"Where there was darkness, there is now you," growls Bodyguard star Richard Madden in his Scottish brogue, "and it's going to be a wild ride". Cue super-sized stadium gigs, wild after-parties and more than a little rock star excess, as Elton hits the road in fine style.
The new movie is billed as being "based on a true fantasy" and will have a fair few out-there sequences from the looks of this first footage. That said, Elton's husband David Furnish is on board as a producer, with the man himself taking an Executive Producer credit, so expect authenticity amongst the drug-fuelled dream sequences.
Directed by Dexter Fletcher and co-starring Jamie Bell, Bryce Dallas Howard and Steven Mackintosh, Rocketman will open in the UK on 31 May 2019.
