, no original-cut of Let It Be (which was promised when Get Back was announced).
