Nominated for eight 2023 Oscars, including Motion Picture of the Year, Elvis tracks the life of Elvis Presley from his childhood to becoming the undisputed “King of Rock and Roll” in the 1950s.
As Elvis, Austin Butler was nominated for the Oscar and won at the BAFTA, Golden Globes and People’s Choice Awards, among other accolades.
Oscar winner Tom Hanks plays his manager, Colonel Tom Parker, with Olivia DeJonge as his wife, Priscillla. The cast also includes the likes of Oscar nominee Kodi Smit-McPhee (The Power of the Dog), BAFTA nominee Kelvin Harrison Jr. (Cyrano, The Trial of the Chicago 7), Critics Choice Award winner David Wenham (Faramir in The Lord of the Rings films), and multi-award winner Richard Roxburgh (Catherine the Great, Moulin Rouge!), with multiple Grammy nominee Yola as the “godmother of rock n roll”, Sister Rosetta Tharpe, and four-time Grammy winner Gary Clark Jr. as Arthur ‘Big Boy’ Crudup.
Directed by two-time Oscar nominee Baz Luhrmann (Moulin Rouge!, The Great Gatsby, Romeo + Juliet), Elvis is the second-highest-grossing music biopic of all time – and the 16th biggest blockbuster globally last year.
