An exhaustively cinematic drama, Elvis’s (Butler) story is seen through the prism of his complex partnership with his enigmatic supervisor, Colonel Tom Parker (Hanks). As related by Parker, the film delves into the complex dynamic between the two spanning over 2 decades, from Presley’s rise to stardom to his unheard of fame, against the backdrop of the evolving cultural panorama and loss of innocence in America. Central to that expedition is one of the vital and prestigious folks in Elvis’s life, Priscilla Presley (Olivia DeJonge).

  1. Too bad Pedo Hanks is in this.

  2. The Random Jack Show

    It’s fun to think about the fact that Elvis was out there for his time, and now he is tame in comparison to today. So I wonder how many out there people for today’s time, will be tame in comparison to the future.

  3. Austin seems to have captured the essence of that young man from Tupelo, who made his home in Memphis, and gave his soul to all those around him & until he could literally give no more.

  4. I’m crying just watching the trailer, wait till I watch the movie in June ! 🍿❤️🤩

  5. Goddam this looks AMAZING!

  6. The movie’s cast is up on IMDB. Going by that list, this film won’t feature a pilled up Elvis’ iconic meeting with a perplexed President Nixon, no year long affair with co-star, Ann Margret and no Linda Thompson, who was Elvis’ live in girlfriend for over 4 years. Disappointing! Critics and miserable Twitter dwellers will probably savage this movie

  7. i’m so excited for this movie and i just can’t wait.

  8. Doja cat original song ruins the authenticity of this movie

  9. name person just hoping to ride on star power alone.

  10. Tatyana Abadzhieva

    A lot of ppl say that is the worst cast ever.I think is the best.I read that Austin put a lot effort to speak ,sing and move like Elvis.And he is doing it really good.There should be an Oscar here.
    It’s seems like great movie and looking forward to it.😊
