For four decades Beatles fans have blamed Yoko Ono for the band's demise. However, in a revealing interview with Sir Paul McCartney, the legendary singer has shed light on many aspects of himself and the Beatles, as well as removing blame from Yoko Ono and transposing it onto Allen Klein, the Beatles' manager who took over proceedings after the death of their original manager, Brian Epstein.
In this new interview that McCartney's given to David Frost, he admitted "[Yoko] certainly didn't break the group up, the group was breaking up". E! reports that also told Frost what a great influence she had on John Lennon. After the breakdown of the Beatles Lennon went on to forge a hugely successful solo career, including the wildly popular and iconic song 'Imagine'. "I don't think he would have done that without Yoko, so I don't think you can blame her for anything. When Yoko came along, part of her attraction was her avant garde side, her view of things, so she showed him another way to be, which was very attractive to him," McCartney said. "So it was time for John to leave, he was definitely going to leave."
The Frost/McCartney interview will be aired on Al Jazeerah English, and is the longest interview given by McCartney for decades.
Jack is a young farmhand working for the King. One day, he comes across small bean-like objects, which are described as 'holy relics' from a faraway land. The relics, however, are full of dark magic and could change the world if placed in the wrong hands. Jack is entrusted with them, on the condition that he doesn't lose them or get them wet. Jack is puzzled but accepts the relics anyway.
That night, a terrible storm rages. Jack has left the bean shaped objects on a surface in his hut, where rain falls on them through a hole in the ceiling. At first, nothing happens; then Jack looks on in horror as a beanstalk grows from the ground under his hut. The beanstalk connects the human world to a world where giants roam.
Jack lands himself in trouble when a giant kidnaps the beautiful Princess Isabelle. The King sends some of his best men up the beanstalk with Jack to rescue Isabelle. Their rescue attempts are nearly in vain, though, when the giants wage war on the humans. It is up to Jack to save Isabelle and his kingdom.
Jack The Giant Killer is directed and produced by Bryan Singer, who is well known for directing the films The Usual Suspects; Superman Returns and the X-Men films. The film is based on the British fairy tale; the screenplay for the film was written by Christopher McQuarrie and Dan Studney.
