Rocketman had its world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival on 16 May ,  and was theatrically released in the United Kingdom on 22 May In March , it was reported that Paramount Pictures was pressuring director Dexter Fletcher and producer Matthew Vaughn to cut a sex scene between Taron Egerton and Richard Madden , so that the film could receive a PG rating in the United States, as influenced by the financial success of Bohemian Rhapsody the year prior.

Safaruddin Mohammad Ali, the head of the country's Film Censorship Board, said "We do not allow any scenes that promote LGBTQ in films that are for public viewing", adding that "Although it is about the real life of Elton John, it is not for him to allow the public to see whatever he does or whatever activities he indulges in that is not our culture".
The film was banned in Samoa , a conservative Christian nation. Principal Censor Leiataua Niuapu, of the country's Censorship Board , explained: "It's a good story, in that it's about an individual trying to move on in life.
He [John] went through a difficult family life and managed to move on and become very successful. But there are acts that are not good for public viewing and against the law.
The reason given was his "anti-religious sentiments", though Film Stories journalist Simon Brew argued that the ban "seemed pretty clear it was more to do with [John's] sexuality".
In October , Entertainment Weekly digital director Shana Krochmal accused Delta Air Lines of removing "almost every reference" to John's sexuality in the version of the film shown on the airline, including scenes of kissing and gay sex.
In response, a Delta spokesperson said that "Delta's content parameters do not in any way ask for the removal of homosexual content from the film" and that "We value diversity and inclusion as core to our culture and our mission and will review our processes to ensure edited video content doesn't conflict with these values".

At its Cannes Film Festival premiere, the film received a standing ovation. Christy Lemire of RogerEbert. As Rocketman was not meant to be a chronologically precise documentary film , a creative license was taken with the timing or specifics of the real people or historical events depicted in the film.
The timeline of Elton John and Bernie Taupin's friendship and career is altered to an extent, as the first song they wrote together after they met in was "Scarecrow", while "Border Song" wasn't written until John and Taupin also spent two years working as staff songwriters for Dick James, beginning in , and created tracks for artists such as Roger Cook and Lulu , with the first album of the pair's music being 's Empty Sky.
Dick James was the one who encouraged then-Reggie Dwight to choose a stage name, and on 7 May , he legally changed his name to Elton Hercules John; however, John is shown auditioning for James by playing " Daniel " and " I Guess That's Why They Call It the Blues ", but the songs weren't written until and , respectively.
While Elton John adopted his first name from a Bluesology bandmate saxophonist Elton Dean , he did not change his last name while glancing at a photo of John Lennon : the last name was inspired by Elton's early mentor and friend, Long John Baldry , who had hired Bluesology as his backup band in Elton John admired Baldry as one of the few people in the music scene who were both openly gay and highly esteemed.
John ended up sinking into a suicidal depression due to stress faced with the prospect of living a domestic life in the suburbs, and attempted to kill himself in his kitchen from inert gas asphyxiation , but failed to do so leaving the kitchen windows open, and being found by Bernie Taupin.

The guitar player at the Troubadour concert is fictional: Elton John did not have a guitarist until Davey Johnstone in He proposed to her on 10 February in Australia, and they married in Sydney on Valentine's Day of the same year.
Elton John's half-brother Geoff Dwight disputed the characterization of John's father, Stanley Dwight, stating, "My dad was kind and gentle.
He spoke his mind but encouraged us all, including Elton, to do what we were good at. As a boy, when he started supporting Watford , it was my father who took him to the matches.
He was a lovely man, a good father, and a loving husband. On the other hand, the portrayal of Elton John's mother, Sheila, was seen as being far more accurate.
She did not allow him to get an Elvis Presley styled haircut, though Elton idolized the American's look. The depiction of Dick James was disputed by musician Caleb Quaye , who was a member of Elton's former band Bluesology.
He was an old-school music man but was smartly dressed, you never heard a cuss word out of him. He was like a father, he gave us an opportunity to learn our craft.
We only ever tried to do the best for him and to promote his career. I really am very upset that he has turned on people in this way.
They basically depict my father in the film completely opposite to the way he was in real life. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

An Entertainment Tonight interviewer gave Elton a hug after seeing the film , declaring, "I don't think people understand the things you have been through in your life!
I mean, I haven't seen the movie, but I know what's in it. In a Paramount featurette, Elton said he was still stunned that he had a movie at Cannes.
I'm looking at me. And that's what moves me — this is me. He also defended the young actor against criticism saying a straight actor shouldn't or couldn't play a gay man.
I can live with it. Talking to Variety , John did admit he had difficulty with some parts of the film. The drug stuff I can handle because I know I did it," he said.
He added that, as he gets older, he understands now what his parents were going through, and that while he's not angry or bitter about it, "It did leave a scar and that scar took a long time to heal — and maybe it will never heal totally.
That touched me a great deal because we've been together almost 50 years — to have a relationship be so strong and so loving means a lot in this business.

For my liking, the last twenty minutes or so are executed too tidily. While John and Bernie Taupin are well rounded and fully realised characters, the other characters, despite being well acted by particularly Bryce Dallas Howard, felt like underdeveloped caricatures i.
However, 'Rocketman' has so many things working in its favour and more so than the bad. First and foremost, Taron Egerton.
A totally committed and quite brilliant performance full of confidence, swagger, flair, subtlety and nuance, not to mention a great singing voice, treating John with respect without impersonating him.
The scene where he opens up to his mother and his reaction to her cold response was heart-breaking in particular.
Jamie Bell is the other performance worthy of note and the relationship between John and Taupin is handled beautifully, with the right amount of intensity but also taste.
One can tell how well they clicked and feel their mutual affection and it really drives the film and at times the heart of it. It looks great too, beautifully photographed and John's flamboyant costumes are a sight to behold, one of the bigger examples being that unlike-anything-you've-seen-before one in the therapy.
The songs are as magnificent as one expects and staged with a lot of brio and confidence without being overblown. The very moving "Your Song", performance and the understated staging, being a big standout in this regard, another powerful part being with what is done with the opening of "Yellow Brick Road", done so truthfully and mirroring what is going on at that present moment without spelling it out too much and showing how much Taupin cares for John.
Heck, the film even manages to make "Crocodile Rock" tolerable in one of the film's more exuberant moments. The script manages to be both entertaining and sincere, underneath all the flashiness there is depth too.
There may be conventional moments in the story a lot of biopics though are like that , but the scenes showing off John's unique showmanship are difficult to look away from and the story detailing John's troubled personal life at the time is powerful.
A great job is done showing who John is, what he is and how his mind worked when dealing with troubles and when he was writing and performing.
Dexter Fletcher's direction is adept. Summing up, a very, very good and often great film that just misses out on being brilliant. Looking for something to watch?
