rocketman blu-ray

Rocketman, the fantasy musical biopic inspired by the life of Elton John, arrives on Blu-ray this week. And it’s pretty damn good! Rather than take a conventional biopic approach, Rocketman tackles Elton John‘s life and career through the style of a traditional musical, complete with fantastical music numbers. In honor of the Rocketman Blu-ray release, we’re giving away a prize pack that includes the 4K Blu-ray release, and more. Details below.

See all the stuff in that pic above? That can all be yours, except for the confetti – we’re not shipping that, sorry. Since Rocketman comes to Blu-ray this week, we’re giving away the above prize pack that includes a karaoke mic, a jacket, a tote bag, some stylish shades, and of course, the movie itself – on 4K Blu-ray, no less. How can you win? Simple. To enter to win, fire off an email HERE with the subject line ROCKETMAN CONTEST. A winner will be picked at random. U.S. residents only (sorry)! That’s it!
