By now you’ve probably already read about or seen one of Elton John’s final touring shows as he is in the middle of his “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road” tour (which was discussed HERE if you somehow missed it. Then the news came about a biopic about Elton’s life and origins to the musician we know today came about and it seemed like this would be well received based on all the accolades that “Bohemian Rhapsody” received. If you missed the Official Trailer just click HERE to be on point with that. Now, the moment has arrived and the film “Rocketman” opens today in theaters everywhere. It’s rated “R” actually so only a select audience can enjoy it in the theaters. Let’s review the poster, premise and casting.
It was just over a year ago in January 2018, that Sir Elton John announced that he would be embarking upon his “Farewell Tour” and bring his world of fans his greatest hits one last time. I’ve documented assorted narratives for the readership since then since in online time this feels like a forever ago but if you didn’t see the initial announcement and want to just click HERE to see the scoop. Then in October 2018, we got the very first glimpse of the upcoming biopic “Rocketman” but since it was a teaser there wasn’t much to it. Now, some four months later, Paramount Pictures has delivered a full on Official Trailer and if you love the music of Elton (and who doesn’t in some sense), you’re going to want to see this one. Let’s watch.
