And the film’s trailer:

Rocketman comes at a big time for the rock and roll biopic — after Bohemian Rhapsody made waves last year in the box office for its tale of the Queen and Freddy Mercury story, for one, and also as Elton John continues his massive, three-year farewell tour activities.

Might Rocketman be as big a hit as Bohemian Rhapsody? We’ll have to wait and see.
