Get your feather boas and bedazzled sunglasses ready, Rocketman is almost here!
Starring Kingsman star Taron Egerton as Sir Elton John, Rocketman is a fantasy biopic based on John’s breakthrough years as a performer.
Directed by Dexter Fletcher (Wild Bill, Eddie the Eagle), written by Lee Hall (Billy Elliot, Pride and Prejudice), the film will include music by Matthew Margeson (Kick-Ass 2, Kingsman movies). All songs performed in Rocketman feature Egerton’s stunning vocals.
Fans were excited to get an early taste of Egerton’s Sir Elton John impression in February. At John’s AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Party, the two performed “Tiny Dancer” as a duet, sending fangirls of all ages into a frenzy. Needless to say, while Egerton’s voice isn’t a replica of Sir Elton John’s, he is able to bring his own spark to John’s timeless songs.
You can finally see Rocketman at a theatre near you starting May 31. In the meantime watch the trailer below!
