The film chronicles the life and career of Elvis from his early days as a child growing up in Mississippi to his rise as a rock and roll icon and movie star, along with his complex relationship with his manager.
Baz was the director and co-screenwriter of the film, along with Sam Bromell, Craig Pearce and Jeremy Donner, on a story he co-created with Jeremy.
The musical drama stars Austin and Tom Hanks, who plays his infamous manager Colonel Tom Parker.

Elvis – who has sold more than 1 billion records – was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2018 and has been recorded in several famous music halls.
Elvis died, aged 42, in 1977 of cardiac arrhythmias as a result of a toxic reaction to codeine.
Austin recently commented that he “lost touch” with his own personality while playing the eponymous character.
He told GQ Magazine: ‘You can lose touch with who you really are, and I certainly did when I was dating Elvis – not knowing who I was.’

In addition to the mental impact of playing Elvis, Austin also revealed that he was bedridden for a week after becoming unwell a day after filming was finished in March 2021.
Austin said he had been diagnosed with a virus that simulates appendicitis and said his body seemed to shut down right after filming.
He said, “I woke up at 4 a.m. in excruciating pain and was rushed to the hospital.”
Long-awaited: On Monday, Warner Bros. Pictures the second trailer for Elvis – which will hit theaters on June 24
