We're still getting used to to seeing "Kingsman" star Taron Egerton as Elton John in that "Rocketman" photo. But now we have a lot more footage to enjoy.
As Egerton promised, the first trailer dropped bright and early Monday morning. The teaser trailer features Egerton as EJ singing "Rocket Man."
We were wondering how they were going to do the songs -- just use Elton's voice over Egerton lip sync, or have the "Sing" actor do his own singing. Sounds like the latter idea won out, with Egerton's voice coming through. We knew he could sing, but it's another thing to sing as Elton John. So far, so good?
Here's the trailer:
