Rocketman will screen in 400 theaters on May 18, just after a Cannes bow and well before its theatrical release in the States on May 31.

Fandango is teaming with Paramount Pictures to offer exclusive advance screenings for the Elton John biopic that stars Taron Egerton.

The Web site’s VIP rewards program members will get an exclusive sneak peek at nearly 400 theaters nationwide via cinema chains like AMC Theatres, Regal, Cinemark, Marcus Theatres, Arclight Cinemas/Pacific Theatres and National Amusements.

Tickets for Fandango’s exclusive engagement via its Early Access Screening program are on sale now. So are tickets for the film’s May 31st wide release.

“Our first two early access screenings generated great buzz for How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World and Shazam! We think Fandango VIP members and fans will be delighted to have the opportunity to see this highly-anticipated Elton John musical fantasy two weeks before its release date,” the company’s president, Paul Yanover, said yesterday.
