The first trailer for Elton John's biopic film, "Rocketman", has been released.

Starring Taron Egerton as Elton John, the film will look at his rise from the Royal Academy of Music towards becoming one of the most successful pop stars the world had known. Egerton is best known for the "Kingsman" movies and does his own singing in the film as seen in the trailer above where he sings the classic 1972 "Rocket Man".

Due for release in May 2019, the trailer ends with the message, "based on a true fantasy". The film is produced by John himself and directed by Dexter Fletcher who had recently stepped in to take over for Bryan Singer on another upcoming biopic featuring Queen, "Bohemian Rhapsody"
