Rocketman is set for landing.
The first trailer for the Elton John biopic was released Monday, bringing this much-anticipated film that much closer to ground control.
The film will “follow Sir Elton’s life his years as a prodigy at the Royal Academy of Music through to his influential musical partnership with lyricist Bernie Taupin, played by Jamie Bell. It will document the life of the singer and songwriter from youth as a student to the start of his rock career in the 1970s and 80s.”
Taron Egerton, who plays John, models an impressive number of flamboyant outfits for such a short preview, but what else would you expect?
Directed by Dexter Fletcher, Rocketman was written by Lee Hall, best known for writing the 2000 film Billy Elliot.
Rocketman arrives in theaters May 17.
