Elvis Presley Fans Got Another Look At The Upcoming Biopic Elvis, by director Baz Luhrmann. In this latest teaser, audiences learn more about the complicated and tumultuous relationship the king of rock and roll (Austin Butler) shared with his enigmatic manager, Colonel Tom Parker (Tom Hanks).
Not only looking at the incredible impact Elvis and his music had on the world, the film will also tell the story of the legendary entertainer’s more intimate relationships with the most important and influential people in his life, including Priscilla Presley (Olivia DeJonge).
The star cast also includes award-winning theater star Helen Thomson as Gladys, Elvis’ mother, and Richard Roxburgh as Elvis’ father Vernon, alongside Luke Bracey, Natasha Bassett, David Wenham , Kelvin Harrison Jr., Xavier Samuel, Kodi Smith-Mcphee. , Dacre Montgomery, Leon Ford, Kate Mulvany, Gareth Davies, Charles Grounds, Josh McConville and Adam Dunn.
The trailer comes after it was revealed that Elvis’ real-life granddaughter, Riley Keough, was moved to tears after watching an early cut of the film; just like his mother, Lisa Marie Presley and his grandmother, Priscilla Presley.
Speaking at the Cannes Film Festival, as part of Variety’s Women in Motion panel, Keough explained: “It was a very moving experience. It’s very intense to watch when it’s your family. It wasn’t like I don’t trust Baz in any way, but you protect your family.”
Priscilla took to Instagram earlier this month (May 2022) to share her thoughts, saying it took her and Lisa “a few days to get over the emotions” watching the film brought on.
Elvis will be released in theaters nationwide on June 24, 2022 by Warner Bros. Pictures.
