Paramount Pictures has released a brand new featurette for their upcoming Elton John biopic Rocketman, highlighting the importance of the film’s costumes in portraying the legendary singer’s life. The film’s fabulous costumes were designed and curated by Julian Day, who was also known as the costume designer for the Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody. Starring Taron Egerton, the film is set to premiere in theaters on May 31. Check out the video below!
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.
