It's been 11 years since "Across the Universe" was released in theaters and today it remains no less miraculous than it was then. Featuring over 30 iconic Beatles songs in an array of show-stopping spectacular sequences, the movie musical immediately earned a small but devoted cult following.
Now it's getting another shot on the big screen. On July 29, 31, and August 1, the film will screen in over 450 theaters (more info at FathomEvents.com).
Joining Josh to detail how the film came to be, why it's more resonant than ever, and why it never got the release it deserved, is visionary filmmaker Julie Taymor. Listen to her today and you'll see her passion for this project hasn't waned, if anything it's grown.
