New Trailer For Taron Egerton’s Musical Fantasy Elton John Biopic ROCKETMAN
Paramount Pictures has released a new trailer for the upcoming Elton John biopic Rocketman, which as you’ll see looks unlike any other biopic that has been made before. It’s going to be wild film, as it should, and Taron Egerton seems to fit perfectly in the role of a young Elton John.
The movie has been described as, "a biographical musical fantasy that will weave together John’s life and his music." The story will follow his emergence as a prodigy at the Royal Academy of Music to become a music superstar "who rebelled against his strict upbringing, wore outrageous costumes and became a global icon who teamed with songwriter Bernie Taupin to sell more records than just about any musical artist of his era."
Dexter Fletcher (Bohemian Rhapsody) is attached to helm the project from a script written by Lee Hall. Egerton will be joined by Jamie Bell (TURN: Washington’s Spies), Richard Madden (Game of Thrones), and Bryce Dallas Howard (Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom). When previously talking about the film, the director said:
“It’s a musical fantasy, not a biopic. We have Elton’s songs and Elton’s life story, or a part of it. And it is a fantasy version of real life. It is a true fantasy. So I am looking to create something that will entertain and inform and amaze and do many, many things.”
Rocketman hits theaters on May 31, 2019. Watch the new trailer and let us know if you’re looking forward to watching the movie.
