Rocketman, the highly anticipated biopic telling the incredible story of Sir Elton John, captivated audiences (and this reviewer) — not quite to the level of 2018’s Bohemian Rhapsody, perhaps due in part to its R-rating, but still a more than respectable showing at the box office.
Now that the film’s theatrical release has come and gone, it was announced this week that Rocketman will land on Digital platforms on August 6, with a physical Blu-ray/DVD release coming later, on August 27, via Paramount Home Entertainment.
As Movieweb broke down, the Rocketman home release will come with 75 minutes of bonus material:
The Digital, 4K Ultra HD, and Blu-ray releases are packed with over 75 minutes of must-see bonus content, including four extended musical sequences introduced by director Dexter Fletcher that showcase even more of the spectacular singing and dancing by Taron Egerton and the cast. The releases also include breakthrough moments not seen in theaters with 10 deleted and extended scenes with an introduction by Dexter Fletcher; sing-along tracks of 13 select songs; behind-the-scenes footage and interviews with Elton John, the cast, and filmmakers; intimate footage from recording studio sessions; plus, a Rocketman jukebox that allows viewers to skip straight to the music. Also, for a limited time while supplies last, the Combo Packs will include a collectible booklet with a special message from Elton John for fans of Rocketman.
