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).

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.

    Maybe, if the films gets some Oscar nominations, Austin should perform as Elvis onstage during the ceremony.

    It’s no secret that the Oscars have received quite a bit of criticism the last few years.

    So the show could definitely use a little bit of something that can guarantee a positive reaction from audiences

    I was a young girl when I met Elvis we were in a movie theater and the power went out you couldn't see 2 inches in front of your face I had fallen down and Elvis grabbed my arm and picked me up using lighter to guide me out I will never forget how nice and caring of a man he was

    Austin Butler does not look anything like Elvis regardless of the fact that he moves his legs and feet

    like Elvis – he does not act like Elvis either – the only actor who really looks like Elvis is Jonathan Rhys Meyers – who played Elvis inn the past

    I guess it was easier to make Tom Hanks look like Col Parker than Austin Butler look like Elvis – which really did not work at all – so this movie did not do anything for me – just

    disappointment – did not portray the real Elvis at all – the story was fake and phony and did not connect with me like Elvis did!

    Bad movie done ALL WRONG! The actor who played Elvis was fantastic when given the opportunity to act! It’s BUSY, 20 angle shots per 30 seconds of movie footage backed with RAP music throughout, just a train wreck! Maybe somebody will realize with this actors Elvis skills they’ll do a docudrama of the likes of Buddy Holly Story, La Bamba & Selena! If that gets done that film will get an Oscar unlike this POS that will get nothing!

    This was such a good movie. Of course they did not show Anna Margaret relationship or his relationship with Priscilla when she was a minor… but the guy did an amazing job as Elvis, I was avoiding watching the movie scared I may see some Elvis caricature. But he was fantastic.

    Elvis did have some black influence, true. But Black counseling too? And rap music during the 50s too? hilarious… of course the HEAVILY black emphasis would ONLY occur during this current 'black era' we live in now… you Millennials have no idea what true Biography is, everything has to be "updated" for you to understand…. enjoy the illusion.

    The only thing that sucked about this movie were the 3 modern songs randomly inserted into it. Doja cat? Denzel Curry? I mean I love Denzel but these are not the musicians that should’ve been used to showcase the black communities contribution to Elvis’s development. WHEN YOU HAVE BB KING AS A CHARACTER IN THE MOVIE YOU SHOULD PROBABLY HAVE A LITTLE BIT MORE OF HIS MUSIC. AND A LITTLE LESS DOJA CAT.
