It’s been a long time coming, but we finally have a first look at Aisling Bea’s new movie, Greatest Days based on the Take That stage musical The Band.
The movie follows five best friends who have the night of their lives seeing their favourite boy band in concert and 25 years later, the friends reunite for one more epic show by their beloved band to hopefully relight their friendship.
Featuring some of Take That’s biggest hits including Greatest Day, Patience, Back For Good, A Million Love Songs and Shine, the story reignites lost friendships and discovers hope for their futures in a feel-good tale about love and music.
The film is directed by Coky Giedroyc and written by Tim Firth – the author of the novel that inspired the musical.

“Today this could be… well not today, but JUNE 16th is the day Greatest Days hits the cinemas. A musical movie based on the west end hit with the music of Take That,” she wrote.
“It also features some new and old faces & your old pal Bea acting her little heart out. Trailer coming soon.”

Speaking previously in an interview, Ailsing shared how she was ready to get “singing and dancing” in his feel-good joy fest of a movie.
“I have long waited for Take That to know who I am. I’ve played the long game, but I feel like I am now so close”
“My dream is for them to ask me to sing the Lulu solo on stage, so I hope they read this quote and take THAT into consideration.”
