    Arriving in theaters about six months apart, it’s almost impossible not to find a multitude of similarities between the Elton John biopic “Rocketman” (Paramount) and the Freddie Mercury/Queen biopic “Bohemian Rhapsody”.

Additionally, it was actor/director Dexter Fletcher, at the helm of  “Rocketman”, who completed “Bohemian Rhapsody” when director Bryan Singer was fired.
