The first trailer for the upcoming Elton John biopic Rocketman has been released.
The film stars Taron Egerton (‘Kingsman’, ‘Eddie the Eagle’) and traces John’s rise from the Royal Academy of Music toward becoming one of music’s biggest stars.
Egerton does his own singing in the movie. Tom Hardy was originally hired for the lead role, but left the project after struggling with the vocal demands.
It’s due out in May of 2019.
