Meanwhile, Taron Egerton has said that Rocketman is "more grown up" than Bohemian Rhapsody.

The actor, who stars as Sir Elton John in the upcoming reimagining film of his, has praised Rami Malek's portrayal of Freddie Mercury in Bohemian Rhapsody and the film as a whole, but thinks the two biopics will be very different.

Speaking to ET Canada, Egerton said: "That movie (Bohemian Rhapsody) is so fun, it gets you on your feet, the end especially is so rousing and so exciting."

"Rocketman's a different kind of film, he mused. "I think it's a more grown up movie in the sense that it deals with some more grown up themes."Rocketman is set for release in the UK on 24 May.
