We imagine that it would be unusual watching other people be you in a movie. Now, the subjects of upcoming “epic musical fantasy” Rocketman, Elton John and Bernie Taupin, tell us what it’s like.

The interview comes from Cannes, where from all reports the Rocketman world premiere went down a treat – including a seven-minute standing ovation. Taron Egerton’s name is already being bandied about as a definite Oscars contender, too.

Rocketman is set to land in Australian cinemas on May 30.
