It's Been A Long, Long Wait For ROCKETMAN

  • Pat Cerasaro

Coming quick on the heels of international mega-hit BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY, exploring the song catalogue of iconic British stadium rock group Queen, ROCKETMAN brings the oeuvre of Grammy, Tony and Academy Award winner Elton John to the big screen for the very first time after multiple decades in development hell.

Helmed by BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY co-director Dexter Fletcher and starring Taron Egerton as John himself alongside Jamie Bell, Richard Madden and Bryce Dallas Howard, ROCKETMAN is a phantasmagoria of life meeting art with vivid and eye-popping enactments of scenes and songs from John's incomparable career.

Featured songs in the visually arresting new extended trailer include "Your Song", "Benny And The Jets", "Tiny Dancer" and "Rocketman", all performed by Egerton himself.

ROCKETMAN is scheduled for release on May 31, 2019.
