Taron's Still Standing

This news broke last week when I was sick so this is catch-up -- the Elton John bio-pic Rocketman with Taron Egerton and Richard Madden has gotten its home release date! It's hitting the streaming platforms next week on August 6th, and then it hits blu-ray on August 27th. If you missed my review way back when click here for that -- I liked the film quite a lot, which was a bit of surprise given the whispers of straight-washing and, you know, me generally not being a musicals kinda guy. Turned out the first point wasn't true and the second wasn't either. Lies, all lies! Anyway pre-order your copies at the link above but if you need further convincing I'll share all of the disc's special features right on here after the jump...
