    I went to school with Taron, we were in the same year too, and I couldn't be happier that he's found success through the Kingsman series, Eddie the Eagle and now this.
    This particular role couldn't be a better for for him given his musical theatre background and I know he'll kill it. The footage in the trailers look very promising.

    Considering the UK's affinity for anything musical at the moment, it's gonna take some really shitty reviews to stop this raking it in.

    Total Lifetime Grosses
    Domestic: $25,000,000 44.5%
    + Foreign: $31,200,000 55.5%
    = Worldwide: $56,200,000
    This movie had a 40 million dollar budget. The studio only thought this movie would do around 18-20 million dollars, so this was a solid number.

    Haven't heard much buzz about it either way. Been curious about it since I do like Egerton and its a fascinating period of Elton's career.

    Fun trivia - Elton John's manager John Reid is played by Richard Madden. In Bohemian Rhapsody, the same individual was played by Aidan Gillen. Robb Stark and Littlefinger.

    Come over here, loads of advertising and media for it :haha:

    Hasn't performed as strongly as Bohemian Rhapsody but it opened against Aladdin and the limited open of Secret Life of Pets 2 so they won't be disappointed

    Its 15 rating has worked for and against it. The positive is that it's going for a completely separate audience to the previously mentioned. The negative is that BR was a 12 so it's never gonna match that with a smaller market to work from.
