  • Rocketman will open in NZ on May 30th

The global premiere for Rocketman happened overnight at the Cannes Film Festival in Cannes, and Taron Egerton has maintained his image of "perfect angel man" as he tied Sir Elton John's shoelace on the red carpet, performed a duet of the film's title song with Sir Elton at the film's gala party, and openly wept after the film ended.

Elton John and Taron Egerton are emotional about their film's successful debut at Cannes. "Above all, it's a snazzy, overproduced vessel for the songs", IndieWire said, "as Taron Egerton gives the karaoke performance of his life in a sufficient impersonation of a very familiar face".

The track, penned by John and his songwriting partner of more than 50 years Bernie Taupin, is an upbeat number called (I'm Gonna) Love Me Again, that received its first play on BBC Radio 2 on Thursday. "Even if the movie doesn't make one penny at the box office, which will kill Jim Gianopulos, it is the movie I wanted to make".

Egerton was visibly moved to tears after the premiere.

Elton John hammed it up for the cameras. "It's not [Queen biopic] Bohemian Rhapsody where the brilliant Rami Malek, who played Freddie [Mercury], lip synched".

Rocketman stars Taron Egerton (Kingsman: Secret Service) as the famed singer/songwriter, along with Jamie Bell (TURN: Washington's Spies), Richard Madden (Game of Thrones), and Bryce Dallas Howard (Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom). But Rocketman is R-rated and less cautious about its star's homosexuality.

The Tiny Dancer hitmaker also praised the Welsh actor's singing skills when they recently appeared together on his Rocket Hour Apple Music show. It grossed US$903 million worldwide.
