PeraMovies News VIDEO OF THE DAY

“I’ve seen Elvis the film, I watched the trailer over a dozen times. But the words I heard from my daughter on how much she loved the film and that Riley will love it too when she sees it brought tears. I relived every moment in this film. It took me a few days to overcome the emotions as it did with Lisa. Beautifully done Baz, Tom, Austin and Olivia.”

Priscilla Presley had also spoken out more about the film in a previous post. She said how she was treated to a special screening of the film with Elvis’ friend Jerry Schilling, and they agreed that Baz Luhrmann succeeded in telling the true story in “his unique artistic way.” Presley also praised Austin Butler for playing the late singer in such convincing fashion.

“Austin Butler, who played Elvis is outstanding. Halfway through the film Jerry and I looked at each other and said WOW!!! Bravo to him…he knew he had big shoes to fill. He was extremely nervous playing this part. I can only imagine. Tom Hanks was Col Parker in this film. What a character he was. There was two sides to Colonel, Jerry and I witnessed both. The story, as we all know, does not have a happy ending. But I think you will understand a little bit more of Elvis’ journey, penned by a director who put his heart and soul and many hours into this film.”
