Hello Hello!!


September 2nd, 2007

Bono is the walrus. @ 05:34 pm

I'm currently feelin: bouncy bouncy

The first clips of Bono performing as Dr. Robert in the new musical set to Beatles songs surfaced Friday evening on NBC's Extra:


(Clip courtesy of a member on Interference, and hosted on YouTube by my good friend Greg)

There are also a few words from Bono (in costume still) about the movie and about playing the character.

Most people seem to be cringing and facepalming at Bono's performance, and I can understand some of that, but I also find it incredible. Just incredible in a really, really strange way.

That said, I really cannot wait to see the movie *excited* It's even better news that the release date is now September 21st, not September 28th as it was previously.

I love it! I can't wait to see it. It'll be weird in the best possible way, I'm sure.

Thanks for posting this :)

For me it's more than a couple. It's The Beatles, it's a musical, it's a love story, it's set in the 60s, it's artsy and funky, it's directed by Julie Taymor, it has Eddie Izzard, Salma Hayek, AND Bono. It's got just about everything I could ever want in a movie =D

I've been waiting for this movie for like years now! Well at least, it feels that way...so I can't wait until I can see it! It looks like it's just going to be visually stunning and altogether decadent. Can't wait!

I think that's the limited release, but it opens all over the U.S. on the 21st.
