Beatles’ Apple Corps Sued Over Concert Footage in ‘Eight Days A Week’

By Alisha Jackson

One of the biggest selling points of catching Ron Howard’s Beatles documentary Eight Days A Week in theaters is the bonus footage that follows it. While the film itself will be making its way to Hulu on Saturday, September 17th, only the theatrical release of the documentary will feature 30 minutes of rare bonus footage from The Beatles’ 1965 Shea Stadium concert.

Unfortunately, that may be the only place anyone will ever see the remastered footage, as The Beatles’ companies are reportedly being sued for using it. On Monday, September 12th, Sid Bernstein Presents, LLC filed a lawsuit against two Beatles-related companies, Apple Corps Ltd. and Subafilms Limited. “Without Sid, the mastermind of the event, this film would never have been made,” reads a statement from the plaintiff via Billboard. “The Bernstein Family is guided by their father’s spirit of peace and humanity. However, they are also guided by principle and look forward to having an opportunity to present their case in court.”
