Known for his films like 28 Days Later and 28 Weeks Later, Danny Boyle imagines a different kind of post-apocalypse — one where The Beatles never existed. After a freak accident, the whole world has forgotten about John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr except Jack. Now, with the greatest band of all time's music in his back pocket, the struggling musician becomes a rock icon. Starring Himesh Patel, Lily James, Kate McKinnon, and Ed Sheeran, Yesterday comes to theaters June 28, 2019.
Director Alfonso Cuaron is a master of the long shot, delivering tense sequences that last minutes from one perspective and immersing the audience in the scene. From Children of Men to Gravity, Cuaron's signature style has delighted audiences. The Royal Ocean Film Society looks at how Cuaron stages his long shots and how they've changed modern moviemaking.
