Rocketman

The first full trailer for Rocketman was released today...



I don't really know much about Elton John's earlier career (other than he was a singer), so it'll definitely be fun to watch. It'll be interesting to see if this biopic does as well as Bohemian Rhapsody did around the world.

We'll find out when the movie opens on May 31st.

A behind-the-scenes featurette for the upcoming Elton John movie, Rocketman, was released today. In it, we get to see some new clips from the movie and hear Taron Egerton record some of Tiny Dancer.



He's definitely got a similar sound as Elton, so it just might work out.

We'll find out when the movie opens on May 31st.

Albert Finney

Sad news today...

Oscar-nominated actor Albert Finney, one of the great British actors of his generation who made a worldwide name for himself in 1963’s Tom Jones and maintained a strong career through 2012’s Skyfall, died Thursday in London. He was 82. 

Among his Oscar-nominated performances were roles in Tom Jones, Murder on the Orient Express, The Dresser, Under the Volcano and Erin Brockovich.Other highlights of his shape-shifting career include Two for the Road (1967), Scrooge (1970), Annie (1982), The Dresser (1983), Miller’s Crossing (1990), Erin Brockovich (2000), Big Fish (2003), The Bourne Ultimatum (2007), Before the Devil Knows You’re Dead (2007) and The Bourne Legacy (2012). 

While his early reputation was staked largely on drama, Finney found some of what would become his most beloved roles in outsized comedic performances, from his mean-as-dirt Ebenezer Scrooge in the 1970 musical version of the Dickens classic, to his Daddy Warbucks in Annie.

He was a great actor and had a very long and successful career.

He will be missed.
