Taron Egerton plays the iconic music star Sir Elton John in the upcoming fantasy musical biopic Rocketman.
Rocketman follows the life story of the legendary Britsh musician Sir Elton John.
John has been in the game for over 50 years, with an unbelievable contribution to the music world and pop culture alike.
The film will cover his story from the early days of being a prodigy at the Royal Academy of Music, through to his musical partnership with Bernie Taupin.
The first teaser trailer offers us a glimpse of Kingsman actor Taron Egerton as John and he’s a splitting image.
Egerton seems to have a bit of a voice on him too, so it appears to be great casting.
We get a bit of the artist’s music in the trailer as well, along with some fantastical footage.
Rockemtan appears to be a mix of biography, drama and fantasy, which should work well considering the scope of Sir Elton John’s life.
The film is directed by Dexter Fletcher, who recently directed Eddie the Eagle (2016) and Sunshine on Leith (2013) before that.
Jamie Bell, Richard Madden, Gemma Jones and Bryce Dallas Howard co-star.
The film hits cinemas on 30 May 2019.
