The film, which stars Taron Egerton, traces John's rise from the Royal Academy of Music toward becoming one of pop music's biggest stars.
"There are moments in a rock star's life that define who he is," manager John Reid says in the clip below. "Where there was darkness, there is now you – and it's going to be a wild ride."
Reid is portrayed by Richard Madden. Egerton does his own singing in the movie; that's him performing Elton John's Top 10 1972 smash "Rocket Man" in the trailer.
