18th Tribeca Film Festival Announces Danny Boyle’s YESTERDAY As Closing Night Film

The Tribeca Film Festival has just announced that the world premiere of Yesterday, the highly anticipated film from Danny Boyle, will be the closing night film of the festival on May 4. The festival has also announced a slew of other events, including a never-before-seen restored version of Francis Ford Coppola’s cinematic masterpiece, Apocalypse Now, and the 30th anniversary and cast reunion of the iconic ‘80s coming-of-age film Say Anything….

Yesterday is directed by Boyle (Slumdog MillionareTrainspotting), written by Richard Curtis (Four Weddings and a FuneralLove Actually), and stars Himesh Patel, Lily James, Kate McKinnon, and Ed Sheeran. Waking up to discover that The Beatles never existed, Patel’s character finds himself in a complicated predicament. With the film sounding like a pure love letter to one of the greatest bands of all time, Boyle said “This isn’t a time travel movie but it feels like introducing the Beatles music to America for the first time-again.” The film officially releases on June 28, 2019.

The festival will also be celebrating the 40th anniversary of Coppola’s Apocalypse Now. For the first time ever, audiences will see Apocalypse Now: Final Cut, remastered in 4K Ultra HD with Dolby Vision® and Dolby Atmos® from a 4K scan of the original negative. This debut screening will be followed by a conversation with Coppola himself. “The audience will be able to see, hear and feel this film how I always hoped it could be—from the first ‘bang’ to the final whimper,” said Coppola.

Say Anything… will be observing its 30th anniversary at Tribeca as well. After a screening of the film, a conversation with director Cameron Crowe, executive producer James L. Brooks, and cast members John Cusack and Ione Skye will follow. Crowe stated, “Can’t believe it’s been 30 years since we made Say Anything…The movie grew out of many inspiring conversations with James L. Brooks, and a quest to bring a new kind of romantic couple to the screen.”

Additionally announced by Tribeca was the World Premiere of the documentary Between Me and My Mind about Phish Lead Singer Trey Anastasio, followed by a performance from Trey Anastasio Band. The 25th anniversary of Reality Bites will also screen, followed by a conversation with director Ben Stiller, cast members Ethan Hawke, Winona Ryder, and more.
