Rocketman is now playing in the UK. It opens in Australia on May 30 and in the US on May 31.
You wait for a biopic about a British music legend and two come along within a few months of each other. Not only that but they also have the same director involved. However, where Bohemian Rhapsody failed for some, Rocketman makes up for it in spades. Taron Egerton is Elton John in Dexter Fletcher’s stunning biopic that lays out, warts and all, the turbulent life and times of the English singer, songwriter, pianist, and composer.
The Kingsman actor doesn’t just play John; he is consumed by him in a role that you expect to see him nominated for Best Actor from the Oscars to BAFTAs and beyond come awards season. His flawless performance, including his chill-inducing vocals, is outstanding.
