The glory days of Rock N’ Roll come to life on the glorious first posters from Baz Luhrmann’s Elvis biopic – coming to cinemas in June
We should all be saying “Thank you very much!” to Warner Bros today because the studio has dropped three glorious new posters from Baz Luhrmann’s Elvis. The upcoming Rock N’ Roll biopic will be rocking its way into cinemas on June 24 and the studio is eager to have us ready to dance the night away. The movie follows Elvis Presley’s rise to becoming the King of Rock N’ Roll and his turbulent relationship with his enigmatic manager, Colonel Tom Parker. Hollywood juggernaut Tom Hanks stars as Parker opposite Austin Butler who fills the blue suede shoes of the King.
The film has been getting tons of positive buzz lately. Most notably from Elvis’ real family, who have been praising the portrayal of the musical legend. So, Warner Bros. appears to have another smash-hit on its hands. And if these posters are anything to go by; we can all look forward to enjoying a sensational piece of Hollywood history when the flick hits our screens next month. Check them out below:
Joining Tom Hanks and Austin Butler in Elvis is Helen Thomson (“Top of the Lake: China Girl”) who plays Elvis’s mother, Gladys. Richard Roxburgh (“Moulin Rouge!”) portrays Elvis’s father, Vernon, and Olivia DeJonge (“The Visit”) plays Priscilla. Rounding out the cast are Luke Bracey (“Hacksaw Ridge”) as Jerry Schilling; Natasha Bassett (“Hail, Caesar!”) plays Dixie Locke, David Wenham (“The Lord of the Rings” Trilogy) plays Hank Snow. Kelvin Harrison Jr. (“The Trial of the Chicago 7,”) plays B.B. King; Xavier Samuel (“The Twilight Saga: Eclipse”) plays Scotty Moore, and Kodi Smit-McPhee (“The Power of the Dog”) plays Jimmie Rodgers Snow.
“The movie explores the life and music of Elvis Presley (Butler), seen through the prism of his complicated relationship with his enigmatic manager, Colonel Tom Parker (Hanks). The story delves into the complex dynamic between Presley and Parker 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 most significant and influential people in Elvis’s life, Priscilla Presley (Olivia DeJonge).”
Elvis brings the spirit of Rock N’ Roll back to UK cinemas on June 24th, 2022.
