ROCKETMAN is an epic musical fantasy about the breakthrough years of larger-than-life superstar Elton John (Taron Egerton). Set to John’s most beloved songs (performed by Egerton), it tells the uncensored human story of how small-town boy and shy piano prodigy Reginald Dwight became one of the most iconic figures in pop culture. ROCKETMAN also stars Jamie Bell as John’s longtime lyricist and writing partner Bernie Taupin, Richard Madden as John’s first manager, John Reid, and Bryce Dallas Howard as John’s mother Sheila Farebrother. Dexter Fletcher, who took over directorial duties for the smash hit musical biopic BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY, is at the helm.
From Danny Boyle and Richard Curtis comes a British musical comedy about dreams of stardom and unexplained phenomena. Aspiring singer-songwriter Jack Malik (Patel) is struggling with his career. He’s just a man with big dreams and a guitar, loved and supported by his childhood best friend, Ellie (James); and he’s far from famous. Until one day, during a mysterious global blackout, a car hits him and he comes round to find that nobody remembers The Beatles – apart from him! Feeling obliged to bring the legendary melodies of the Fab Four back to life, and with a little help from his steely American agent (McKinnon), Jack rises to global stardom faster than you can say, ‘I believe in yesterday.’ But he may have taken on more than he can handle.
