Mark your calenders for November 18th as Sir Paul McCartney makes his Blu-ray debut in his concert fim ‘The Space Within Us.’ The movie was shot during Paul’s 2005 sold-out US tour with 25 HD cameras. Over two dozen song performances are included including classic Beatles tunes such as “Penny Lane” and “Yesterday.” No word on bonus materials but with 25 cameras at their disposal, I’m sure the crew shot plenty of behind-the-scenes footage.
