The first trailer has been released for Danny Boyle's new film which was partly shot in East Anglia.

The seaside town of Gorleston-on-Sea in Norfolk was transformed into a huge film set in June 2018 for a scene in the movie Yesterday.

The Slumdog Millionaire director asked for 5,000 extras to turn out on the beach and the locals didn't disappoint.

The film follows struggling musician Jack, played by Himesh Patel, who discovers he is the only person who can remember The Beatles.

Yesterday was written by Richard Curtis and also stars Ed Sheeran.
