Before the Beatles became an international sensation, they were four young moptops playing gigs in Liverpool cellars. Five decades later, director Ron Howard is exploring their meteoric rise to fame in the documentary The Beatles: Eight Days a Week — The Touring Years, which just unveiled its second trailer.

Focusing on the Fab Four’s adventures from 1962 to 1966, the film features rare and exclusive footage and was made with the blessing of band members Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, as well as John Lennon’s widow, Yoko Ono Lennon, and George Harrison’s widow, Olivia Harrison.

In the trailer, the quartet can be seen at work and at play, and heard discussing the toll Beatlemania took on them all.

“I always liked singing ‘Help’ because I meant it,” Lennon says. “It’s real.”

Watch the trailer above. Eight Days a Week will hit theaters Sept. 16 and debut on Hulu a day later.
