Ron Howard’s documentary The Beatles: Eight Days a Week made its world premiere Thursday in London. Howard, John Lennon’s widow Yoko Ono, and George Harrison’s widow Olivia Harrison were among those at the star-filled screening, but the marquee guests were Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr.

The two surviving Beatles walked along the blue carpet, showing that nothing has changed in the 54 years since Starr joined the Fab Four. The duo, each donning a dark suit, strolled and stopped to pose together, flash peace signs, and be occasionally goofy.

Eight Days A Week tracks the Beatles during their touring years, from 1962 to 1966. The film — produced by McCartney, Starr, Ono, and Olivia Harrison — offers up exclusive footage of the lads from Liverpool in the early days, as they made their way to small clubs to selling out giant stadiums.

See more photos of McCartney and Starr below. Eight Days a Week opens Friday and debuts on Hulu Saturday.
