Rocketman, the musical biopic about Elton John, is now available to buy from Amazon and iTunes for $19.99. The film will also be available to rent from Vudu and other services starting Tuesday, August 27.
Kingsman’s Taron Egerton plays the legendary rock star, singing such John hits “I Want Love,” “Crocodile Rock,” “Benny and the Jets,” and, of course, “Rocket Man.”
The cast also includes Billy Elliot’s Jamie Bell as Bernie Taupin, John’s longtime writing partner; Game of Thrones’ Richard Madden as John’s first manager; and Jurassic World’s Bryce Dallas Howard as John’s mother.
The streaming release includes featurettes and deleted/extended scenes, and iTunes offers exclusive rehearsal footage of “The Bitch Is Back,” as well as a look at John’s lasting impact.
Rocketman was helmed by Dexter Fletcher, who previously directed Egerton in Eddie the Eagle, the story of the underdog British ski jumper who made it all the way to the 1988 Winter Olympics.
