Warner Bros has released a brand new trailer for Baz Luhrmann’s Elvis biopic, showing off more music and dazzling performances.
I can’t say I’ve been greatly anticipating the Elvis movie (biopics in general aren’t big for me), but I’ll be damned if this trailer doesn’t whip wholesale ass.
On top of the trailer, they’ve also revealed the various artist who will be bringing the soundtrack to life:
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).
Elvis is set to hit theaters on June 24, 2022.
