Elton John biopic "Rocketman" is launching two weeks early

Want the chance to see the Elton John biopic Rocketman before it officially hits theaters? Fandango's got you covered.

The movie site is teaming up with Paramount Pictures to offer tickets to May 18 screenings of the film at nearly 400 theaters nationwide, nearly two weeks ahead of its May 31 release date.

Tickets for the early access screenings are on sale now.

Rocketman, a musical fantasy based on the pop-rock legend's life, stars Taron Egerton as Elton, Jamie Bell as John's songwriting partner, Bernie Taupin and Richard Madden as the singer's one-time manager, John Reid.

As previously reported, the Rocketman soundtrack will be released on Friday, May 24. The album mainly features new versions of classic Elton tunes sung by Egerton, and also includes a brand-new song titled "(I'm Gonna) Love Me Again" that was co-written by John and Taupin and is sung by Elton and Taron.
