Sofia Coppola tells the other side of the iconic love story in her upcoming biopic.
Sofia Coppola is ready to tell the other side of an iconic love story.
"I happen to be very fond of your daughter," Elvis tells Priscilla's parents in the trailer. "She's much more mature than her age." (In real life, the couple first met when Elvis was 24 and Priscilla was 14.)
The clip also shows how Elvis made over his bride-to-be, encouraging her to dye her hair and wear more eye makeup.
"I don't know if I like it," Priscilla says nervously, to which Elvis replies, "What do you mean you don't know if you like it?"
To be released in October, the film is based on Priscilla's 1985 memoir, Elvis and Me, which provided an intimate account of her life with the superstar performer. Coppola wrote and directed the film -- her second feature focused on an embattled real-life woman best known for her very public marriage, following 2006's Marie Antoinette.
Elvis and Priscilla wed in 1967 and had one child, Lisa Marie Presley. They divorced in 1973, before Elvis' death four years later. Priscilla went on to have a son, Navarone Garibaldi, with her longtime love, Marco Antonio Garcia -- the pair were together from the mid-1980s until 2006.
Elordi and Spaeny are the latest actors to take on the roles of Elvis and Priscilla, following in the footsteps of Austin Butler and Olivia DeJonge in Baz Luhrmann's Elvis, which earned nominations for Best Picture and Best Actor at the 2023 Academy Awards.
Following her private viewing of Elvis, Priscilla couldn't help but share her honest review with fans on her official Facebook page, praising Butler for his "outstanding" performance as Elvis.
"This story is about Elvis and Colonel Parker's relationship. It is a true story told brilliantly and creatively that only Baz, in his unique artistic way, could have delivered," Priscilla wrote. "Austin Butler, who played Elvis is outstanding."
Priscilla also stars Raine Monroe Boland and Emily Mitchell as Lisa Marie Presley at different ages, as well as Dagmara Domińczyk, Jorja Cadence, Rodrigo Fernandez-Stoll, Luke Humphrey and more. The movie hits theaters on Nov. 3.
