The Elton John musical is released in UK cinemas today, following a string of positive reviews. Rocketman is a fantasy biopic that charts the singer’s rise, fall and redemption from his humble roots to the excesses of fame and fortune. Kingsman star Egerton plays John in a stunning and convincing performance. But after the music stops, is there an end credits scene?
Sadly there is not a post-credits scene at the end of Rocketman. Nevertheless, it’s worth sitting through the credits for more musical treats.
This includes the duet of John himself and Egerton performing new song (I’m Gonna) Love Me Again.
On Monday evening, John himself attended the world premiere of Rocketman, where he revealed how emotional it was seeing the movie.
The 72-year-old legend told the BBC: “Very emotional, I mean you’re seeing your life as it was.”

John continued: “You know, it was fantasy, I mean the sequences are fantasy.
“But the reality was that’s how I was. I’m just relieved, god I’m so glad I don’t have to do that anymore.
“I’m so glad I can wake up in the morning, see my children, see David and not have to deal with that awful behaviour and that awful addiction.”
Meanwhile, John gave Egerton some game-changing advice for Rocketman.
Speaking to Variety, John’s husband said: “I think the most exciting thing about Taron as a singer throughout the whole process is how he grew.
“When he started he was very theatrical. He would sing words like he was on a [Broadway] stage. Rock stars don’t sing like that.
“Elton said to Taron, ‘Look, you need to relax more. Don’t try and copy me. Feel the spirit of the song’.”
