Beatles Movie "Help!" To Be Released On Blu-ray

Beatles Movie "Help!" To Be Released On Blu-ray

The Beatles' second film is coming to Blu-ray.  The band's 1965 movie "Help!" is a complete work of fiction, featuring the Fab Four in their efforts to keep Ringo from an evil cult who wants to use him in a sacrifice ritual.  In a promotional clip for the upcoming release, director Richard Lester explains that they didn't want to simply make a color recreation of their first movie, "A Hard Day's Night," but were limited with what they could do in the quasi-biographical realm.
Actress Eleanor Bron, who played the high priestess Ahme in "Help!," adds that she thinks The Beatles like the idea of a fictional film, because they all wanted to act.  In addition to the film, the "Help!" Blu-ray also includes an hour of bonus material, including documentaries about making the film and the restoration process, memories from the cast and crew, the original trailer, and more.  The package also includes a booklet featuring an introduction from Lester as well as "an appreciation" by director Martin Scorsese.  The "Help!" Blu-ray will be in stores on June 25th.
