Here Are 3 New Images of Taron Egerton as Elton John from 'Rocketman'

Dexter Fletcher delivered a box-office hit with Bohemian Rhapsody last year after taking over the director's role from Bryan Singer after FOX fired him, and he's not slowing down with the music biopics anytime soon.  His next feature film Rocketman will chronicle the life of one Sir Elton John, played by Taron Egerton (Kingsmen, Sing!), and we've got three new photos!
