Welcome to “Rocketman” The Birth of an Epic Musical Odyssey


Fresh from its successful premiere in Cannes where it was greeted by a wild, standing ovation, Paramount Pictures' Rocketman is an epic musical fantasy about the incredible human story of Elton John's breakthrough years. 


(Watch the film's new TV spot at https://youtu.be/4QflYUNWVko.)


"This movie is about when I started to become famous," says Elton John. "It was an extraordinary and surreal time, and that's how I wanted the film to be."


It should come as no surprise that conventional movie making was never going to work for the telling of Elton John's life story – it simply could not contain it. Elton's transformation from the shy, working-class piano prodigy Reginald Dwight into a global music superstar was as tempestuous, outrageous, and plain dangerous as it was inspirational and brave. No regular movie was ever going to do it justice.


Welcome to Rocketman – an epic musical odyssey that blurs the lines of fantasy and reality, fuses the worlds of music, fame and fashion, and stamps a glittery platform heel down on the cinematic rulebook. Rocketman takes audiences on an uncensored journey through the life of an icon, with Elton's most beloved songs – reimagined and updated in breakthrough musical and dramatic performances by the young cast – propelling and shaping the story.


"The idea," says its director, Dexter Fletcher, "was to create something that would genuinely explode off the screen, a riotous joy-ride of imagination, celebration and drama."


In Rocketman, Elton John is played by Taron Egerton, delivering an astonishing performance that has seen him record new versions of some of John's most famous songs. As the film follows Elton from his English hometown of Pinner and along the yellow brick road of fame, addiction and heartbreak, we will also meet the mother he had a troubled relationship with (Bryce Dallas Howard), his manager and onetime lover, John Reid (Richard Madden), and his legendary lyricist Bernie Taupin (Jamie Bell), the best friend and creative partner of over 50 years without whom John might not have survived. As Elton, who gave the cast and crew of Rocketman free reign to tell his story, says: "My life has been pretty crazy. The lows were very low, the highs were very high. Unfortunately, there wasn't much balance in between."


For Rocketman producer, Matthew Vaughn, it was important to find the right way to tell the story of a completely unordinary life. And he discovered it on his first read of Lee Hall's screenplay. "Lee had done this magnificent job," says Vaughn, "of creating a musical that isn't really a musical, a biopic that isn't a biopic, a fantasy that is based on reality and a reality that is based on fantasy."


As young Elton wrestles with his private image, his sexuality, his childhood troubles and his many adult addictions, he very publicly finds escape through the music that sees him explode onto the global scene. He is empowered by an extraordinary stage persona with outrageous costumes, and a particularly unique view of the world through tinted, wide-eyed glasses. In the words of Rocketman's acclaimed music director, Giles Martin, "Elton hits the piano keys as if to punch back at the planet."


The result is a film (over 10 years in the making) that is as extraordinary as its subject. "What these guys have done with my story is just astonishing," says John. "It's brutally honest and doesn't pull any punches, but I can't wait for audiences to see it and, hopefully, love it as much as I do."


In Philippine cinemas June 19Rocketman is distributed in the Philippines by United International Pictures through Columbia Pictures.  Follow us on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/uipmoviesph/; Twitter at https://twitter.com/uipmoviesph  and Instagram at https://www.instagram.com/uipmoviesph/

Miss Universe Catriona Gray is the Face of the New Smart Signature Plans

Catriona Gray's journey to the Miss Universe crown is an inspiring story of a woman who has reimagined herself to win the most coveted beauty pageant title, bringing pride and honor to our country.


Make no mistake about it, Catriona could have simply rested on her laurels with her Top 5 finish in Miss World 2016, plus a flourishing career as a commercial model. But, fueled by the support of family and friends, the now 25-year old beauty queen decided to embark on a much bigger dream that revealed the goal slayer in her – someone who is confident with her vision, and put every ounce of her energy to realize it. The rest, as they say, is history.


"Catriona's inspiring story and her disposition as the ultimate goal slayer makes her the perfect ambassador for Smart Signature, a new mobile experience that prioritizes customers," said Oscar A. Reyes, Jr., PLDT-Smart SVP and Consumer Business Market Development Head.


"Designed to cater to a new generation of goal slayers like Catriona, Smart Signature keeps up with the fast-paced digital lifestyle of our customers and empowers them as they tick off more milestones in their career or life," he added.


"I'm very goal-oriented, and once I've set my mind on something, I put my heart and soul to it, and make sure I have all the tools to make it happen," said Catriona, whose dedication showed in her hands-on approach to preparing for an international title: from putting together her own team or designers, trainers and creatives to displaying her proud Filipino heritage in her captivating national costume and now iconic gowns.


"This is why I am thrilled to represent Smart Signature, which empowers everyone with the digital experience they need to achieve more and realize a much better version of themselves. With Smart Signature, we have one less thing to worry about while pursuing our goals and making a difference."


Tech-savvy beauty queen


Catriona uses digital platforms not only to connect with family, friends, and fans, but as an effective way to get her voice out there as an advocate for educating the youth and raising HIV/AIDS awareness.


But what else does the most beautiful woman in the world do when she's online? For starters, she listens to music. "I never like it when it's quiet. So, I stream music all the time," she shared. She also enjoys watching videos, especially during her downtime. Here's a fun fact: She likes watching beauty and make-up videos online, and even trained to do her own make-up as part of her preparation for the MISS UNIVERSE® competition.


As an only child who lives away from her parents, and with a hectic travel schedule, she also heavily relies on mobile apps to constantly keep in touch with family and friends.


Always a go-getter, Catriona is ready to embark on her new role as endorser for Smart Signature. It's going to be a hectic reign, but it's a journey that she has prepared for all her life, and one that she hopes will inspire more Filipinos.


"I would love to share to people that my story is not an overnight success, and there were years that I really struggled. But I never gave up," she revealed. "I always play to my own strengths. You need to find a circle of people that believe in what your goals are. And in this digital age, you need a mobile partner that will always prioritize your needs."
