Looking for an interesting way to celebrate Americas birth this summer? Why not watch four lads from Liverpool in their first feature length film! Thats right; its a re-release of A HARD DAYS NIGHT starring The Beatles, it returns to theaters for its 50th anniversary this July 4th.

Here's the synopsis:

Meet the Beatles! Just one month after they exploded onto the U.S. scene with their Ed Sullivan Show appearance, John, Paul, George, and Ringo began working on a project that would bring their revolutionary talent to the big screen. A Hard Days Night, in which the bandmates play slapstick versions of themselves, captured the astonishing moment when they officially became the singular, irreverent idols of their generation and changed music forever. Directed with raucous, anything-goes verve by Richard Lester and featuring a slew of iconic pop anthems, including the title track, Cant Buy Me Love, I Should Have Known Better, and If I Fell, A Hard Days Night, which reconceived the movie musical and exerted an incalculable influence on the music video, is one of the most deliriously entertaining movies of all time.

The plot is nearly non-existent, its campy as hell but thats just fine. If youre going to watch it, it will be for the timeless music and crazy antics of these talented youngsters. For its time, this movie was a fantastic comedy, full of wit and charm. I highly recommend it as it still holds up well today. Also, did I just say youngsters?

Check out the trailer below and tell us your greatest Beatles memory.

A HARD DAYS NIGHT opens July 4th 2014, and stars John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr. There is also a Criterion Collection Blu-ray planned, which will be released on June 24th 2014.

Love this film. Being a massive Beatles fan (who isn't!) I find it hilarious, and of course the soundtrack is great. I prefer Help out of their movies but this is a very close second.

So depressing

Every time I see John Lennon I just get depressed at the amazing music he could have created in the mid-eighties through the early nineties. I also imagine if The Beatles had gotten together for one last album and tour before George Harrison died and if Lennon wasn't killed. I've really gotten into The Beatles on a deeper level as I've entered my thirties and I have gained such an appreciation for their song writing abilities. I may see this one the big screen just for the experience...also

Not a perfect movie but it gives a nice look into John Lennon's early years and Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Quicksilver) gives a top notch performance as Lennon.

Same here, man. Love The Beatles. My favorite songs of theirs are Eleanor Rigby and Let It Be.

Awesome Netforce we're pretty close in song choices, Elenaor Rigby and Strawberry Fields. Their songs used to just be nice, enjoyable tunes but now I have a much greater appreciation for their lyrical ability.

Though it's not essentially The Beatles, John Lennon's "Imagine" just stands the test of time. It really is a timeless song. I'd probably need to watch Yellow Submarine again.
