Austin Butler and Tom Hanks star in this new movie musical from Baz Luhrmann. “When it’s too dangerous to say something, sing it.”
The new trailer for ‘Elvis’ is going to leave you wanting to move your skeleton to the rhythm of the King of Rock and Roll. Director Baz Luhrmann went to Paris (‘Moulin Rouge’), then to Long Island (‘The Great Gatsby’), and now he reaches the ears of the whole world with the biopic about one of the most vindicated and reviled icons of the century that precedes us: ‘Elvis’, starring Austin Butler and Oscar winner Tom Hanks. do
Who was Elvis? Perhaps this question can only be answered with music, dancing and a lot of hair gel. What was he like and how did he remember him? Perhaps the only way to do justice to these questions is to admit that perhaps background was a bit of form, and that that was fine… Or was it? Shall we see a trailer? Hit play and keep reading in a few minutes.
life and music of Elvis Presley (Butler, Tex in ‘Once Upon a Time in… Hollywood’) can be understood, as we see in the trailer, through their intricate relationship with Colonel Tom Parker (Hanks), his mysterious manager. Luhrmann’s history will delve into the power dynamics that existed between Presley and Parke. It will be a journey of more than twenty years, from Presley’s rise to fame (hey, unprecedented stardom). Later, the United States and he would lose their innocence… And what was he painting there Priscilla Presley (Olivia DeJonge), one of the most important and influential people in Elvis’s life?
We pull back: we will meet Elvis’s mother, who is brought to life by the theater actress Helen Thomsonwell known in American circles, and her father (of course! daddy issues!), interpreted by Richard Roxburgh. Roxburgh is used to “bad guy” roles: he was that Dracula from Stephen Sommersin 2004, and we saw him truncating the love of Nicole Kidman Y Ewan McGregor as The Duke of ‘Moulin Rouge’. More names include Luke Bracey What Jerry Schilling, Natasha Bassett What Dixie Locke, David Wenham What Hank Snow, Kelvin Harrison Jr. What B.B.King Already Xavier Samuel What Scotty Moore. Last but not least, Kodi Smit-McPhee (‘The power of the dog’) will be the pastor and country star Jimmie Rodgers Snow. Amen, brothers.
The also author of ‘Romeo+Julieta’ has written the script with his usual Craig Pearce (‘Love is in the air’, ‘Moulin Rouge’), along with Sam Bromell, who also worked on the script for ‘The Great Gatsby’). The original release date for ‘Elvis’ was June 3, 2022, but in November, when Luhrmann himself tweeted 20 seconds of teaserit was confirmed what the film had been delayed until June 24, 2022. It will be a theatrical release only, contrary to the hybrid model that HBO proposed for films distributed with Warner, a strategy that has caused them to lose Christopher Nolan and his next project on Robert J Oppenheimer (now it will be a Universal brand).
