While the first Rocketman trailer only gives us a brief look at the Elton John biopic, it does give us a first look at Taron Egerton as Elton John! The transformation is uncanny, as you might not even recognize the Kingsman star! Check out the Rocketman trailer below.
One of the best parts of the Rocketman trailer might be the tagline, which states "based on a true fantasy." I mean, it's Elton John, so would you expect anything else? Rocketman is going to show us the rise of Elton, as he becomes an international star. Of course, there will be some bumps along the way. We are also going to see some of John's most iconic concert moments, which includes his historic concert at Dodger Stadium in 1975.
It's a little surprising that this biopic took so long to make, as Elton John, a winner of five Grammy awards, is the third most successful Billboard Hot 100 artist. He is only beaten out by the Beatles and Madonna! Besides Egerton, Rocketman also stars Bryce Dallas Howard, Jamie Bell and Richard Madden.
