A blockbuster biopic stylised by the inimitable cinematic showman Luhrmann, the film spans from his childhood introduction to gospel music in Mississippi until his untimely death in the 70s.

Elvis passionately documents the singing legend’s turbulent life primarily through the lens of the long and complicated relationship he had with his infamous manager, Colonel Tom Parker (a surprisingly sinister Tom Hanks).

The King’s life finally receives the star-spangled, majestic silver screen treatment that only Baz Luhrmann (Romeo + Juliet, Moulin Rouge!) could bestow, screening with us at Tyneside Cinema following its premiere at the prestigious Cannes Film Festival.

Luhrmann’s sixth film – eagerly anticipated since 2013’s The Great Gatsby – marks his return with all the glitz, drama, and bombast that the life of the world-changing singer deserves.
