Fandango partnered with Paramount Pictures to offer early access screenings of Taron Egerton’s “Rocketman” on May 18th. The early previews will be available through Fandango, allowing fans a first look at the new musical biopic. Directed by Dexter Fletcher, working off a script written by Lee Hall, the film stars Egerton, Jamie Bell, Richard Madden, and Bryce Dallas Howard.
Tickets for this limited engagement go on sale today, exclusively on Fandango.
The early access screenings are almost two weeks before the film’s May 31st premiere date. The film is scheduled to release domestically shortly after making its debut at the Cannes Film Festival. Fans and members of Fandango VIP can get a first look at the film at nearly 400 theaters nationwide.
Fandango has offered several exclusive previews this year. Back in February, the company offered early screenings for DreamWorks Animation’s “How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World,” and in March, for Warner Bros. Pictures’ DC hit “Shazam!”.
“We’re proud to team up with Paramount Pictures to host Early Access Screenings for ‘Rocketman,’” says Fandango President Paul Yanover. “Our first two Early Access Screenings generated great buzz for ‘How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World’ and ‘Shazam!’ We think Fandango VIP members and fans will be delighted to have the opportunity to see this highly-anticipated Elton John musical fantasy two weeks before its release date.”
Tickets for the film’s May 31st release date also go on sale today.
“Rocketman” follows a journey of transformation, starting with shy piano prodigy Reginald Dwight and ending with international superstar Elton John. This inspirational story is set to Elton John’s most beloved songs, which are performed by Egerton. The movie tells the story of how a small-town boy became one of the most iconic figures in pop culture. Jamie Bell stars as Elton’s longtime lyricist and writing partner Bernie Taupin, Richard Madden as Elton’s first manager, John Reid, and Bryce Dallas Howard as Elton’s mother Sheila Farebrother.
