The story is seen through the prism of his complicated relationship with his manager, Colonel Tom Parker played by Tom Hanks.

The new trailer showcases more of Butler’s mind-blowing performances as Elvis while also giving us more glimpses of the relationship with his mother and his romance with Priscilla, played by Olivia De Jonge.

We also get a better insight into the movie’s soundtrack which has been described as ‘an infusion of rap and hip-hop with classic tunes by the King’.

The soundtrack will feature the likes of Eminem, Chris Isaak, Stevie Nicks, Pnau, Maneskin, Eminem & Ceelo Green and Doja Cat.

It’s been a long but worthwhile wait for the movie which had a COVID-interrupted production on the Gold Coast.

Elvis will have its world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival on Thursday.

The Gold Coast will host the Australian premiere on June 4 with stars Tom Hanks, Austin Butler and Olivia De Jonge set to walk the red carpet.

Elvis is released in Australian cinemas on June 23.
