Warner Bros. has released an official trailer for Elvis, an upcoming biopic starring Austin Butler as the King of Rock and Roll and Tom Hanks as his manager. Let’s take a look.
This looks really good. I remember watching Butler on Nickelodeon in the late 2000s and to see him acting opposite Hanks now is pretty cool. Fingers crossed Butler nails the role. This could definitely be his breakout performance.
Baz Luhrmann’s “Elvis” explores the life and music of Elvis Presley (Butler), seen through the prism of his complicated relationship with his enigmatic manager, Colonel Tom Parker (Hanks). The story delves into the complex dynamic between Presley and Parker spanning over 20 years, from Presley’s rise to fame to his unprecedented stardom, against the backdrop of the evolving cultural landscape and loss of innocence in America. Central to that journey is one of the most significant and influential people in Elvis’s life, Priscilla Presley (DeJonge).
Elvis hits theaters June 24, 2022.
