Baz Luhrmann’s film Elvis was premiered at the Cannes Film Festival. The film is based on the life of musician and actor Elvis Presley. Austin Butler was lauded by critics for his impeccable performance. Butler essayed the role of the King of Rock and Roll. Reportedly, he even got a 12-minute standing ovation at the premier. The movie also stars Tom Hanks, Luke Bracey, Gary Clark Jr. among others in key roles. Variety said, “Austin Butler, the 30-year-old actor who plays Elvis, has bedroom eyes and cherubic lips and nails the king’s electrostatic moves. He also does a reasonably good impersonation of Elvis’ sultry velvet drawl.” The film is slated to be theatrically released worldwide on June 24. Watch the video to know more.
