Ordinary Reginald Dwight becomes the extraordinary Elton John in the full trailer for epic musical fantasy Rocketman
From a shy piano prodigy to an international superstar and one of the most iconic figures in pop culture, Elton John’s inspirational story is very much a true fantasy and one that’s made for movies. Kingsman star Taron Egerton transforms himself to star and sing in an epic musical fantasy about Elton John’s breakthrough years. Set to some of Elton’s most beloved classics, the full trailer gives a sneak peek of Elton’s incredible journey small-town boy to smash-hit megastar and the relationships he formed and struggles he encountered along the way. Directed by Dexter Fletcher, who last year replaced Bryan Singer to finish the foot-stomping celebration of Queen Bohemian Rhapsody, Rocketman also stars Jamie Bell as Elton’s longtime lyricist and writing partner Bernie Taupin, Richard Madden as his first manager John Read, and Bryce Dallas Howard as his mother Sheila Farebrother.
