Greatest Days, the musical movie based on the songs of Take That gets a new alternative poster. Catch the film in UK and Irish cinemas on June 16th.
The Elysian Film Group will be bringing us the musical Greatest Days this June. The film is a feel-good and universal story of love and friendship featuring the hit songs of Take That. And adapted from the smash stage show by the writer of Calendar Girls. We follow five best friends who have the night of their lives seeing their favorite boy band in concert. Twenty-five years later their lives have changed in many different ways as they reunite for one more epic show by their beloved band. To relight their friendship and discover that maybe their greatest days are ahead of them.
Greatest Days is an epic movie musical that marries the heartfelt story of a group of women who grew up loving a boyband with a series of fantastical song and dance sequences. They take us from 1930s MGM-style musicals to Magic Mike-style modern moves, set to the songs of one of the UK’s most successful and loved musical acts.
Growing up in Clitheroe in Lancashire in 1993, 16-year-old Rachel (Lara McDonnell) and her gang of four best friends – Debbie (Jessie Mae Alonzo), Claire (Carragon Guest), Zoe (Nandi Hudson), and Heather (Eliza Dobson) – idolize the boyband they tune in religiously every week to watch Top Of The Pops.
In times of trouble, Rachel even summons the Boys – played by Aaron Bryan, Dalvin Sol, Joshua Jung, Mark Samaras, and Mervin Noronha – from her imagination and into her reality. And when the Boys appear, the world around the girls comes alive. Magical realism turns their mundane surroundings into glorious musical numbers. All choreographed to brilliantly reimagined new versions of Take That’s biggest songs, including Never Forget, Back For Good, Shine, Rule The World, Greatest Days, and many more
After a life-changing event sees the young girls go their separate ways, they reunite 25 years later. Rachel (played in this other timeline by Aisling Bea) wins a local radio competition to see the boys on their reunion tour in Greece. Inviting the older Claire (Jayde Adams), Zoe (Amaka Okafor), and Heather (Alice Lowe) along for the ride, Rachel and her old pals’ journey to the Greek capital of Athens. To go on a vibrant and hilarious musical odyssey that will see them get into scrapes face up to old demons and discover that their greatest days may yet be ahead of them.
