The soundtrack features Butler's renditions of Elvis songs, along with covers by Chris Isaak, Eminem & Ceelo Green, Jack White, Kacey Musgraves and more.

The trailer shows Parker exerting control over Presley's career, and Presley's mother (Helen Thomson) reassuring him his voice is a gift. The trailer also alludes to Presley's potential arrest and shows his controversial performance on the Ed Sullivan Show.

Butler wears black leather and white sequined Elvis outfits. His meeting and courtship of Priscilla (Olivia De Jonge) is also included.

Elvis was filming in Australia in 2020 when Hanks contracted COVID-19. Production halted while he recovered, and resumed when Hollywood instituted COVID-19 safety protocols.

Elvis opens in theaters June 24.
