The new trailer for Elvis got my legs shaking like his

Baz Luhrmann released a new trailer for his epic biopic about Elvis Presley starring Austin Butler, and I already have a hunka, hunka, burning love for this film.

If it is as trippy and as beautiful as Romeo & Juliet and Moulin Rouge, then I think they are going to have a very busy awards season as they should because the movie seems to have matched the caliber of the greatness of the King himself.

It looks so mind-blowingly good that it might even bring Elvis out of hiding. Where has he been?

So mark your calendars for June 24th because you are not going to want to miss the day this film comes out. And if you do, then we might have to send you to Jailhouse Rock!


Watch Austin Butler shake his pelvis as ELVIS

Baz Luhrmann released the first trailer for his ELVIS biopic with Austin Butler in the title role.

I am not sure how I feel about it because it is just a series of flash cuts. However, I know that the director makes everything beautiful, so I am sure this is a movie fit for the King.

When it comes to Butler, I think he looks like himself as the younger Elvis. However, he is the spitting of Elvis when they put the prosthetics on him.

Talking about prosthetics, what about Tom Hanks as the Colonel? It looks, and it doesn’t look like the two-time Oscar winner. Could he win his third? If it is a boring year of movies like this one, then yes.

I hope it is because Luhrmann deserves an Oscar because he has an eye like no other in the movie business.

ELVIS comes out on June 24th.

For years, we have been hearing about how Baz Luhrman is doing a movie about Elvis Presley with Austin Butler in the title role. However, it got delayed because Tom Hanks was the first celebrity to reveal he tested positive for COVID-19. And then the virus went into full pandemic.

Well, after several delays, the movie has a release date of June 24th. So today, the director released a teaser for his film.

Well, the teasing worked because I can’t wait to see it. Between Luhrman, Hanks, Butler, you know we are going to get a movie that is fit for a King, the King of Rock’n’Roll!


Tom Hanks debuts the ‘horrible’ haircut he got to play Colonel Tom Parker

Tom Hanks has gone through many transformations throughout his career. He gained weight for A League of Their Own, he lost a lot for Philadelphia, and now he got a “horrible” haircut to play Colonel Tom Parker in Baz Luhrmann’s movie about Elvis Presley.

The actor debuted the nearly bald look on The Graham Norton Show, and he tried to hide it by having his head above the computer’s camera’s angle. Eventually, he gave us a quick glimpse. The Oscar winner is correct; it is “horrible.” Hopefully, it will grow back. Although, we will love him with or without hair.

Now, the question is, will the Academy love him enough to give him his third Oscar because of it. We will find out whenever that film comes out.


Moulin Rouge come what may to the stage

Back in 2001, we fell in love with Baz Luhrmann’s Moulin Rouge and now we have to prepare to do that all over it again. That’s because it was announced today that the man who brought it to the big screen is working with John Logan and Alex Timbers to adapt it for the stage.
As of now that is all we know, and Playbill says that they will make more announcements later on like who is starring it, when and where it will debut and what music will be included.
One question that is not in doubt is how much we are going to love it!
