Watch Taron Egerton Completely Transform Into Elton John & Belt “Tiny Dancer” in ‘Rocketman’ Trailer

Should we go ahead and call this a 2020 award season front runner?


Move over Freddie Mercury, it’s Elton John’s time to shine!

A brand new trailer for the highly anticipated biopic of the piano man has arrived showcasing Elton’s transformation from quiet boy to eccentric performer we all know and love. Taron Egerton completely shines in the trailer and showcases his pipes. We knew he could sing because of the movie Sing but we had no idea he could belt out Elton John’s classics so well.

The movie also stars Richard Madden, Jamie Bell & Bryce Dallas Howard and is set to hit theaters May 31, 2019. We have a feeling that a year from now, this movie will be getting some awards love especially when it comes to those amazing costumes.
