As we head into the fall season, some music fans are already looking forward to the summer and the release of the new biopic on Elton John. Luckily, the theatrical gods have given us something to satisfy our appetite in the form of a new trailer for the movie.
In the new trailer for “Rocketman,” actor Taron Egerton can be seen playing the role of the legendary music man, known for hits such as “Bennie and the Jets” and “Rocket Man.” This sneak peek at the movie shows the artist in various points of his career, from the early days playing in small clubs to his years living in mansions and trying to combat his various demons.
“There are moments in a rock star’s life that define who he is,” a voice narrates during the movie trailer.
And yes, the man himself has already expressed his support for the movie and the actors that will play within it. In an Instagram post released on Friday, Elton John showed his anticipation for the movie’s release. “Hold on to your glasses,” he wrote alongside a still from the movie. “This is going to be a wild ride!! Here’s Taron Egerton (portraying me!) on the set of the Rocketman movie.”
So tell us – who plans to see this movie?
