Taron Egerton and Elton John

The Elton John musical fantasy biopic Rocketman is set to hit theaters this May. Taron Egerton will play the iconic musician, whose music has garnered millions of fans around the world. And while we have seen his musical talents on display in only a few films and the two Rocketman trailers and one featurette, we have yet to get the full effect of his take on Elton John. Until now.

During Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party (the awards were held last night), both John and Egerton took to the stage to sing “Tiny Dancer,” and it made for not only an impressive performance, but something that should prove to everyone that the actor was the right person to portray the singer. Check out the video here below.

Rocketman Trailer

Taron Egerton has an unbelievably good singing voice. It’s a bit of a shame we don’t get to hear more often. Luckily, the actor will put that to good use in Rocketman, a film that covers Elton John‘s formative years as a global icon and music artist.

Directed by Dexter Fletcher, the film won’t be a traditional biopic, but rather a musical fantasy that uses Elton John’s music to tell the story of his life and career. Today Paramount released an official trailer for the film, and you can check it out below.

ROCKETMAN Elton John biopic

Biopics can cover a wide range of the subject ranging from a specific time that defined them to their entire life. In Rocketman, Taron Egerton will portray Elton John in a musical fantasy that is “based on a true fantasy.” Of course, there will be musical numbers in it, but based on the trailer there will be so much more to it.

Check out the teaser trailer here below.

Simon Kinberg Is “Really Focused” On Getting ‘Fantastic Four’ Sequel Off The Ground

The Fantastic Four Michael B Jordan Human Torch with Simon Kinberg

Fox being limited to two Marvel properties doesn’t give them much room to play around with as opposed to their competitors Marvel Studios. Unless they can map out their cinematic universe or make a deal like Sony did with Marvel, then Fox is relegated to using just the Fantastic Four and X-Men properties. The former had a reboot recently, which just tanked at the box office and was panned by critics and audiences alike. Then, Fantastic Four‘s director Josh Trank came out a day before the film’s release criticizing Fox for their interference and claiming the studio prevented everyone from seeing his vision of the film. Days later, numerous production problems were revealed, and that Trank tried to control what the cast would say during the film’s press junket. Even a major scene that was shown in trailers was omitted from the final cut.

With Fantastic Four earning a bad reputation and low grossing box office numbers, it was almost certain that there was going to be no sequel. But leave it to Simon Kinberg to hold on hope. While helping promote The Martian at the Toronto International Film Festival, the producer talked about being “really focused” on making a “second one.” More on the possibility of Fantastic Four 2 in the story below.

Thing in Fantastic Four (2015)

This might sound like a severe understatement, but 20th Century Fox’s contractually obligated Fantastic Four reboot is not really performing to the expectations of anyone except perhaps those of us who have followed its troubled development for years and viewed the underwhelming trailers.

The studio’s latest attempt to launch their other major Marvel Comics property as a sequel-ready franchise to rival their X-Men series has been slaughtered by critics, pilloried by audiences, and right now, nothing short of the news that Fox has entered negotiations with Marvel Studios to retake ownership of the First Family of the House of Ideas’ cinematic destiny will satisfy the Fantastic Four’s furiously frothing fan base.

More ‘Fantastic Four’ Production Problems Unveiled; Josh Trank Lawyers Up

The Fantastic Four movie 2015 Miles Teller as Reed Richards Mr. Fantastic

There is no hiding the fact that Fantastic Four did not meet anyone’s expectations, unless those expectations were failing ones. Fox stands to lose up to $60 million dollars due to its underwhelming $26.2 million dollar debut, and things could get worse if they continue to progress the way they are now.

Because of director Josh Trank‘s volatile and revealing tweet, we were shown the ugly side of studio interference. But it’s not as though Trank is without blame. Throughout the production of the film, the filmmaker has been hostile to both the cast and creative team, even to the homeowners who rented the house to him. Through great effort, PR tried to make it seem as though there was no validity to any of these rumors with exclusive interviews of Trank and Kinberg sitting together as if they were friends, but word was getting out, and there was no stopping the inevitable.

The Fantastic Four reboot then confirmed what we all knew, there was a huge shift in tone and wigs in the final third act of the film. On Monday, we learned of the many problems that plagued the production of the film were aired out. Now a new report is out revealing just how problematic Trank has been during the filming process, and it is supporting previous reports of his strange behavior. More on this below.

Josh Trank Tweets ‘Fantastic Four’ Frustration, Deletes Soon After

Fantastic Four Header

We’ve all heard in the past about studios interfering with directors on the direction of a film. With most superhero films being in a shared universe, these directors are pressured into being a part of something they don’t really want to be a part of. Alan Taylor expressed his frustrations while filming Thor: The Dark World. Joss Whedon didn’t get to add any of the characters he wanted to in Avengers: Age of Ultron. Edgar Wright directing Ant-Man didn’t work out. But this doesn’t apply just to films from Marvel Studios.

With Josh Trank‘s reimagining of Fantastic Four out in theaters, the film is getting hit with wave after wave of negative reviews, and as of this post has a 10% on the Rotten Tomatoes Tomatometer. Not entirely unexpected given the harsh criticism the film received from the first trailer and the behind-the-scenes allegations. So far everything points towards Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation taking the top spot at the box office this weekend, which is disappointing news to Fox and everyone else who worked on Fantastic Four.

While there will be plenty of finger pointing when the expected disappointing numbers come out, Trank felt that it was necessary to clear the air by doing some major backpedaling on his own movie. And then he proceeded to be muzzled. More on the story below.

Fox is making one last marketing push to promote the odd Fantastic Four. The film has gone through a few marketing struggles, with some acting uninterested after seeing the first two trailers, while some dedicated fans expressed their outrage towards how the marketing team descriptions changed the team’s powers.

In just a few weeks, though, the film will come out, and the studio has released one final trailer (which happens to be the same trailer shown at Comic-Con) to convince us that this is the Fantastic Four that fans have been waiting for. Check out the trailer below.
