Biopics are all the rage right now, and the latest to enter the fray is Rocketman. The Elton John retrospective stars Taron Egerton and chronicles the legendary icon's meteoric rise to stardom. Even when the first teaser rolled around in the Fall of 2018, it was clear that Egerton had positively nailed his performance. The real question, though, was how much help did he have along the way?
