Now here’s an epic trailer to reflect both the director’s style and, of course, Elvis Presley himself! From Strictly Ballroom, through to Romeo + Juliet, Moulin Rouge and The Great Gatsby, not only has Baz Luhrmann created very unique visions of the stories he’s telling, you know he won’t fail to make it look extravagant and feel almost other-worldly, something that could really fit such an icon as Elvis.
Starring Austin Butler as the eponymous legend, and Tom Hanks as his manager, Colonel Tom Parker, we’re told we’ll be taken through his life and music via the prism of their relationship. ELVIS will also span 20-years, right from Presley’s rise to fame and that behemoth of change, but it’ll also include a changing cultural landscape in the States, and everything that came with it, not forgetting the importance of Priscilla Presley (played here by Olivia DeJonge) in his life. The film also stars Kodi Smit-McPhee, Dacre Montgomery, Kelvin Harrison Jr., David Wenham, and more.
Epic, right? I think the word is correctly used this time, take a watch and let us know what you think in the comments below:
