"What you will be getting when you walk into an inevitably overstuffed movie theater is something singular that reflects our age in a way that none of the MCU films that preceded it have-indeed, very few Hollywood spectacles ever have," according to Oliver Jones of the Observer, while the San Diego Reader's Matthew Lickona said, "The MCU will go on and on, but this chapter - and the American pragmatism vs. American ideals bromance that drove it - have well and truly come to their 'Excelsior! Nuff said!' moment."

The story of Elton John's life, from his years as a prodigy at the Royal Academy of Music through his influential and enduring musical partnership with Bernie Taupin.
Set to be released on Friday, May 31, "Rocketman" already has a Tomatometer Score of 89% on Rotten Tomatoes. Rolling Stone's Peter Travers said, "The young, gay, conflicted and addicted Elton John is brought to life by an electrifying, Oscar-caliber Taron Egerton and Dexter Fletcher's dazzling cinematic inventiveness. Forget the cliches, this one you don't want to miss," and the New York Times's A.O. Scott noted, "The point of 'Rocketman' isn't self-aggrandizement. It's fan service of an especially and characteristically generous kind."

Pikes Peak Ave.) through Wednesday, June 5; Icon Cinema Colorado Springs (1818 Spring Water Place) through Wednesday, June 5; and AMC Classic Colorado Springs 10 (1550 Pulsar Drive) through Sunday, June 2.
