***It starts at 7:00. I'll be in the lobby on the movie side by 6:30.*** It's almost sold out (not counting the front seats). The movie is Rocketman. Its central character, is the fabulously flamboyant Elton John. What’s your favorite EJ song... Music biopics are all the rage at the moment, with the Freddie Mercury film Bohemian Rhapsody picking up an Oscar and a Mötley Crüe movie released on Netflix. The film follows the music icon’s journey as he prepares to release ‘Honky Chateau’, his 1972 breakthrough album that featured the landmark single ‘Rocket Man’. It’s been billed as an “uncensored human story” and a “larger than life movie musical spectacle that tells the story of a child prodigy turned music legend”. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=S3vO8E2e6G0# Actor Taron Egerton (Elton John) has described the film as “the world’s first R-rated musical” and hinted that it won’t be a straight-forward biopic. “Everyone thinks it’s a biopic. It isn’t. It’s a fantasy musical so it’s actually his songs used to express important beats in his life at emotional moments. He’s not the only character that sings. It’s going to be fun,” Egerton told Collider.
