A biopic about Elton John is set to hit theaters next summer, and now we have our first look at it. The official teaser trailer for “Rocketman” was just released. The film stars “The Kingsman’s” Taron Egerton as Sir Elton, and the clip shows him dressed in many of Elton’s famous outfits, as well as him dealing with his demons, with the help of alcohol.
“There are moments in a rock star’s life that define who he is,” the clip’s narrator says. “Where there was darkness there is now you, and it’s going to be a wild ride.”
“Rocketman” is set to hit theaters May 31st. Check out the clip to the right.
- ONE MORE THING! Elton’s songwriting partner Bernie Taupin is set to auction off items from his personal collection later this year. Items going on the auction block include the original annotated lyrics to 1997’s “Candle in the Wind,” and original lyrics to “I’m Still Standing.” The auction is set to take place November 9th and 10th at the Hard Rock Café in New York.
