Paramount Studios has released a short video of actor, Taron Egerton as a surprise guest at Elton John's concert in England in celebration of 'Rocketman' biopic film crossing $100 million at the global box office.

The duo sang a duet of 'Your Song', which plays a key role in the film itself. Watch the video below.

John's biopic film ended the weekend by passing the $100 million mark globally as reported by Box Office Mojo. "Rounding out the top five [movies] is Paramount's 'Rocketman', which dropped 4 percent in its second weekend for an estimated $14 million (in the United States). The film's domestic cume now stands at just over $50 million after ten days in release. Internationally, the film added $13 million from 50 markets for an overseas cume that now totals just over $51 million and a worldwide gross over $101 million."

The total sales has placed 'Rocketman' in the Top 10 of all-time bestselling music biopics. Although they're only currently at No. 9, they're likely to rise before the theatre run is complete. However, it is unlikely that 'Rocketman' will match, let alone surpass the overwhelming success of Queen's biopic film, 'Bohemian Rhapsody', which made more than $900 million worldwide.
