Elvis’ real-life family has been appreciating and lauding the portrayal of the legend in the past few weeks. There have been various social media posts from fans and critics building the hype on this. Here’s the tone Luhrmann is trying to convey in this one below.

Why did director Baz Luhrmann take this film?

While appearing in an interview, the director discussed why he chose to take on this film. “I love biopics, but this is not really a biopic, right? It’s really about, for me, America in the 50s and the 60s and the 70s,” Luhrmann revealed. “And if you want to talk about America in the 50s and 60s and the 70s at the center of culture, for the good, the bad, and the ugly, is a figure [like] Elvis Presley.”

Here’s another tweet:

“Like how Shakespeare would take a historical figure like a king and explore a big theme, or Amadeus isn’t really about Mozart when you learn so much about Mozart, it’s about jealousy,” he added. “What this movie is about is America in those three epochs — Elvis the rebel, Elvis the highest-paid actor in Hollywood, and Elvis the living legend, the icon trapped in that hotel not 10 minutes from here, by a man called Colonel Tom Parker.”

Watch the trailer below:

“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),” Warner Bros.’s synopsis reads. “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).”
