The movie stars Taron Egerton as John and the trailer teases an overview of the Tiny Dancer hitmaker’s life.
Rocketman, directed by Dexter Fletcher and written by Lee Hall, tells the story of the singer’s rise to international fame in the late 1960s.
Born Reginald Dwight, the film follows his upbringing and his earliest days as a musician as John transforms into the pop icon he is today.
Many fans of the singer took to Twitter to discuss the trailer for Rocketman.
