Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr at George Harrison London premiere
By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Surviving Beatles Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr turned up for the London premiere of the new George Harrison biopic, “Living in the Material World,” directed by fellow legend Martin Scorsese.
“Every time I see something to do with George it brings back more memories than you would believe, McCartney said outside of Sunday’s screening, which was held at the BFI Southbank. “He was my little mate on the school bus. A lot of fond memories. He’s sorely missed by us all.”
Scorsese’s documentary will receive a limited theatrical release before making its way to HBO. It also will be screened as part of the New York Film Festival later this week. Scorsese’s doc divides into two halves. In one, he chronicled the Beatles’ meteoric rise. The second documents the artist’s solo career.
Though McCartney and Starr received the bulk of attention at the premiere, they weren’t the only celebs with Beatles ties at the London event.
THR reports that George Martin, Yoko Ono, Noel Gallagher, Billy Connolly, Terry Gilliam and Ronnie Wood all were in attendance for the documentary, which runs more than 3-and-1/2 hours.
