'Yellow Submarine' at 50

Big box set to mark Beatle film's anniversary

Yellow Submarine - 1968

We all live in a yellow submarine, but only 1,968 Beatles fans will be able to sail away with the new, humongous box set commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Beatles' animated movie and the upcoming publication of a graphic novel adaptation.

"The Beatles Yellow Submarine Limited Edition Box Set," available October 10, is packed to the gills with all kinds of goodies showcasing the hardcover book by Bill Morrison, a former illustrator of "The Simpsons" and the new editor of MAD magazine. The graphic novel goes on sale August 28.

In addition to the book, the lavishly illustrated box includes a 6.5-inch vinyl figurine of a yellow submarine, five Beatles badges, 16 movie lobby cards, four posters, a replica ticket from the movie's premiere, and an exclusive art card autographed by Morrison.

The Beatles' official online store is accepting pre-orders now. The pricetag: $196.80, a nod to the year that "Yellow Submarine" premiered in theaters and the box set's limited production of 1,968 copies.
