When I heard about “One Chance” I was excited about the opportunity to share this fresh, emotionally compelling film with Yahoo audiences everywhere.  The true story of Paul Potts, along with a unique and powerful soundtrack, grabbed my attention immediately.  

That’s why we are pleased to announce that starting today you can watch the full-length feature film exclusively on Yahoo Screen (on desktop & mobile via the Yahoo Screen app) TEN DAYS BEFORE it’s released in theaters nationwide.  You can also visit Yahoo Screen for exclusive clips and cast interviews. Read on for more about this incredible story.

From the director of “The Devil Wears Prada”, “One Chance” is a true story adapted into a screenplay, which revolves around Paul Potts, a shy, bullied shop assistant by day and amateur opera singer by night. Paul became an instant YouTube phenomenon after being chosen by Simon Cowell for “Britain’s Got Talent.” Wowing audiences worldwide with his phenomenal voice, Paul went on to win “Britain’s Got Talent” and the hearts of millions. “One Chance” stars James Corden, the recently announced new host of “The Late Late Show” on CBS, as well as Alexandra Roach and Julie Walters.

Along with The Weinstein Company, we are proud to continue bringing amazing content from some of the world’s greatest storytellers to our audience. We couldn’t be more excited to premiere this poignant and inspiring film.

So get your popcorn ready and sit back and enjoy a new era of movie viewing.

By Josh Wolk, Executive Editor of Yahoo Entertainment

Today, we’re premiering the new Yahoo Movies, a digital magazine that provides movie lovers of all kinds—from blockbuster fanatics to indie-film obsessives—a ticket to the ultimate movie experience.


Watching movies isn’t just about going to the theater or renting DVDs anymore: People are devouring films on their phones, tablets and laptops. And that’s where Yahoo Movies lives as well, with a full screen experience for first-look movie trailers, behind-the-scenes scoop, and red-carpet galleries.

Whether you’re heading out to the theater or looking for something to stream at home, our writers will guide you to the must-see films, both new releases and lost classics. We’ll also feature in-depth essays from top critics, interviews with Hollywood’s biggest stars , and sneak peeks of the most anticipated films. And with our exclusive live stream events, we’ll continue to put you on the red carpet at movie premieres as well as the year’s top awards shows.

If you like movies with giant explosions, intimate love stories, superheroes, subtitles, banter, bawling, or all of the above—we’ve got your ticket. And there’s more to come. So grab a popcorn bucket (treat yourself to the extra large with butter; you deserve it!), lean back, and enjoy the new Yahoo Movies!
