‘Yesterday’ might not be as big a hit as the Beatles were, but the movie did better than expected on its opening weekend!
The movie, about a man who wakes up in a world in which the Beatles never existed, took third place with $17 million, exceeding the initial predictions of just $10 million. The total worldwide gross notched just below $25 million through Sunday.
Universal reportedly spent as much as $10 million just for the licensing rights to the Beatles songs used in the film.
Have you seen it? How was it? Even though it seems totally silly, I’m still really looking forward to seeing it!
