Warner Bros. Pictures

The second trailer for Baz Luhrmann’s Elvis has been released. In this trailer, it heavily focuses on the effects of Elvis rising to new heights of stardom. Effects that would not only hinder him but those around him as well.

The film dives deeper into the dynamic between Presley and Parker, whose relationship spanned over 20 years. From Presley’s rise to fame to his unprecedented stardom, against the backdrop of the evolving cultural landscape and loss of innocence in America, one of the most significant and influential people in Presley’s life was Priscilla Presley (Olivia DeJonge).

Elvis also stars Helen Thomson (Top of the Lake: China Girl) as Elvis’s mother, Gladys, Richard Roxburgh (Moulin Rouge!) as Elvis’s father, Vernon, Luke Bracey (Point Break) as Jerry Schilling, Natasha Bassett (Hail, Caesar!) as Dixie Locke, David Wenham (The Lord of the Rings Trilogy) as Hank Snow, Kelvin Harrison Jr. (The Trial of the Chicago 7) as B.B. King, Xavier Samuel (Adore) as Scotty Moore, and Kodi Smit-McPhee (The Power of the Dog) as Jimmie Rodgers Snow. 

Additional cast members include Dacre Montgomery (Stranger Things) as TV director Steve Binder, alongside Australian actors Leon Ford (Gallipoli) as Tom Diskin, Kate Mulvany (The Great Gatsby) as Marion Keisker, Gareth Davies (Peter Rabbit) as Bones Howe, Charles Grounds (Crazy Rich Asians) as Billy Smith, Josh McConville (Fantasy Island) as Sam Phillips, and Adam Dunn (Home and Away) as Bill Black.

Elvis is set for a North American release on June 24, 2022, and internationally on June 22, 2022.
