Rocketman Teaser Trailer: Taron Egerton is Elton John


With the release of Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody just one month away, Paramount has released the first trailer for their own big upcoming rock star biopic, Rocketman. The movie is directed by Dexter Fletcher (Eddie the Eagle), who also took over for Bryan Singer when he bailed on Bohemian Rhapsody near the end of production (Singer still got the directing credit, however). Kingsman star Taron Egerton takes on one of the more complex roles of his career thus far as the brilliant and iconic Elton John, although let’s face it… those amazing costumes are doing at least half of the work for him. Rocketman hits theatres on May 17th; check out the trailer after the jump and see what you think.

    Interesting. I like Egerton…but I’m not sure of him as Elton…need to see more.

    I think the best interpretation of a rocker I’ve ever seen seen is Kilmer as Morrison. The guy rocked the soul of JM.
