#Rocketman hits theaters May 31, 2019 but we have our first look at the teaser trailer here! The upcoming biopic from Paramount Pictures about Elton John shows Kingsman series star Taron Egerton channeling a '70s-era Elton showing off plenty of costume looks from the legendary performer.
"There are moments in a rock star's life that define who he is," Egerton's voiceover notes, before adding: "it's going to be a wild ride." The teaser also gives fans a chance to hear Egerton as Elton; the actor covers his Kingsman 2 co-star on the titular track... What do you think, does he sound like Elton?
The studio describes the movie as, "an epic musical fantasy about the uncensored human story of Sir Elton John’s breakthrough years," and the teaser proves that to be true showing both dark moments and a fantasy of the audience and Elton floating at one point.
Directed by Dexter Fletcher, Rocketman also stars Jamie Bell, Bryce Dallas Howard and Richard Madden. Matthew Vaughn, who directed the Kingsman movies, is a producer!
