Can’t Wait For… Rocketman | Gini’s Yaps
Editor Note: Gini has several things she is eagerly awaiting, movie-wise and she is going to share some short little pieces of wisdom for you, our readers (and her fans) in these Can’t wait for segments.
Fist up, is the new film about the life of Sir Elton John, entitled Rocketman.
Let’s see what Gini has to say.
Please let us know in the comments below if you are excited about this movie and your thoughts.
It’s not a secret that I’m a huge Elton John fan – Elton was the first musical artist that was “mine” – someone who my mother didn’t “get”, someone whose music I discovered on my own (thanks to the radio), someone whose music seemed made for me.
I first saw the trailer for this before Bohemian Rhapsody, and I’ve watched it several times. I literally cannot wait for this movie. Taron Edgerton is a great choice to play Elton – yes, he’s more handsome but otherwise, he’s really got the right body build, facial structure, and, per the trailers, he can sing. I love Edgerton in the Kingsman franchise and I think I’ll love him even more after Rocketman releases.
Of all the movies coming out this year – and there are a lot I want to see – this is my #1. I’ve loved Sir Elton too long to not make this my viewing priority.
