Sir Elton John Takes Center Stage in Dazzling Rocketman Movie

He might have played Eddie the Eagle, but can Taron Egerton perform as Captain Fantastic?

 

The first trailer for Rocketman, a biopic about Sir Elton John’s early years, is finally here.

 

This seems part of a curent burst of Tributes, with Freddie Mercury-focused Bohemian Rhapsody out on the 24th of this month.

 

But it turns out the films shares the same director, in a way: Rocketman helmer Dexter Fletcher stepped in to wrap up Bohemian Rhapsody after that film’s original director, Bryan Singer was fired last December.

 

Like Bohemian Rhapsody, Rocketman is a film about the early years of a rock star and prominent gay icon who reached the peak of his fame in the 1970s and 80s.

 

After just a few years working as an actor in TV and film, Egerton hit it big with Kingsman: The Secret Service in 2014, charming audiences with an abundance of charisma and solid comedic timing.

 

One year later, the actor proved he can carry a biopic in Eddie the Eagle, which received largely positive if not glowing reviews.

 

Rocketman will premiere on May 31, 2019.
