Elvis Movie Teaser Reveals Full Trailer for Baz Luhrmann Movie Coming Thursday


Fans can expect Elvisa biopic about a legendary musician Elvis Presley from Baz Luhrmann (Red Mill!, Gatsby the magnificent), becoming one of the most anticipated films of the summer. The director released a preview of the film via Twitter ahead of the full trailer, which arrives on Thursday. Luhrmann makes the most of 15 seconds, putting his cinematic style across in addition to seemingly confirming the biopic’s commitment to telling the star’s full story, which tragically “ended in a flash.”

The film is set to explore the “King of Rock and Roll”‘s entire life, from his military career to his successful exploration of multiple genres, from pop to country to rock and roll. Elvis stars Austin Butler (Once upon a time in Hollywood, The Shannara Chronicles) in the lead role, opposite tom hank (Forrest Gump) as Presley’s manager, Colonel Tom Parker. Butler has beaten many stars, including Ansel Elgort, Harry Styles, Aaron Taylor Johnsonand Miles Teller.


Luhrmann has been attached to this biopic since 2014, but the film only really gained traction when Hanks signed on in early 2019. Elvis has undoubtedly gained momentum through the success and release of musical biopics such as Bohemian Rhapsody and Rocketman. It’s been nine years since Luhrmann directed a movie, despite being the creator of the short-lived Netflix series Lowering. His last movie, Gatsby the magnificent, received mixed critical reception but remains his highest-grossing film to date. I hope there is something special with it Elvisas his long-term commitment to the project undoubtedly speaks to his passion and desire to make the film.
