Description

    Paramount Pictures presents, in association with New Republic Pictures, A Marv Films/Rocket Pictures production Rocketman, an epic musical fantasy about the incredible human story of Elton John's breakthrough years.

    Released in Australian cinemas from 30th May, the film follows the fantastical journey of transformation from shy piano prodigy Reginald Dwight into international superstar Elton John. This inspirational story - set to Elton John's most beloved songs and performed by star Taron Egerton - tells the universally relatable story of how a small-town boy became one of the most iconic figures in pop culture. Rocketman also stars Jamie Bell as Elton's longtime lyricist and writing partner Bernie Taupin, Richard Madden as Elton's first manager, John Reid, and Bryce Dallas Howard as Elton's mother Sheila Farebrother.

    Rocketman was directed by Dexter Fletcher, written by Lee Hall and produced by Matthew Vaughn, David Furnish, Adam Bohling and David Reid

    Elton John says: "It was so important that the music I composed and recorded had to be sung by Taron. I wanted his interpretation of me, through Bernie's lyrics & my music - not just acting. I left Taron in the hands of Giles Martin, who I trusted implicitly because he's brilliant. I didn't want to be in Taron's shadows, watching over the process, I trusted them to do what they needed to do, artistically, and listening back I've been astonished with the results. Getting the music right was the most important thing, as the songs in the film are integral to the story."

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for the album. My wife & I saw the movie "Rocketman" recently, loved it & I bought the CD as soon as I could. My wife is already a huge fan of Sir Elton John (& I like him too) so I was thrilled to add this CD to her Elton collection. The soundtrack is exactly the same as in the movie. Taron Egerton who plays Elton in the film is superb. No other actor could do Elton justice and the music is terrific. Taron sings all of the songs, as well as the final song which Elton also sings. Very happy customer!
