Elvis Trailer Released Showing Austin Butler as Iconic Musician







The first official trailer for the Elvis biopic, simply titled Elvis, from director Baz Luhrmann was released, showing audiences their first look at Austin Butler in the titular role of the iconic musician. Tom Hanks stars alongside Butler as Colonel Tom Parker, Presley’s manager, and is the film’s supposed antagonist.

The film’s production spanned two full years due to the COVID-19 pandemic and even led to Hanks contracting the virus on set in early 2020. The film was originally slated for a 2021 release until until it was pushed back to 2022 early last year. .

Luhrmann and Butler recently revealed some details about the biopic, including that the film will be split into three sections, depicting three different parts of the late musician’s life. THR quotes Luhrmann stating that Elvis’ life is a “great canvas for exploring America”.

Butler had opened up about the immense pressure of playing such an iconic public figure, saying, “When I started the process, I set out to make my voice sound the same. It instills fear. So that lit the fire,” Butler said. “For a year before I started filming, I was doing vocal coaching.” (THR). From the trailer alone, it looks like Butler nailed both the voice and the looks.

Elvis will open exclusively in theaters on June 24.
