Elton John's name is everywhere not just because of his massive farewell tour, but because of his own biopic Rocketman.
The film is based on the life of Elton John, the famously flamboyant singer, pianist and composer who is one of the best-selling music artists in the entire world.
Taron Egerton, who stars as the iconic performer, has previously explained the film isn't the biopic many might expect, and has instead referred to it as a 'fantasy musical'.
Last year he told Collider: "We are making a movie called Rocketman about Elton John's formative years. Everyone thinks it's a biopic. It isn't. It's a fantasy musical so it's actually his songs used to express important beats in his life at emotional moments. He's not the only character that sings. It's going to be fun."

Egerton also explained that he's been adamant to do the job properly - and that he'd not only be performing the songs himself, but he'd also be singing them live on set.
He said: "I've recorded some songs. I've been doing singing lessons. The next step is I need to think about choreography and trying to create some semblance of a performance that is at least reminiscent of him."
Egerton added: "I'm going to do it all. I'm going to do it on set as well. We're going to use a variety of techniques but I will always be singing on set. No miming. I'm just not interested in doing it that way."
