The tantrums, the tiaras, the songs, the drugs, the scandals - expect the full, unvarnished story of one of music’s biggest superstars in this exhilarating musical fantasy from director Dexter Fletcher, starring Taron Egerton as Reginald Kenneth Dwight - better known as Elton John.
Not your traditional music biopic, Rocketman blends fact with musical fantasy as key moments in John’s offstage life are transformed into epic song and dance numbers. Egerton supplies the vocals himself for classic tunes like Crocodile Rock and Tiny Dancer, whilst the supporting cast includes Bryce Dallas Howard as his mother Sheila and John Madden as his former manager and lover John Reid.
Rocketman is as brash, colourful and brutally honest as the man himself, who’s given the film his complete blessing. The ups and the downs are all here. Strap in for the ride.
