See Rocketman’s Taron Egerton and Elton John perform Tiny Dancer
With Paramount Pictures’ upcoming Elton John biopic Rocketman landing in theaters on May 31, star Taron Egerton was joined by legendary singer Elton John onstage for a live rendition of the song “Tiny Dancer”! You can see Taron Egerton and Elton John perform together in the video below, which was filmed at last night’s 27th annual Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party. The gala event raised over $6.3 million for the global effort to end AIDS, with Egerton auctioning a trip to attend the Rocketman world premiere in London.
The film will focus on Elton John’s beginnings, starting when he was a prodigy at the Royal Academy of Music and carrying over to when he reached global stardom through his influential and enduring musical partnership with his songwriting collaborator Bernie Taupin. It will look at the performer’s life past the glitter saturated image we have grown so accustomed to associating with the performer.
Rocketman stars Taron Egerton (Kingsman: Secret Service) as the famed singer/songwriter, along with Jamie Bell (TURN: Washington’s Spies), Richard Madden (Game of Thrones), and Bryce Dallas Howard (Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom).
BAFTA nominee Dexter Fletcher (Wild Bill, Eddie the Eagle) will be directing Rocketman from a script by Oscar-nominated writer Lee Hall (Billy Elliot). Matthew Vaughn and his Marv Films will be producing the film alongside Elton John with his Rocket Pictures partner David Furnish.
