The Ed Sheeran Movie: Where To Watch, What It Is, & How To Cope If You Can't Get To The Theater
If you have ears and emotions, you probably love Ed Sheeran. The British singer is known for his swoon-worthy lyrics as well as his gorgeous voice, which has earned him Grammy nominations in addition to many radio hits. This year, fans who have never gotten to see the artist live were excited to learn that he was releasing a concert movie called Jumpers for Goalposts, a movie filmed at Wembley Stadium when Sheeran performed there for a massive crowd during his last tour. The film also includes behind-the-scenes footage and commentary from Sheeran, just in case the performance clips didn't give you enough of his melodic voice. So now that you're all amped, you're probably wondering where you can watch the Ed Sheeran movie... and I'm so sorry to say, I have good news and bad news on that front.
The good news: Jumpers for Goalposts is in select theaters, including a special broadcast streaming from Leicester Square in London on Oct. 22. The bad news: the movie is only in theaters thru Oct. 25. So if you've already made plans for the weekend, you're going to miss the opportunity to have Sheeran croon to you from the silver screen. I feel really bad to have to be the one to tell you this, so let me help make it better. Here are a few ways you can cope if you're not able to see Jumpers for Goalposts in theaters, but still need your Sheeran fix.
Watch Sheeran Sing "Drunk In Love"
You know what makes everything better? Beyonce. You can self-soothe by watching footage from September's Global Citizens Festival in New York, where Queen B and Sheeran performed a seriously creative duet.
Go Thrift Shopping
This might seem like an odd suggestion until you remember the fact that Sheeran donates his clothes to charity shops. So going on a quest to literally get in his pants could be an excellent distraction from your Jumpers for Goalposts FOMO.
Catch Up With Some of Your Other Favorite Gingers
Use this time to get reacquainted with the British redheads you've been neglecting since Sheeran came into the picture. For example, put on some Florence and the Machine songs — or if that's too emotional to listen to during this difficult time, throw it back to the '90s with Jerri and the other (non-ginger) Spice Girls.
I know that not being able to watch Jumpers for Goalposts right now is really upsetting. But at some point, you need to scoop yourself up off the floor and stop listening to "The A Team" on repeat. Ed Sheeran isn't falling from stardom anytime soon, so you'll undoubtedly have more chances to be serenaded by him in surround sound — hopefully sooner than later.
