Elton John Stars In Hilarious New Movie

What's better than Maude Lebowski flinging paint from a hip harness? Her kidnapping Elton John and using him as a human jukebox.

Julianne Moore, who dazzled the world with her quirky depiction of Maude Lebowski, is playing an evil drug cartel leader. But this character has a weakness: Elton John's soothing piano riffs. John plays himself in the movie, as he is held captive by Moore and forced to play his songs in a nearly empty theater, night after night. Of course, Elton isn't taking this lying down. There's plenty of British (and American) profanity in this new comedy, that comes complete with robot guard dogs and Elton John (draped in feathers) kicking some bad-guy butt!

Check out the full synopsis.

John isn't in the trailer, so it looks like they're keeping his appearance a surprise.
