Monumental Pictures’ biggest stars, glamorous on-screen couple Lina Lamont and Don Lockwood, are also an off-screen couple if the trade papers and gossip columns are to be believed. Both perpetuate the public perception if only to please their adoring fans and bring people into the movie theaters.

by Ron Howard about The Beatles‘ career during their touring years from 1962 to 1966, from their performances at the Cavern Club in Liverpool to their final concert in San Francisco in 1966. The film was produced with the cooperation of Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and Beatle widows Yoko Ono and Olivia Harrison.

In the 1960s, the Beatles exploded on to the public scene, seemingly out of nowhere, as the band’s formative years of constant performing at home and in Hamburg, and Brian Epstein’s grooming, finally paid off beyond their wildest dreams. Accompanying new interviews of the remaining Beatles, their associates and fans, as well as archival interviews with the late Beatles, this film features footage of the heady concert years of 1963 to 66 when the band became a worldwide cultural phenomena. Furthermore, it also follows how the Fab Four began to change and grow while the excitement of Beatlemania began to sour and became something they needed to escape from.

The instant sibling rivalry must soon be put aside when Tim discovers that Boss Baby is actually a spy on a secret mission, and only he can help thwart a dastardly plot that involves an epic battle between puppies and babies.
