When was the last time we had a biopic as sprawling and lively as Baz Luhrmann's Elvis?


The Elvis movie soundtrack not only includes many of the iconic musician’s great hits, but also features a handful of remixed versions, covers, and original tracks by modern artists including Doja Cat, Eminem, and Måneskin.

Austin Butler (The Dead Don't Die, Once Upon A Time in Hollywood), who stars as the King of Rock and Roll, also sang quite a few Elvis songs himself.

Of course, this is nothing new for Baz Luhrmann.

The director has previously displayed his fascination with mixing the classic and the modern in films such as Moulin Rouge! and The Great Gatsby, though often to mixed reviews.

What has Baz Luhrmann said about the Elvis 2022 soundtrack?

"I tried to be very balanced," Luhrmann said of the soundtrack to RadioTimes.com during an exclusive interview. "I mean all the young Elvis is sung by Austin [Butler]. And I have classics, but it's done for a purpose.

"I mean, the example I quite often use is, if you look at Hound Dog...Hound Dog in its time would have been read for the street languages. So when Doja [Cat] sings it, well she just translated that. So I'm just trying to make sure younger audiences get what it felt like as well as what it was.

"Eminem does that track at the end because it ends with Elvis's influence on music," he added. "You ask Eminem about his point of view about Elvis – he grew up in the black community [as well].

"And Måneskin doing If I Can Dream as well, it's just all of these artists in one way or another understand that Elvis didn't invent rock and roll, but he was the first teenage kind of idol.

"He was the first one that was suddenly famous globally overnight, there were no 19-year-olds, there were no teenagers as a commercial force. So they all understand, Elvis has an effect on them. For most young people, he's just kind of a Halloween costume."

Elvis is released in UK cinemas on Friday 24th June 2022. Visit our Movies hub for the latest news and features, or find something to watch tonight with our TV Guide.
