Teaser Trailer for 'Rocketman' Starring Taron Egerton as Elton John
"There are moments in a rockstars life, that define who he is… Where there was darkness, there is now: you." Paramount has released the first teaser trailer for Rocketman, an epic biopic examining the life of famed musician Elton John, the latest film made by Dexter Fletcher (Wild Bill, Sunshine on Leith, Eddie the Eagle). Young actor Taron Egerton stars as Elton, taking us on a musical fantasy and journey through his life and experiences. From the looks of it, this will cover quite a bit of time not just one specific period, including his musical partnership with Bernie Taupin, played by Jamie Bell. The cast also includes Bryce Dallas Howard, Richard Madden, Steven Mackintosh, and Gemma Jones. So far, so good! This is looking fantastic! I'm pretty much sold already, even though it's just a teaser. The shot of the crowd starting to float is really cool, it's slick touches like that that will make this film really stand out. Ready for launch?
