‘Rocketman’ Trailer: Taron Egerton Shoots for the Stars in Elton John Biopic

This means more trippy imagery and fantasy sequences galore in the latest Rocketman trailer.

‘Rocketman’ Featurette Lets Taron Egerton Sing as Elton John

Hollywood can’t say no to a musical biopic. They’re usually hits, and more often than not, they score Oscar noms – even if they’re not very good (cough cough Bohemian Rhapsody cough cough). But the upcoming Rocketman, which tells the story of Elton John, might end up being a pleasant surprise. For one thing, it’s being sold as a “musical fantasy”, not a straightforward biopic. For another, it has Taron Egerton in the lead, and he’s actually singing – not just lip-synching. A new Rocketman featu...
