Elton John and his biopic Rocketman landed on Thursday (Friday NZ time) at the Cannes Film Festival, where the 72-year-old pop star came dressed in a tuxedo with "Rocket Man" emblazoned on the back and regaled attendees with an after-party performance on the beach.
The movie, starring Taron Egerton, tracks the singer's first steps in the music business, from his tentative tryouts on the piano as a child to his explosion onto the US scene and its drug and alcohol-fueled party world.
"Rocketman" - which is receiving positive early reviews - also features a new song recorded by John and Egerton called "(I'm Gonna) Love Me Again", a clip of which John tweeted out.
The film hits theaters on May 31.

The film will focus on Elton John's beginnings, starting when he was a prodigy at the Royal Academy of Music and carrying over to when he reached global stardom through his influential and enduring musical partnership with his songwriting collaborator Bernie Taupin. However, the film has since been given a more mature R rating, and Fletcher has promised that it will be a "no-holds barred" account of the singer's life.

Time will tell if that investment translates to the same numbers as "Rhapsody", which was the most successful musical biopic of all time at the box office, grossing almost $1 billion globally, not to mention winning four Oscars. This is not a concern to John, though.
