The 70s were an influential time for music. It was a time where icons built their legacy. The greatest of them was none other than the flamboyant songbird Sir Elton John. Who, gave us some of the greatest songs of our lifetime with Benny & the Jets, Tiny Dancer, Your Song, and the title that maybe most know him for, Rocketman. As a string of musical biopics have become all the rage, it’s high time that the great one tell his. With Taron Edgerton as his vessel, Rocketman tells the unfiltered true fantasy of how one of the greatest artists of all time became a legend.
Here is the first teaser trailer for Rocketman…
ROCKETMAN is an epic musical fantasy about the uncensored human story of Sir Elton John’s breakthrough years, starring Taron Egerton, Jamie Bell, Richard Madden and Bryce Dallas Howard.
So far, I like what I’m seeing, but then again I’m a sucker for a good musical biopic. With Rocketman, though, the music just sounds on point. I’m not sure if that’s Egerton or John singing, but I’m liking it. Plus, it’s got just the right amount of fantasy that’s needed for a character like Sir Elton John.
Rocketman, starring Taron Egerton, Jamie Bell, Richard Madden, and Bryce Dallas Howard with Dexter Fletcher directing and Sir Elton John executive producing, alongside Producer Matthew Vaughn, hits theaters May 31, 2019!
