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
February 17th, 2022 under Austin Butler, Baz Luhrmann, Elvis Presley. [ Comments: none ]

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!

BTWF: Bruno Mars in Honeymoon in Vegas?

Before people were covering Bruno Mars’ songs, he was singing Elvis Presley’s I Can’t Help Falling in Love with You in Honeymoon in Vegas. How precious was the 6-year-old in that 1992 movie?

Bruce Springsteen’s epic Graceland story
October 12th, 2019 under Bruce Springsteen, Elvis Presley, Graham Norton. [ Comments: none ]


Back in 1975, Bruce Springsteen released a little album called Born to Run and the songs off of it were running up the charts. He went from unknown to superstar with that record and it gave the young singer the balls to do things he normally would never have done.

For example, yesterday when he was on The Graham Norton Show, he shared a story about a trip he will never forget. He and the band went to Nashville and they were hungry. He got in the cab with Steven Van Zandt and asked for a place to eat. The driver suggested a place near Graceland.

When they got to Elvis Presley’s home, he told the driver to stop. He got out, jumped the wall and proceeded to walk up to the door. Just as he was about to knock, he was stopped by security.

The guard wanted to know if there was anything he could help him with. That is when The Boss, asked if The King was home. He was not there because he was in Vegas.

Then Springsteen asked if he could give a message to his idol. He said to the security guard, “Can you tell him, I don’t generally like to do this but, Bruce Springsteen was here.” Then he continued with, “He might not know who that is, but I was just on the cover of Time and Newsweek.”

With that, he was on his way. He never met Elvis before he died in 1977, so he does not know if got the message. I’d like to think that he did. Not as much as Bruce though.

While he doesn’t have that awesome story of meeting The King, maybe it is better. They say never meet your idols for reason…
