Starring Austin Butler, who impressed in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, as the rock ‘n roll legend Elvis Presley, the cast also includes Tom Hanks, undergoing quite a transformation to play manager Colonel Tom Parker, who discovered the artist in 1955. Also starring Olivia DeJonge, Yola Quartey, Luke Bracey, Kelvin Harrison Jr., Dacre Montgomery, Helen Thomson, Richard Roxburgh, and David Wenham, see the trailer below.
