The teaser trailer has arrived for Rocketman, the uncensored story of Sir Elton John’s breakthrough years.
The film is directed by Dexter Fletcher and stars Taron Egerton, Jamie Bell, Richard Madden, Gemma Jones and Bryce Dallas Howard. Egerton takes on the role of Sir Elton and you can see him in action by watching the teaser trailer below:
The trailer features a voiceover from Richard Madden who plays Elton’s manager and former lover John Reid. Reid was Elton’s manager from 1970 to 1998.
While there’s not much in the way of dialogue in the trailer, you can hear Egerton singing Elton’s classic Rocketman. The actor is also seen looking very like Elton in his younger years, wearing some of the icon’s most recognisable outfits.
Rocketman is produced by Matthew Vaughn, David Furnish, Adam Bohling and David Reid. The film’s executive producers are Elton John, Steve Hamilton Shaw, Michael Gracey and Claudia Schiffer.
Rocketman will be released in cinemas in May 2019 with an exact date to be confirmed.
