Watch Reginald Dwight Become Elton John in New Rocketman Trailer

Taron Egerton plays the legendary pop star in the upcoming film.

Another trailer has been released for the upcoming Elton John biopic Rocketman, set to be released by Paramount Pictures on May 31. The trailer (and the film) follows John's trajectory from London schoolboy to international pop star.

The film will star Taron Egerton (Kingsman: The Secret Service) as the legendary rock star and composer of The Lion King and Billy Elliot: The Musical. Dexter Fletcher (Eddie the Eagle) will direct a screenplay by Lee Hall (Network).

John is currently at work on a Broadway-bound musical adaptation of The Devil Wears Prada with Shaina Taub and Paul Rudnick.
