Elton John kicks off Tribeca Film Festival

Elton John kicked off the 10th annual Tribeca Film Festival at World Financial Plaza Wednesday night with a slew of hits before the premiere of Cameron Crowe's documentary The Union.

"I haven't seen it yet," John said of the film, which follows he and Leon Russell as they record their collaborative album of the same name.

"When [Crowe] found out I was doing a record with Leon and was trying to resurrect my own idol, he said 'How lovely I want to be there to document it.' I said of course because Cameron's a friend of mine and here we are two years later."

In attendance were (from top) Martin Scorsese, Bernie Taupin, Denis Leary, Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen, Rainn Wilson, Paul Dano and Zoe Kazan.
