As a matter of fact, the movie is the highest grossing movie of 2022 at $286 M Worldwide. Actor Austin Butler plays Elvis, and recently has enjoyed high praises for his role in the movie. His fanbase has grown tremendously and he even would host Saturday Night Live on December 17th. Also, singer/rapper Lizzo joined Butler as the musical guest, and even had a skit with her.

Further, the film has received great reviews, saying that Butler captures the true essence of Elvis as a person. Even the Presley family had good things to say. Notably, on June 12th, three generations of the Presley family were in attendance for a special screening of Elvis at Graceland. The King of Rock & Roll’s ex-wife Priscilla, their daughter Lisa Marie, and Priscilla’s granddaughter, Riley Keough, came to the screening.

“In my life it’s been one disappointment after the other in terms of people portraying my father,” Lisa-Marie told the crowd. “In the various films or attempts to. Bless their hearts, I’m sure they meant well.” Additionally reiterating, “I’m sure they meant well, but let me just tell you something. At this point, I tell you this with all my heart, that’s the reason I’m here. It’s been done right.”
