After years of waiting, Baz Luhrmann’s musical biopic Elvis finally hits theaters this weekend.
Starring Austin Butler as the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll, aka Elvis Presley, this new Elvis movie promises to be a wild and fantastical ride. It is, after all, Baz Luhrmann, the same filmmaker who brought us Romeo + Juliet (1996), Red Mill! (2001), and Gatsby the magnificent (2013). There’s no doubt that Elvis will likely be just as bizarre and divisive. But that’s what makes it interesting, right?
Also starring Tom Hanks, Helen Thomson, Richard Roxburgh, Olivia DeJonge, Luke Bracey, Natasha Bassett, David Wenham, Kelvin Harrison Jr., Xavier Samuel and Kodi Smit-McPhee, this is one summer movie you don’t want not miss . Read on to find out where to watch the Elvis movie and when to expect Elvis in streaming.
