On Friday, we got a first look at Taron Egerton as Elton John in the movie Rocketman, and now we have an even more extensive look at the upcoming biopic in the newly released teaser trailer. The video opens with a recreation of Elton John performing at the Dodger Stadium in a shimmering sequinned Dodger uniform in 1975. From there, the eccentricity only picks up. While a series of clips show what's to come in the film — flashy costumes, parties, hospital scares, levitation — a narrator states, "There are moments in a rock star's life that define who he is. Where there was darkness there is no you, and it's going to be a wild ride." Watch the trailer above for a mystically musical sneak peek of the film, and look out for Rocketman when it hits theatres on May 17, 2019.
