Hugh Jackman Criticizes Elvis Movie: ‘Incredible’
Hugh Jackman rated Elvis and called the film “incredible”. He posted about the film on Twitter and said he liked going with Deborah-Lee Furness. Tom Hanks as Colonel Tom Parker and Austin Butler for bringing the legend back in color received special thanks. Many moviegoers were thrilled with Elvis this weekend. To hold onto Top Gun: Maverick because the first place is not an easy task. Baz Luhrmann must also be delighted. He took a huge swing on this project as a kind of human interest piece about a popular artist. Observers are very concerned that films like this cannot pass in a pandemic environment. But, Elvis delivered and it will be exciting to see where it all goes.
A previous interview saw Luhrmann talk about what hid his decision to hunt Elvis. “I love biopics, but it’s not really a biopic, is it? It’s really, for me, about America in the 50s, 60s and 70s,” Luhrmann revealed. “And if you want to talk about America in the 50s and 60s and the 70s at the center of culture, for the good, the bad and the ugly, it’s a figure [like] Elvis Presley.”

“Like how Shakespeare would take a historical figure like a king and explore a big theme, or Amedee it’s not really Mozart when you learn so much about Mozart, it’s about jealousy,” he continued. “This movie is about America in those three eras – Elvis the Rebel, Elvis the Hollywood’s highest paid actor and living legend, the icon trapped in this hotel less than 10 minutes from here by a man named Colonel Tom Parker.”
Warner Bros. has released a brand new description of the biopic! “The film explores the life and music of Elvis Presley (Butler), seen through the lens of his complicated relationship with his enigmatic manager, Colonel Tom Parker (Hanks),” reads the synopsis from Warner Bros. “The story delves into the complex dynamic between Presley and Parker spanning more than 20 years, from Presley’s rise to stardom to his unprecedented stardom, against the backdrop of the changing cultural landscape and of the loss of innocence in America. At the center of this journey is one of the most important and influential people in Elvis’ life, Priscilla Presley (Olivia DeJonge).”
