Watch The Beatles speak about Beatlemania in new documentary trailer: “We were kids, we were all pretty scared”

The Ron Howard-directed feature will focus on The Fab Four's "touring years"

A new trailer for The Beatles: Eight Days a Week documentary has been released, giving an insight into how the band struggled to deal with the mass hysteria that followed them around from 1962-66.

The Ron Howard-directed documentary, which will be released in cinemas on September 15, will piece together archive footage and interviews of the band from this particular time period, along with brand new interviews from The Beatles‘ surviving members Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr.

In this new clip, released earlier today, The Beatles’ struggle with fame is touched upon. Largely comprising of shots of the band at press conferences and giving interviews during their first visits to the US, they’re interspersed with clips of screaming fans and, at one point, a protest against The Beatles that culminated with their records being ceremoniously burned at a public bonfire.

Watch the trailer below.

Howard has promised to have enhanced archive concert and interview footage of The Beatles in his new film.

“We’ll not only be able to digitally repair [the Super 8 footage], but we’ve also been finding the original recordings,” he told Rolling Stone in 2014. “We can now sync it up and create a concert experience so immersive and so engaging, I believe you’re going to actually feel like you’re somewhere in the Sixties, seeing what it was like to be there, feeling it and hearing it.”
