It’s unbeatable! Elvis Presley is one of the biggest artists of all time. Elvis changed the face of music as we knew it, and he was one of the first true examples of the fan culture we see now with artists like One Direction or Justin Bieber. From the music he was making that sounded unlike anything else on the radio, to his dance moves that had people in a trance, he was a true superstar.
When you reach that level of stardom and pass away, Hollywood often makes a movie or two. While we’ve seen so many Elvis Presley movies over the years, with the official praise of Priscilla Presley herself, Elvis, seems to be the real deal.
We’re here to talk about all things, from the casting to the soundtrack, it’s all right here!

Our first order is to praise the man of the hour, Austin Butler, who is playing the man himself in what is sure to be a career-defining performance. From the reviews that are already in, it seems as though Elvis will go down as one of the great depictions of a beloved figure. And that praise is largely due to Austin Butler and his counterpart, played by Tom Hanks.
No movie about a music icon is complete without a killer soundtrack. Luckily, Elvis hasn’t disappointed! From Doja Cat to Swae Lee and Diplo, to the smooth vocal stylings of Austin Butler himself, the soundtrack is a fan’s dream. Each track embodies Elvis Presley’s larger-than-life persona so expertly that you can tell what a labor of love crafting this audio experience has been.
Be sure to check out Elvis when it hits theaters on June 24th!
