Welcome to #TrailerChest, where we're taking a sneak peek at the brand new trailer for Rocketman.

Plot's it all about? Whether you loved it or hated it, there is no way to ignore just how amazingly well Bohemian Rhapsody has done. Between winning the Best Picture at the Golden Globes, and getting the nomination for the same at the Oscars, plus the fact it is currently closing in on $900 million at the box office... Yeah, it was a success.

Dexter Fletcher was the guy they brought in to finish work on Bohemian Rhapsody to replace original director Bryan Singer, so the fact that he is the guy behind Rocketman can only bode well for this movie's success, too.

Kingsman star Taron Egerton is in the leading man role, and he looks right at home in those vertigo-inducing platforms and full-on plumage both on and off stage.

It is also cleverly opening on the same day as both the Will Smith-starring Aladdin and animation sequel The Secret Life Of Pets 2, so it will be providing the parents with some much-needed counter-programming.
