The long-awaited epic biographical drama premieres, directed by Baz Luhrman (Moulin Rouge!, Romeo + Juliet, The Great Gatsby) and starring Austin Butler as Elvis and Tom Hanks as his manager, Colonel Tom Parker. The film chronicles the life and career of Elvis from his childhood days to his emergence as the world’s most famous rock and roll singer. (PG-13, 2h 39m)

“A fizzy, delirious, impishly energized, compulsively watchable 2-hour-and-39-minute fever dream — a spangly pinwheel of a movie that converts the Elvis saga we all carry around in our heads into a lavishly staged biopic-as-pop-opera.” – Owen Gleiberman, Variety

“The King lives!” – Peter Howell, Toronto Star

“When Austin Butler shakes his hips in Elvis’s first gig as a full-blown rock ‘n’ roller, it’s like watching two stars being born.” Philip De Semlyen, Time Out
