ROCKETMAN: Elton John Biopic Gets First Teaser Trailer [VIDEO]

With anticipation riding high for Rami Malek to rock you as Freddie Mercury in the upcoming Bohemian Rhapsody, it’s easy to forget that there’s also been another long-gestating biopic of another musical icon in the works. That would be Rocketman, the story of Elton John’s rise to superstardom in the 1970s, both during and after his stint at the Royal Academy of Music in London. And instead of starring Tom Hardy as first planned, the film’s teaser trailer now reveals Taron Egerton (Kingsman) in full regalia while carrying Elton’s signature flamboyant costumery well. Yet those jackets, those sunglasses, and those winged boots all take a glittery backseat for those who wonder if the film can properly translate the subject matter’s magical factor, along with that voice.

Rocketman will land in theaters on May 31, 2019.
