Preview: One musician is the last Man on Earth who remembers The Beatles in Danny Boyle’s fantasy, “Yesterday”

It’s a little sci-fi, and a lot “Love Actually.”

Danny Boyle directed and Richard Curtis scripted this musical romantic fable.

Lily James, Ed Sheeran, Kate McKinnon and others are among the “names” that surround star Himesh Patel, who plays a struggling musician who could, you know, cash in. If, you know, nobody remembers The Beatles or holds those copyrights.

Just saying. Maybe our hero can afford to get his teeth fixed when, you know, he becomes the star that they were — in equally sudden and overwhelming fashion.
“Well, it’s not Cold Play…”

Stay all the way through it — two teases to the trailer are followed by the trailer proper.

“Yesterday” opens Sept. 13.
