The Yellow Submarine sails again

The Beatles animated classic Yellow Submarine is to return to cinemas to celebrate its 50th anniversary - sporting a new 4K digital restoration and a 5.1 stereo surround sound remi, the movie is going to look and sound better than ever. The film is being screened through a deal with the Beatles' Apple Corps Ltd., Abramorama and Universal Music Group. A new trailer and film poster have been released for the film's return.

The animated movie, which was written by Lee Minoff, Al Brodax, Jack Mendelsohn and Erich Segal and directed by George Dunning, is based on the title song written by John Lennon and Paul McCartney and sung by Ringo Starr. The song, which came from the 1966 Revolver album, entered the U.S. singles charts on Aug. 20, 1966 and peaked at No. 2 during a nine-week run on the Billboard singles chart. The flip side, “Eleanor Rigby,” debuted on the charts the following week on Aug. 27 and peaked at No. 11, staying on the charts for eight weeks. It entered the U.K. charts Aug. 11, 1966, and topped the Record Retailer/Music Week charts during an 11-week run. It made a brief one-week return in 1986 only getting to No. 63.
