The wait is finally! The makers have finally unveiled the release date of the highly-anticipated musical biopic of musician Elvis Presley on Monday, along with a new teaser-trailer.
Director Baz Luhrmann shared the video on his Twitter handle as well as a new release date for the musical drama. His tweet reads, “Elvis Monday Made a little something to let you good people know we are taking care of business on June 24, 2022. #Elvis #TCB”
In the teaser, the camera follows the titular singer, who was known as the King of Rock and Roll, in low-lit shots as he dramatically approaches the stage with an entourage. Other scenes seem to show him at an amusement park at night.
The biopic stars Austin Butler as Elvis Presley, Tom Hanks as his manager Colonel Tom Parker and Maggie Gyllenhaal as his mother Gladys Presley.
The movie chronicles the life and career of “the veteran manager and the young singer, who came from dirt-poor origins to become an icon who changed the course of music history.”
Elviswas originally slated for a Nov. 5 release, but was delayed to June 3, 2022.
