We now have a brief but tantalising taste of the upcoming Elton John sort-of biopic Rocketman.

Why “sort-of”? Well, it’s billed as being “based on a true fantasy”, with Elts – played by Kingsman‘s Taron Egerton – in the midst of “an epic musical fantasy” that still touches on his real story.

Hey, you can’t say it isn’t an intriguing proposition.

Rocketman, also starring Jamie Bell, Richard Madden and Bryce Dallas Howard, is due in cinemas sometime in mid-2019.
