Warner Bros. has released a new trailer for the upcoming biopic film Elvis. The trailer gives us an even better look at Austin Butler in his portrayal of the king of rock & roll. It’s been a few months since we last saw a trailer for the film but the release date is nearing for Baz Luhrmann‘s biopic that will span 20 years across the life and career of the iconic Elvis Presley.
Check out the official synopsis here:
“The film 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).
