The ultimate mash-up of Richard Curtis rom-com and The Beatles is heading to cinemas very soon but is there an end-credits scene to hang around for?
Yesterday is the latest work from writer Richard Curtis and director Danny Boyle and tells the fascinating if bizarre tale of a world without The Beatles.
We join Jack Malik, a struggling musician, on a meteoric rise to fame as he’s the only one on Earth who can remember the music of the fab four.
However, are we treated to a post-credits scene at the end of Yesterday?
Does Yesterday have an end-credits scene?
To put it simply, no, Yesterday does not have an extra scene once the credits have rolled.
Despite the craze in modern cinema (thanks Marvel) to have an extra scene or two during or after the credits, Danny Boyle’s Yesterday doesn’t include one which is unsurprising but, of course, disappointing.
But it’s well worth hanging around for the credits though, purely for the chance to hear Hey Jude on a cinema sound system which was certainly something.
Do any of The Beatles appear in Yesterday?
Some minor spoilers ahead
Despite being teased in the film’s trailers, neither Paul McCartney or Ringo Starr, the last surviving members of The Beatles, actually make an appearance in the film itself, which was incredibly disappointing.
It’s hinted in the trailers that the duo could have made a surprise cameo during Jack Malik’s interview with James Corden but this just turned out to be a very brief dream sequence.
However, one member of The Beatles, who no one was expecting to appear, did indeed make his way on screen, John Lennon.
See, rather than the world just forgetting about The Beatles, it takes place in a parallel universe almost, where the fab four never existed in the first place.
As a result, the likes of John Lennon never rose to fame and would never be shot dead in 1980, living to the ripe old age of 78 in the film.
It’s a very bizarre sequence and really does make the already bizarre concept even stranger.
When is Yesterday released?
Yesterday hits cinemas across the UK on Friday, June 28, 2019.
