    Baz Luhrmann’s Elvis Biopic Gets Pushed Back to Late June

    Warner Bros. Pictures has delayed the release date for Baz Luhrmann’s upcoming Elvis biopic drama, starring Austin Butler and Tom Hanks. Originally scheduled for a June 3, 2022 release, the all-star musical drama has been pushed back for three weeks and is now slated to arrive in theaters on June 24, 2022.

    Its new theatrical release date will see the biopic go up against Sony Pictures’ Reese Witherspoon-produced drama film Where the Crawdads Sing starring Daisy Edgar-Jones. Unlike the studio’s 2021 film slate, Elvis won’t have a simultaneous theatrical and HBO Max debut as they return to a more traditional distribution plan.

Joining them are Oscar nominee Maggie Gyllenhaal, Rufus Sewell, Yola, Gary Clark Jr., Shonka Dukureh, Shannon Sanders, Lenesha Randolph, Jordan Holland, Kelvin Harrison Jr., and Alton Mason.

    “It is a musical drama about the life and music of Elvis Presley, seen through the prism of his complicated relationship with his enigmatic manager, Colonel Tom Parker,” reads the synopsis.  “The story delves into the complex dynamic between Presley and Parker spanning 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. Central to that journey is one of the most significant and influential people in Elvis’s life, Priscilla Presley.”
