Taron Egerton Is Playing Elton John In Biopic 'Rocketman'

X-Men: Apocalypse Teaser Poster

There have been sneak peeks and images of the various characters, but the trailer for X-Men: Apocalypse is on its way. Before that drops, however, here comes the Silver Surfer-like herald of the teaser poster.

It’s a fairly basic image, showing the traditional metallic movie X looking like it’s under some serious heat, which is what our heroes will be feeling this time around thanks to Oscar Isaac’s titular threat, ready to cause trouble for James McAvoy’s Professor X, Michael Fassbender’s Magneto and the rest.

The film’s story finds our heroes split across the globe: The Prof is still trying to help mutants blend in with the world, while Raven (Jennifer Lawrence) is on her own crusade to settle matters between humans and mutants in a more violent fashion. Magneto, meanwhile, is opting for a quieter life of love in Poland. At least, that is, until Apocalypse comes a-calling and recruits him…

And the endlessly dangerous mutant is also taking on what has always been known in the comics as his “horsemen”, which in this case includes the young Storm (Alexandra Shipp), Psylocke (Olivia Munn) and Angel (Ben Hardy), who are all in bad circumstances of their own. Apocalypse, who has been in slumber for centuries, decides that the 1980s world is ripe for a reboot.

Featuring a script by Lee Hall, Rocketman will follow the career of the artist formerly known as Reginald Dwight, from a prodigy at the Royal Academy of Music to a global superstar, through his influential and enduring musical partnership w…
