‘ELVIS‘ is coming to the cinema from Warner Bros. Pictures and the Oscar-nominated filmmaker Baz Luhrman directs a movie that explores the life and music of Elvis Presleystarring austin butler and the Oscar winner Tom Hanks.
“IMHO his performance is unprecedented and FINALLY done with precision and respect. If he doesn’t win an Oscar for this, I’ll eat my own foot haha“, this has been the withering statement made by LisaMarie Presley, the only daughter of Elvis and Priscilla Presley.
The interpretation of austin butler has had a very positive impact on Lisa-Marie Presley who also said that “You can feel and witness Paz’s pure love, care and respect for my father throughout this beautiful film, and it is finally something that I, my children and their children can be forever proud of.“.
As a fully cinematic drama, the story of Elvis (Butler) is seen through the prism of his complicated relationship with his enigmatic manager, Colonel Tom Parker (Hank).
As told by Parker, the film delves into the complex dynamic between the two over the course of 20 years, from Presley’s rise to fame to his unprecedented stardom, against the backdrop of the evolving cultural landscape and America’s loss of innocence. At the center of that journey is one of the significant and influential people in Elvis’s life, Priscilla Presley (played by Olivia DeJonge).
