ELVIS: Official second trailer for Baz Luhrmann’s movie

Elvis Presley’s wife Priscilla led the stars for the premiere of Elvis at the Cannes Film Festival on Wednesday night.

The businesswoman showed off her age-defying looks as she walked the red carpet arm-in-arm with Austin Butler.

The actor is portraying the King of Rock and Roll in the musical which charters the singer’s rise to fame in the 1950s.

Displaying her very smooth complexion, Priscilla looked much younger than her 77 years as she posed up a storm for photographers.

The American beauty led the glamour in a brown satin dress embellished with sparkles, while Austin, 30, cut a dapper figure in a black suit and bow tie.

And it was a star turn out for the screening, with the likes of Kylie Minogue, Sharon Stone and Tom Hanks walking the red carpet.

The new trailer starts with Hanks’ character Parker narrating and saying: “There are some who make me out to be the villain of this here story.”

It’s then when Butler as Elvis comes into shot before the years are rolled back and the rocker is seen as a child.

The gripping trailer shows the meteoric rise of the Suspicious Minds singer, as well as clips of tougher times during his stardom.

The movie also sees Butler impressively sing some of Elvis’s earlier songs himself.

Speaking recently about portraying such an icon and learning to sing like the star, Butler recently told a press event: “[It’s] huge shoes to fill.

“I think when I began the process of this, I set out to get my voice to sound identical to his.

“I held that for a long time, and what that does is it also instills fear, that I’m not going to achieve that or whatever. That got the fire inside of me burning to work and work and work.”

He continued: “He’s such an icon and held to superhuman status. To get to explore that for years and learn why he was the way that he was, it was such a joy that I could do that for the rest of my life probably.”

The musical drama’s release is understood to have been pushed back several times amid the Covid-19 pandemic, but the eagerly anticipated release date has now been set for June 24.
