LOOK: Taron Egerton is Elton John in ‘Rocketman’

Visionary David LaChapelle has created some of the most iconic imagery in Elton John’s career. Now, he turns his lens on the ‘Rocketman’ film poster with Taron Egerton as Elton John.


Paramount Pictures’ ‘Rocketman’ is an epic musical fantasy about the incredible human story of Elton John’s breakthrough years. The film follows the fantastical journey of  transformation from shy piano prodigy Reginald Dwight into international superstar Elton John. The image in the poster captures the originality and cinematic scope of ‘Rocketman’, as well as the spirit of the icon that is Elton John.

According to Elton John himself, he said he hasn’t heard anyone sing his songs better than Taron (yes, Taron actually sings in the film – and convincingly, at that!) “His voice is incredible,” adds director David Fletcher. 

This inspirational story – set to Elton John’s most beloved songs and performed by star Taron Egerton – tells the universally relatable story of how a small-town boy became one of the most iconic figures in pop culture. ‘Rocketman’ also stars Jamie Bell as Elton’s longtime lyricist and writing partner Bernie Taupin, Richard Madden as Elton’s first manager, John Reid, and Bryce Dallas Howard as Elton’s mother Sheila Farebrother. 

‘Rocketman’ will be distributed in the Philippines by United International Pictures through Columbia Pictures.
