The last Elvis The trailer shows how the biopic spans a span of more than twenty years and chronicles both the singer’s opulent rise to stardom and his eventual fall from grace. In the 1950s, Elvis’ emergence was defined by his sexually provocative style of performance and the intersection of influences from the black community, which is why the biopic may be more politically charged than many realize. At the time, Elvis’ innovative performance style thrilled young audiences, but also sparked a lot of controversy, two reactions highlighted in the new trailer.
The trailer ends with a quick glimpse of a slightly older Elvis taking the stage and announcing to the audience: “This is not a nostalgia show. We’re gonna do something different“, suggesting that the biopic will also cover the less glamorous years of Presley’s life and career, when years of prescription drug abuse severely compromised his health, leading to his untimely death in 1977 at the age of 42 years old. Elvis the biopic would look at this part of his life given how Luhrmann’s past work has dealt with similar, albeit fictional, tragic characters such as Romeo Montague and Jay Gatsby. It should be interesting to see how critics and audiences react to Luhrmann’s take on Elvis Presley’s life when the film hits theaters on June 24.
