Directed by Dexter Fletcher, Rocketman is the story of singer, pianist, and composer Elton John.
Starring Taron Egerton, Jamie Bell, Richard Madden and Bryce Dallas Howard, Rocketman will show John’s life as a prodigy at the Royal Academy of Music through to his enduring musical partnership with Bernie Taupin.
Egerton isn’t exactly the first person I’d think of to play John, and so I’ll hopefully find out just how wrong I was for not thinking of him. I’m also looking forward to finding out something more interesting about John than ‘Reginald Kenneth Dwight’, the name his parents gave him.
Steven Mackintosh, Michel Alexandre Gonzalez Gemma Jones and Kamil Lemieszewski also star.
In Kingsman – The Golden Circle, the Kingsman headquarters are destroyed and the world is held hostage. Upon discovering an allied spy organization in the US. The two elite secret organisations must work together to defeat a common enemy…
Before the First Kingsman movie, Kingsman – The Secret Service, I mostly knew the film’s director Matthew Vaughn as an excellent producer to one of my favourite British directors, Guy Ritchie.Look at him now! I can’t wait to see what looks yet another very welcome and thrilling festival of style, action and adventure.
I don’t actually recall how things were left with Sofia Boutella’s very cool ‘Gazelle’ character in the first movie, but my hope is that this new instalment will be so good that I barely miss her, if at all.
