Dark Matter

Based on the novel of the same name by Blake Crouch, Dark Matter is a story about the road not taken.

Let It Be

Let It Be

Michael Lindsay-Hogg's original 1970 film About The Beatles, meticulously restored by Peter Jackson's company.

First released in May 1970 amidst the swirl of The Beatles' breakup, Let It Be now takes its rightful place in the band's history.

Once viewed through a darker lens, the film is now brought to light through its restoration and in the context of revelations brought forth in Peter Jackson's Emmy Award-winning docuseries The Beatles: Get Back.

Released on Disney+ in 2021, the docuseries showcases the iconic foursome's warmth and camaraderie, capturing a pivotal moment in music history.

Let It Be contains footage not featured in the Get Back docuseries, bringing viewers into the studio and onto Apple Corps' London rooftop in January 1969 as The Beatles, joined by Billy Preston, write and record their Grammy Award-winning album Let It Be, and perform live for the final time as a group.

With the release of The Beatles: Get Back, fan clamour for the original Let It Be film reached a fever pitch.

With Lindsay-Hogg's full support, Apple Corps asked Peter Jackson's Park Road Post Production to dive into a meticulous restoration of the film from the original 16mm negative, which included lovingly remastering the sound using the same MAL de-mix technology that was applied to the Get Back docuseries.

With England finally in contention for a major championship, 6,000 ticketless football fans storm Wembley Stadium, leaving destruction in their wake.

The squad had inspired the country on their journey to England's first major final since 1966, and the European Championship was within their reach.

But as England supporters arrived at Wembley from all corners of the country, celebration quickly turned to chaos.

Mayhem took over with scenes of drunkenness and drug-taking, and ticketless fans saw an opportunity to storm the stadium.

With compelling first-hand testimony and visceral user-generated-content, this is the dramatic story of a day that began with euphoria, and ended in a nation left reeling.

In the Season 3 premiere, "Career Day Part 1": It's a new year at Abbott Elementary, and Janine is as eager as ever.

She plans a district-wide initiative - Career Day - and is anxious for it to be a success.
