   This summer, experience the sheer thrill of The Beatles’ deliriously entertaining cinematic breakthrough all over again. Courtesy of Janus Films, the landmark comedy-musical A Hard Day’s Night, directed by Richard Lester, is opening on July 4th in theaters across the country in a pristine 4K restoration from the original camera negative, and with a new 5.1 soundtrack remixed and re-mastered by record producer Giles Martin at Abbey Road Studios.


   Just about a month after they exploded onto the US scene with their Ed Sullivan Show appearance, John, Paul, George, and Ringo (above) began working on a project that would bring their revolutionary talent to the big screen, and cement the social concept of Beatle-mania. Inspired by the comedy of Peter Sellers, A Hard Day’s Night feature the Fab Four playing slapstick versions of themselves, and capture the astonishing moment when they officially became the singular, irreverent idols of their and future generations; in the process, changing music forever. It features a slew of iconic pop anthems, including the title track, Can’t Buy Me Love, I Should Have Known Better, and If I Fell.

   A Hard Day’s Night, which re-conceived the movie musical, influenced numerous spy films, helped define The Monkees’ television show, and exerted an incalculable footprint on the creation of the music video, is one of the most deliriously entertaining movies of all time.
