Watch Rocketman 2019 Full Movie Online Free Streaming<> : The story of Elton John’s life, from his years as a prodigy at the Royal Academy of Music through his influential and enduring musical partnership with Bernie Taupin.
Rocketman is an upcoming biographical drama film based on the life of musician Elton John. Directed by Dexter Fletcher and written by Lee Hall, it stars Taron Egerton as John, with Jamie Bell, Richard Madden, and Bryce Dallas Howard. The film follows John’s early days as a prodigy at the Royal Academy of Music up to his eventual musical partnership with Bernie Taupin. The film is titled after John’s 1972 song “Rocket Man”. An Elton John biopic had been in development for almost two decades, with the project going through several directors, studios and actors, which include Walt Disney Studios, Focus Features, Michael Gracey, Tom Hardy and Justin Timberlake. After creative disputes with Focus that halted an initial production start in Fall 2014, John took the project to Paramount Pictures, with Egerton being ultimately cast as John and Fletcher signing on as director in April 2018. Principal photography began in August 2018 and wrapped up that same fall. Rocketman is set to premiere at the Cannes Film Festival on 16 May 2019, and scheduled to be released in the United Kingdom on 22 May 2019 and the United States on 31 May 2019, by Paramount Pictures.
When Paramount was getting ready to release the first images from “Rocketman,” Elton John was shown one photo of Taron Egerton in character sitting on a plane. “It’s a picture of Taron sitting on the Starship, the private jet Elton had in the ‘70s, a big Boeing 707,” says David Furnish, “Rocketman” producer and John’s husband of almost five years (they’ve been together for 26 years). “He’s on the sofa with the glasses and the hot pants. I sent it to Elton and Elton said, ‘I don’t remember taking that. When did I take that picture?’” He thought it was him. Elton was like, ‘Oh my God. Oh my God. It’s uncanny.” Three months after Rami Malek won the best actor Oscar for his portrayal of Freddie Mercury in “Bohemian Rhapsody,” Egerton is set to appear as Sir Elton. The Dexter Fletcher-directed “Rocketman,” also starring Richard Madden, Jamie Bell and Bryce Dallas Howard, premieres out of competition on Thursday. “Cannes has always had a special history for us,” Furnish tells Variety. “Elton’s ‘I’m Still Standing’ was filmed there and Elton and I saw ‘Billy Elliot’ for the very first time at its world premiere at the festival in 2000. [John went on to write the music for the Tony-winning musical adaptation of the movies.] So we have happy memories and hopefully good luck there.”
