Director Baz Luhrmann’s biopic Elvis arrives for premium digital ownership at home Aug. 9 and on 4K UHD, Blu-ray and DVD Sept. 13 from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment.
The film, which stars Austin Butler and Tom Hanks, tells the story of Elvis (Butler) through the prism of his complicated relationship with his enigmatic manager Colonel Tom Parker (Hanks). As told by Parker, the film delves into the complex dynamic between the two spanning more than 20 years, from Presley’s rise to fame to his unprecedented stardom, against the backdrop of the evolving cultural landscape and loss of innocence in America. Central to that journey is one of the significant and influential people in Elvis’s life, Priscilla Presley (Olivia DeJonge).
Special features on digital, 4K Ultra HD and Blu-ray include “Bigger Than Life: The Making of Elvis”; “Rock ‘n Roll Royalty: The Music & Artists Behind Elvis”; “Fit for a King: The Style of Elvis”; “Viva Australia: Recreating Iconic Locations for Elvis”; and the “Trouble” lyric video.
Elvis has so far grossed nearly $130 million at the domestic box office, according to Box Office Mojo. The film earned $106 million internationally for a worldwide gross of more than $235 million.
