The Elton John musical biography Rocketman opens in UK cinemas today (Wednesday 22 May)


Taron Egerton takes the lead role as the superstar singer who began life as Reginald Dwight, with Billy Elliot’s Jamie Bell starring as John’s long-term collaborator Bernie Taupin.

And the Billy Elliot connection doesn’t end with Bell’s appearance - Rocketman’s screenplay has been written by Lee Hall, whose script for the much-loved dance drama was nominated for an Oscar in 2001.


Rocketman is directed by Dexter Fletcher, who helmed much of Bohemian Rhapsody after original director Bryan Singer was dismissed.
