Elvis trailer: Austin Butler-Tom Hanks explore tumultuous relationship of Elvis Presley and his manager Colonel Tom Parker

Finally, the much-awaited trailer for Elvis is out. The Warner Bros. Pictures drama Elvis, starring Austin Butler in the titular role and Oscar winner Tom Hanks, is directed by Oscar-nominated creative filmmaker Baz Luhrmann.

The film examines Elvis Presley's (Butler) life and music through the lens of his tumultuous relationship with his enigmatic manager, Colonel Tom Parker (Hanks). It explores the complicated relationship between Presley and Parker over the course of 20 years, from Presley's ascent to prominence to his extraordinary stardom, all set against the backdrop of America's changing cultural environment and loss of innocence. At the heart of that trip is Priscilla Presley (Olivia DeJonge), one of Elvis' most significant and influential people.

Helen Thomson, an award-winning theatrical actress, stars alongside Hanks and Butler as Elvis' mother Gladys, Richard Roxburgh as Elvis' father Vernon, and DeJonge as Priscilla. Jerry Schilling is played by Luke Bracey, Dixie Locke is played by Natasha Bassett, Hank Snow is played by David Wenham, B.B. King is played by Kelvin Harrison Jr., Scotty Moore is played by Xavier Samuel, and Jimmie Rodgers Snow is played by Kodi Smit-McPhee.

Dacre Montgomery plays TV director Steve Binder, and Australian actors Leon Ford, Kate Mulvany, Gareth Davies, Charles Grounds, Josh McConville, and Adam Dunn play Tom Diskin, Marion Keisker, Bones Howe, Billy Smith, Sam Phillips, and Bill Black.

Luhrmann, an Oscar nominee, directed the film from a screenplay by Baz Luhrmann and Sam Bromell, as well as Baz Luhrmann and Craig Pearce and Jeremy Doner, and a narrative by Baz Luhrmann and Jeremy Doner. Luhrmann, Oscar winner Catherine Martin, Gail Berman, Patrick McCormick, and Schuyler Weiss are the film's producers. Executive producers were Courtenay Valenti and Kevin McCormick.

On June 24, 2022, it will be released in theatres in India.
