Elton John performed before a massive crowd in Hove, England over the weekend as part of his farewell tour, and he did something that he hasn't done so far this entire tour: Bring out a special guest. The guest? Taron Egerton, who plays Sir Elton in Rocketman.
Finally, after much build-up, the Elton John film Rocketman hits theaters in the United States today (May 31), so this seems like a perfect time to see just how much you know about Sir Elton's biggest hits.
Let's cut to the chase: With the release of the Elton John film Rocketman, there are undoubtedly going to be a lot of comparisons between this film and the uber-successful Freddie Mercury/Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody. That's unavoidable since two films about two British music icons are being released less than a year apart. What's also unavoidable is…
Rocketman is getting closer to its May 31 opening, but before it's unleashed on the United States, the film opened at the Cannes Film Festival in France where Elton John and the cast appeared at the festival's photocall.
Rocketman will feature actor Taron Egerton portraying Elton John and singing the artist's iconic hits. For anyone unsure about that task, the newly released video of Egerton's version of "Rocketman" will more than put them at ease.
