The Elton John movie is a great success in Cannes, London and Seoul
"If the Bohemian rhapsody is the cheeseburger of rock star biographies, Rocketman is a gourmet cross-dresser with some lobster," said Dan Wootton, a British correspondent for The Sun, in a gastronomic parable of the film musical about Elton John's life.
The film, which has been welcomed with stand-up applause so far, has won critical acclaim and millions have watched the video of Taron Egerton, the film's protagonist, starring Elton John. "Do not talk about it. The emotions were a little captivated. It was one of the best days of my life, ”the actor said.
When he later thanked me for his praise, he added, “Thank you to everyone who said nice things about me. They made a young man from Aberystwyth extremely happy. And they made a 72-year-old rock star even happier. ”
All judges point out that Egerton is not only a great actor, but she can sing really well, giving her a full-fledged role as Elton John. Professional magicians are confident that they will receive the Golden Globe and Oscar nominations.
The movie's music album was released, not only re-arranging Elton John's songs, but also featuring all of the main character's performances on the album, including classics like Tiny Dancer, Don't Go Breaking My Heart, I'm Still Standing, and of course Rocket Man.
“I wanted Taron to play me completely, not just acting, but singing. I had full confidence in the interpretation and the brilliant Giles Martin - I knew Taron would be in good hands. And the end result surpassed all my expectations! ”Said Elton John about the creative process.
The album also features a brand new song: (Gonna) Love Me Again is performed by a musician and an actor. All the tracks were recorded at the legendary Abbey Road Studio and AIR Studios.
