ELVIS is an epic, big-screen spectacle from Warner Bros. Pictures and visionary, Oscar-nominated filmmaker Baz Luhrmann that explores the life and music of Elvis Presley, starring Austin Butler and Oscar winner Tom Hanks.
A thoroughly cinematic drama, Elvis’s (Butler) story is seen through the prism of his complicated relationship with his enigmatic manager, Colonel Tom Parker (Hanks). As told by Parker, the film delves into the complex dynamic between the two spanning over 20 years, from Presley’s rise to fame to his unprecedented stardom, against the backdrop of the evolving cultural landscape and loss of innocence in America. Central to that journey is one of the significant and influential people in Elvis’s life, Priscilla Presley (Olivia DeJonge).
Starring alongside Butler and Hanks, award-winning theatre actress Helen Thomson (“Top of the Lake: China Girl,” “Rake”) plays Elvis’s mother, Gladys, Richard Roxburgh (“Moulin Rouge!” “Breath,” “Hacksaw Ridge”) portrays Elvis’s father, Vernon, and DeJonge (“The Visit,” “Stray Dolls”) plays Priscilla. Luke Bracey (“Hacksaw Ridge,” “Point Break”) plays Jerry Schilling, Natasha Bassett (“Hail, Caesar!”) plays Dixie Locke, David Wenham (“The Lord of the Rings” Trilogy, “Lion,” “300”) plays Hank Snow, Kelvin Harrison Jr. (“The Trial of the Chicago 7,” “The High Note”) plays B.B. King, Xavier Samuel (“Adore,” “Love & Friendship,” “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse”) plays Scotty Moore, and Kodi Smit-McPhee (“The Power of the Dog”) plays Jimmie Rodgers Snow.
Also in the cast, Dacre Montgomery (“Stranger Things,” “The Broken Heart Gallery”) plays TV director Steve Binder, alongside Australian actors Leon Ford (“Gallipoli,” “The Pacific”) as Tom Diskin, Kate Mulvany (“The Great Gatsby,” “Hunters”) as Marion Keisker, Gareth Davies (“Peter Rabbit,” “Hunters”) as Bones Howe, Charles Grounds (“Crazy Rich Asians,” “Camp”) as Billy Smith, Josh McConville (“Fantasy Island”) as Sam Phillips, and Adam Dunn (“Home and Away”) as Bill Black.
To play additional iconic musical artists in the film, Luhrmann cast singer/songwriter Yola as Sister Rosetta Tharpe, model Alton Mason as Little Richard, Austin, Texas native Gary Clark Jr. as Arthur Crudup, and artist Shonka Dukureh as Willie Mae “Big Mama” Thornton.
Oscar nominee Luhrmann (“The Great Gatsby,” “Moulin Rouge!”) directed from a screenplay by Baz Luhrmann & Sam Bromell and Baz Luhrmann & Craig Pearce and Jeremy Doner, story by Baz Luhrmann and Jeremy Doner. The film’s producers are Luhrmann, Oscar winner Catherine Martin (“The Great Gatsby,” “Moulin Rouge!”), Gail Berman, Patrick McCormick and Schuyler Weiss. Toby Emmerich, Courtenay Valenti and Kevin McCormick executive produced.
The director’s behind-the-scenes creative team includes director of photography Mandy Walker (“Mulan,” “Australia”), Oscar-winning production designer and costume designer Catherine Martin (“The Great Gatsby,” “Moulin Rouge!”), production designer Karen Murphy (“A Star Is Born”), editors Matt Villa (“The Great Gatsby,” “Australia”) and Jonathan Redmond (“The Great Gatsby”), Oscar-nominated visual effects supervisor Thomas Wood (“Mad Max: Fury Road”), music supervisor Anton Monsted (“Australia,” “Moulin Rouge!”) and composer Elliott Wheeler (“The Get Down”).
Principal photography on “Elvis” took place in Queensland, Australia with the support of the Queensland Government, Screen Queensland, and the Australian Government’s Producer Offset program.
A Warner Bros. Pictures Presentation, A Bazmark Production, A Jackal Group Production, A Baz Luhrmann Film, “Elvis” will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures. It is set to release in theaters in North America on June 24, 2022, and internationally beginning 22 June 2022.

Austin didn't sing all the songs. He did That's All Right, and a few seconds of a couple more. Read the credits at the end of the film. Austin said in an interview that he sang a few numbers, lip synced some, and sang along with Elvis for a few.

@60sTeen there's another Baz movie to see. Strictly Ballroom is Baz first award winning film. It premiered at Cannes also. It was my intro to Baz and I kept thinking, is this for real? So I looked up the PAN PACIFIC BALLROOM DANCING Awards and yes, it is a big deal. You must see this movie. It will crack you up and make you cry.

@Isaac Gudino austin sang nearly all of the movie. If was necessary, that's why Baz was looking at singers first. But in the second half Baz combined his voice with real elvis performing. That's because 70s recordings still don't transfer perfectly to digital. However, the " If I can dream" performance was almost entirely elvis. Elvis ran roughshod over those lyrics and no one can do that like EP.

@s Movie was really good and I'm hoping they eventually release the 4 hour cut because they left so much out, but I do agree with you about Hanks. Bad casting. Could have easily found someone better suited for the part but they probably wanted Tom Hanks' name to sell the movie since the star was fairly unknown to most.

There is a rare gift among actors, that when they are so deeply ingrained in the role you no longer see the actor, you just see the character. There were moments watching that I felt like I saw Elvis and not someone recreating Elvis. Truly great actors are chameleons that shape shift to meet the challenge and he will be a truly great actor. Even if he doesn't do this level again, he will be remembered as the only actor that ever played Elvis successfully.

I can hear the difference. Elvis had a much stronger, more resonant voice, especially in the upper register. He could hit those high notes with greater authority than Austin can. When you listen to the comeback special, that’s the real Elvis singing. Compare that with this - there’s no comparison.

Its Austin really singing as the young Elvis, then Baz merges Elvis and Austins voices together as Elvis in Vegas and the end of the movie was sadly brilliant.

Austin was a brilliant choice as there are millions of new young Elvis fans just based on the trailers alone. Many more will join us in the Elvis fanbase as soon as the movie drops. This movie successfully explains the contributions to music and America of Elvis Presley, to today's current generation. Elvis' legacy has been given a tremendous boost, and will help young people understand that he was a force of good for American music and humanity.

Austin is NOT your average "impersonator" but his performance is an embodiment of Elvis' essence.
He is not trying to imitate Elvis knowing that this would lead to a caricature. And we have seen too many of that.
We have been widness of the destuction of a legacy turning Elvis into a joke, a Las Vegas Wedding prop.
This movie will make this injustice undone.

If there was a way to explain, and to your point Seewhatis, there are thousands of imitators out there, Baz cast an actor, one that already had pedigree, as an actor, and created a movie, detailing Presleys influences in music, and dug deep into an era where people viewed things a certain way, when this artist came around he became the true rebel that no one had ever seen before. An artist that would change the face of music, and would become a veritable influence to future musical artists. The work of Baz to cast Austin for the role and not an imitator or tribute artist, and tell that story the way he did is totally brilliant, and worthy of multiple oscars

I am 81 years old and I got Elvis autograph when I was 15 years old in Tampa, Fl and Austin Butler's performance of Elvis Presley was absolutely outstanding!!!!! When I met Elvis he was the fill in for the intermission after Minnie Pearl and her group performed and when I went afterwards to get his autograph we had a rather lengthy chat. What an absolute gentleman he was. I am sure that his Mamma is truly proud of him as she should be. Austin, I am sure you will never see this but you have done an outstanding job portraying Elvis, the King, and he always will be forever. You are an outstanding man and so was he. Thank you for this wonderful memory of Elvis..I shall never forget it, never.

This may be a weird takeaway but I honestly hope this movie creates a soft American cultural shift back to the fashion, and musical era of the 1950s-60s.

History in the making right here. A star is born. I have loved Baz's work since R&J. He blew it out of the water with this one! What a masterpiece. And it truly seems like Austin was meant to play this role and all the Disney parts led him here. Can't wait to see what the future holds for him.

Casting Austin was brilliant. NOBODY looks like Elvis. This is as close as we are going to get - and he's really GOOD!! Any hiring of a professional Elvis imitator would have stigmatized the entire movie as a meme. Have enough of those floating around. But THIS HIRE... AUSTIN BUTLER ... is making a NEW GENERATION of Elvis fans. ... by the MILLIONS already. This was a VERY GOOD IDEA and the Elvis fanbase benefits greatly and Elvis' legacy marches on. WINNER.
This film has got Oscar written all over it. It will win 3 Oscars minimum and be nominated for dozens of awards. This real story will make millions of new young fans. Elvis was a YOUTH MOVEMENT more than anything. And that energy turned right into the civil rights movement and changed the world. Austin Butler looks like a young Johnny Depp and he will nab one of those Oscars for sure. This movie just made him a star.

Austin in the 68 Comeback Special looks exactly like Elvis. Or better. But he has every single glance and smile down pat.

He was just great; so happy for him and all of us who so hope this will be a major hit so as to reward all his hard work which culminated in a week in the hospital the day after they wrapped. In addition hoping that it will bring a whole new generation in to the fold.🙂

When Austin was first cast, I was doubtful. With how he resembles Elvis physically. But in reflection he def has that androginys look. The way he embodied Elvis style, charisma, and look. Came across as an authentic portrayl. Opposed to an imitation. The way he nailed his tone vocally was uncanny. It was a incredible performance.

took my grandmother to see this movie and she couldn't keep still, she was floored by Austin's performance. afterward she reminded me of the one time she reached out for Elvis and barely grazed his arm, she said she was very popular at school until she washed her hand.

It's him all naked without any camera effects angles or nothing just a test totally pure... Crazy that he can be this good and this was in 2019 before the break they had i think so he probably got even better with time

I grew up in a family of Elvis fans. It was actually Elvis’ music that helped my Grandma learn to speak English when she moved to the US in the 1950’s. I can’t believe how much this actor is embodying the spirit, voice and mannerisms of Elvis. It’s mesmerizing. I can’t wait to see the movie.
Baaxie - 2 bulan yang lalu
Oh, I love this! I grew up as if Elvis was part of our family, with an Elvis-loving grandma... and mom... and dad...etc. Lol. My son loves him, and I'm sure any future grandkids will! Elvis will endure. Great way to learn a language, for sure. He definitely would have motivated me to learn! Lol. 💕

Austin Butler truly delivered. Hanks delivered (what's new?) This film left me absolutely moved. And, at the end Baz was so kind to memorialize my 10th birthday.
August 16 1977. A day, I'll never forget.

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAmazing. From an Elvis purist that you can NOT BS, this is the BEST 2:48 seconds of Elvis impersonation I've EVER SEEN. He beat the professional Elvis Impersonators. And as an actor he is a PHENOM. Elvis just made Austin world famous. I am SO READY to watch this movie......

I've heard the original audio of Elvis singing this and the voice is so similar it's uncanny. He even has the little lip curl down pat and the fidgety hyper leg shake. It's just like Priscilla said. This wasn't an impression of Elvis. it was a possession.

I have to say I was shocked to learn that Austin did the singing. Incredible. Elvis had a distinct voice, very powerful, soulful and Austin captured it. I know there are impersonators out there but to perform such a wide range is amazing. If reincarnation is possible, well who knows. Elvis may have been reborn.

Being someone who loves Elvis, like many of us, I’m so critical of Elvis impersonators. Watching Austin, I’m blown away. He fully immersed his heart and soul into this. You can feel the energy Austin has running through him. No one can compare to our Elvis, but Austin seems like he merged souls! I’m sure Austin’s mom is smiling so big right now, and beyond proud. Thank you Austin for doing the King justice!
