A thoroughly cinematic drama, Elvis’s (Butler) story is seen through the prism of his complicated relationship with his enigmatic manager, Colonel Tom Parker (Hanks). As told by Parker, the film delves into the complex dynamic between the two 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 significant and influential people in Elvis’s life, Priscilla Presley (Olivia DeJonge).

King, Xavier Samuel (“Adore,” “Love & Friendship,” “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse”) plays Scotty Moore, and Kodi Smit-McPhee (“The Power of the Dog”) plays Jimmie Rodgers Snow.

Austin Butler really does nail the role of young Elvis Presley. Just for his great looks, but also his sweet singing voice.
Don’t think I’ve ever been more excited to see a movie than this, Elvis brought me a life long love for classic rock
@AL3XPICTURES, I was 4 years old in 1956 when I caught Elvis on the Ed Sullivan Show and I too was hooked for Life especially on the “Early Elvis” ! The 1968 Special that Elvis came VERY CLOSE to NOT performing literally at the last minute when he was due to go on was also IMHO a Brilliant Performance and having Scotty Moore play “only” added to the Magic in the House during the show ! But when Tom Parker’s TRUE Colors finally came to light in his taking nothing less than SINFUL ADVANTAGE of Elvis’s high regard for Loyalty and Parker took COMPLETE ADVANTAGE of Elvis by having Elvis sign away 50% of EVERYTHING and then Marketing Elvis in Vegas as the TRUE CARNIVAL Worker Parker was NO “Colonel” but simply an Illegal Dutch Immigrant who regularly would gamble away 1/2 of the Entire Proceeds from each show I myself was affected by Elvis STILL Giving His All at the Expense of his Health from abusing Pills/Drugs 😩 Still I consider myself SO fortunate not only to have visited Graceland during a Business Trip BUT to also see Elvis LIVE IN CONCERT at the Boston Garden when I originally had NO Tickets but NOTHING was going to prevent me from seeing THAT Show and by the Grace of God I scored TWO TICKETS from a group of women at COST and I and my Sister sat 10 rows back from the Stage if memory serves me well that was 1974 ! IF You would like to read a GREAT BOOK on Elvis by Truly Great Author who did EXTENSIVE RESEARCH get “Last Train to Memphis” by Peter Guralnick SUCH A GREAT BOOK 🎶♥️‼️‼️‼️
The Oscars and Grammys never were kind to the King, don’t think that’s has changed, after this movie they will dislike him more. Just my opinion, may he wrong,but I doubt it.
Austin Butler looks like he gave every part of himself for this role. I can’t wait, I love a great performance
@Mr. Blonde Please tell us who on earth can do Elvis justice? It’s a tall order. His family love it.
@sillyme sillyyou it’s not about how much he looks like him its about the story &how it’s told & how much it captures that story
Thats what Id worry about. . .
@Ks Miles Teller would be a good choice, I think Baz did great though Austin captures the essence and can give you the feels, I just wish they CGI Elvis actual face to the movie. Some moments Austin looks real real close. I wonder how good Miles Teller could do he was one of them up for this but seeing this Austin probably is the best choice.
Seriously- THE ONE HIMSELF.
“This ain’t no nostalgia show. We’re gonna do something different.” Thank you Baz Luhrmann for doing Elvis right.
The fact that you can feel his portrayal through the screen with just these trailers is fascinating and beautiful! You can tell they all cared about the story and Elvis as an individual. Elvis was too good for us, many took advantage of his kindness and made it weakness for his own self. Can not wait to see the final product! It’s not just about giving a message, it’s about giving the right message. TCB ⚡
@Katakuri Fan What do you mean “the man”? There were many people who wrote his songs. They were paid and given writing credits every single time.
@Katakuri Fan it’s no problem, now you have the accurate information 🙂
@Robert Bethel Then I take back what I said
@Katakuri Fan I mean it was never a secret in the first place
This movie is made with so much of love and perfection every second looks like being crafted so well …… Hats off to the team and every single person who made such a masterpiece ….. ❤️ Love and support from India….
this actor’s impersonation of Elvis is actually very well done. His attractiveness and voice won the role surely! Super excited to watch this film.
@Katakuri Fan Just because someone can impersonate Elvis on stage does not mean they can play the man as he was in his everyday life. Not everyone can capture that essence. His family love the movie. They know their father and ex husband better than anyone.
@Katakuri Fan They maybe can sing one or two songs, but they will never touch Elvis the deep man and the real man behind that image. Everyone who says that ETA can do better than Austin seriously needs hid eyes checked.
not a single ETA can make u feel that Elvis vibe i dont care how much they sound alike or whatever.
After all it’s only one Elvis and thousands of weak duplicates of him.
@Katakuri Fan Yes, they can impersonate elvis as a performer but can they portray his vulnerable moments too?
@Katakuri Fan everyone has their own opinion and i respect it! I’m pretty satisfied with the trailer.
Please there are Elvis look alikes in Vegas who could do a much better job
Wow! That has Oscar buzz all over it! I can’t wait to see it in theaters!
@Yasuke the Black Samurai not all of them. Strictly Ballroom was the only exception.
It’s called Oscar bait. I think that’s all of Baz Lurhmann’s movies.
@Big Hand well, I think it’s time to wipe the slate clean…if you don’t have any other plans for the hand besides a slap.
Will Smith`s slap made the entire Oscars this year an afterthought.
What a glorious bio pic. This looks like a great movie that will honour Elvis’ memory.
I can guarantee one thing from this movie, Spotifys top charts will be filled with Elvis songs
@Katakuri Fan He owns them all.
@Katakuri Fan But he sang them better than anyone ever could. Keep up the hate 😁
@Katakuri Fan no one owns a song….the writers write for performers and get paid….actors don’t own or write the script of a movie
@its_robzy watch the movie and the impact of this man on history and you’ll get the right answer..ii saw the real deal in 74 at the Hilton in Las Vegas when I was 12…never experienced anything like it since..you have no idea what it was like..beyond words..looks like this movie is going to the convey the magic and colossal superstardown of this man as it was
@Katakuri Fan They’re all his, boy. All of them. TCB.
