The first trailer for the upcoming Elton John biopic is here. Rocketman will tell the story of John’s rise to fame.
Taron Egerton, who plays the singer, says the movie is more of a “musical fantasy” versus a biopic.
Watch the trailer below:
Elton has been very involved in the film’s creation: he produced the film alongside his partner David Furnish through the couple’s company Rocket Pictures.
Other supporting cast members include Jamie Bell as his lyricist Bernie Taupin and Bryce Dallas Howard as his mother Sheila Eileen.
Lee Hall is the writer of the screenplay, while Dexter Fletcher will direct. Fletcher is also directing the upcoming Queen biopic, Bohemian Rhapsody, in theatres November 1.
The film is slated to hit North American theatres on May 31, 2019.
