Paramount Pictures has released the trailer for the new Elton John film, Rocketman. The two-and-a-half minute preview is the first to be released for the film, following a short teaser clip released back in October.

Watch the trailer now in the player below.

Rocketman, which hits theaters May 31st, is a self-described “musical fantasy,” rather than a biopic, and promises to give the “uncensored human story of Sir Elton John’s breakthrough years.”

The film was directed by Dexter Fletcher, who took over directing the Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody part way through filming when Bryan Singer was fired. Elton John is listed as an executive producer on the film and his husband, David Furnish, is listed as a producer.

Rocketman features Taron Egerton (Robin Hood, Sing) in the role of John. Paramount previously released a number of photos of the actor in various scenes from the movie.
