Runtime: 2hr 1m
Elton John’s life story is too fantastic for a down-to-Earth biography. Rocketman casts Taron Egerton (Kingsman: The Secret Service) as the celebrated ‘Goodbye Yellow Brick Road’ singer in an uncensored story that reveals all the grand highs and difficult low points of John’s five-decade career.
If you were enraptured by Bohemian Rhapsody, Rocketman will take you even further into the stratosphere, as Elton John’s story becomes the fuel for musical fantasy sequences that break the bounds of reality. Dexter Fletcher, who worked on the Queen biopic, directs. Jamie Bell, Richard Madden and Bryce Dallas Howard co-star.
