After a couple of teasers and featurettes, Paramount Pictures finally released the full trailer for Rocketman. The epic musical fantasy tells the incredible human story of Elton John’s breakthrough years. It follows the fantastical journey of transformation from shy piano prodigy Reginald Dwight into international superstar Elton John.
This inspirational story – set to Elton John’s most beloved songs and performed by star Taron Egerton – tells the universally relatable story of how a small-town boy became one of the most iconic figures in pop culture. Rocketman also stars Jamie Bell as Elton’s longtime lyricist and writing partner Bernie Taupin, Richard Madden as Elton’s first manager and lover, John Reid, and Bryce Dallas Howard as Elton’s mother
If you loved Bohemian Rhapsody, then you’ll probably enjoy this too. It looks like this musical biopic will be equally as entertaining and joyous, minus the baggage of the Bryan Singer controversy.
Rocketman blasts into theaters on May 31. Check out the sparkling trailer below.
