Taron Egerton looks fabulous in Rocketman's newest trailer


A tiny dancer for a massive film

Biopics on celebrities might be a bit old hat by now, but you have to admire the dedication to capturing Elton John's persona in Rocketman. Taron Egerton has the look down pat to the point that I'm almost convinced it's Sir Elton, himself. Even in my older age with my cynicism growing, the magic of make-up and prosthetics still astounds me.

Rocketman is all about how John went from his shy, lonely childhood persona into the mega-star we all know. Set to the backdrop of some of his most classic songs (of which this trailer doesn't even feature the titular track), it looks to be a rousing adventure for fans of Reginald Dwight's work.

Rocketman will hit theaters on May 31, 2019.
