In the trailer we see Elvis as a child, to the beginning of his career and the highs and lows of being one of the world’s biggest stars.
Austin Butler stars as the rock n roll legend while Tom Hanks portrays Colonel Tom Parker, the man who was instrumental in Elvis’ success and ultimately his downfall.
Elvis is set to be released in June of this year.
