Across the Universe musical (2007)

It is British-American musical came out on the big screens in 2007 and it is a romantic drama. It was fully based on a song by The Beatles called the same, “Across the Universe” and tells a story of two beloved. Julie Taymor is a director of this. She has also managed some major productions as The Lion King theatrical musical on Broadway (it is included now in the TOP-6 most successful and long-playing musicals of all times).

Columbia Pictures was chosen as distribution company – a huge conglomerate who really cares the best about the business and had to lead this motion picture to the brightest shining tops. Unfortunately, it never happened.

The motion picture’s plot revolves around The Beatles’ songs. Writers are Ian La Frenais and Dick Clement. And Elliot Goldenthal made the score. A plot summary includes as many as 34 songs by The Beatles that were written/arranged by the band’s participants.

Cameo actors’ list includes much more famous stars than ones actually in the movie. Bono, Joe Cocker, Salma Hayek – huge stars that participate here for several seconds or minutes.

Despite the Academy Award and Golden Globe nominations, the motion picture received mixed reviews and it is hard to say, whether lovers of The Beatles included this musical in their collections if it had such low box office.
