The latest clip from Rocketman offers a look at Elton John‘s childhood and the early days of his career.
Opening in theaters nationwide on May 31, Rocketman stars Taron Egerton as Sir Elton and is being billed as “an epic musical fantasy,” not a biopic, and rightfully so. This certainly won’t be your average by-the-numbers storytelling. This is something far grander, and considering its subject, fans shouldn’t expect anything less.
Rocketman also stars Jamie Bell as songwriting partner Bernie Taupin, Richard Madden as former manager/boyfriend John Reid and Bryce Dallas Howard and John’s mother, Sheila.
Erica Banas is a rock/classic rock blogger. The first man she ever loved was Jack Daniel. (True story.)
