Paramount Pictures have released the first trailer for Rocketman, which will document Elton John’s incredible rise to fame.

Taron Egerton stars as the legendary singer in the film, alongside Jamie Bell, who plays Elton’s longtime songwriter Bernie Taupin, and Bryce Dallas Howard – who stars as Elton’s mum Sheila Eileen.

The trailer’s first scene shows Taron reenacting Elton’s iconic 1975 concert at Dodger Stadium – where he wore that sequined Dodgers uniform.

Rocketman is set for release in May.
