Post ROCKET MAN trailer


The most unwanted biopic to-date. Should've waited for him to kick the bucket. He is not a legendary musician yet. And it looks crap.

Haven't seen the trailer yet, but about what you said first, there's just a lack of LGBT source material out there that they're having to go to places like this I guess.

Elton is definitely a legend, is famous worldwide, has had a fascinating life and a huge career, why is making a movie about him scraping the bottom of the barrel??? He's on the same level as Freddie Mercury or even above...

You'll see why when it flops.

Elton John is easily as big if not bigger than Freddie Mervury and Queen. 9 number 1 hits compared to their 2.

It's funny because even in BR they drop Elton John's name as a status to aspire to. I'm not interested in seeing Rocket Man but there will no doubt be a solid audience for this film.

I bet Elton is very pleased that Taron is playing him. Young Elton was a 5 at best. Taron is a hard 9.

I like Egerton in Kingsman, but he does not feel right for this and I think this will be just received averagely as well.

They are stealing BR marketing, but boy it's not the same. I'll give him props for actually singing though. This looks more like the James Brown film than BR.

I know what Taron and his team are thinking. Play a "legend", sing yourself, show your talent, do a biopic, get some awards, and you'll be a star. But nah. I don't see people warming to Taron Egerton. He'll never be Brad Pitt. He doesn't have star quality. He also doesn't have any talent. He isn't even handsome. A bit of a plain one. And he doesn't have an upper class voice like other Britons (Benedict Cumberbatch etc.). To be a star in the US, you need to toe the line of what Americans think Britons are like. He can play lower class chav characters, the same as Jack O'Connell can, but they aren't star worthy. Maybe he can play Ricky Hatton in the story of his life. I guess he's at least trying to transcend the stereotype and become the next Eddie Redmayne. Fair play for trying, but it'll never happen.

That's another reason why this will flop and why Bohemian Rhapsody did not. Taron is no Rami Malek, and Elton John is no Queen. "Bohemian Rhapsody" means one thing to everyone. "Rocketman" could mean anything. Could be about Neil Armstrong.

Uhhh... he has the most insanely perfect jawline I've ever seen.

Agreed that he'll never be a true star though.
