A24 has just unveiled the official trailer for the much-anticipated film, “Priscilla,” directed by Sofia Coppola. This cinematic gem shines a spotlight on Priscilla Presley, one of the most iconic women in the music industry. The narrative draws from Priscilla’s personal memoir, “Elvis and Me,” zeroing in on the woman who stood beside the King of Rock.
For a full decade, Elvis and Priscilla shared an unbreakable bond, six of those years consecrated in marriage.
The trailer paints a vivid picture of their passionate yet tumultuous love story, brought to life by the stellar performances of Jacob Elordi and Cailee Spaeny.
The film embarks on a journey through their love story, commencing when Priscilla was merely a 14-year-old teenager who serendipitously met the 24-year-old Elvis in Germany. From the confines of school classrooms to the opulence of Graceland, viewers witness Priscilla’s evolution from a young girl into a fashion icon and devoted mother. Along this path, she confronts the challenges of fame while skillfully navigating her husband’s unpredictable mood swings.
“Priscilla” made its debut at the Venice Film Festival, a feat not easily accomplished due to the SAG-AFTRA strike.
An interim agreement was brokered to ensure the film’s stars could attend and promote this cinematic masterpiece. This independent project held a special place in Sofia Coppola’s heart. She even contemplated auctioning a pickleball game with Jacob Elordi to raise additional funds for the film. Coppola disclosed that, in light of restrictions surrounding the use of Elvis’s music, creativity was key to bringing the story to life.
Save the date: November 3rd marks the release of “Priscilla.”
Prepare to be enthralled by the captivating narrative of Elvis and Priscilla Presley’s explosive romance, as Sofia Coppola’s film promises to unveil the untold story behind the King of Rock and his queen. With its arresting portrayal, “Priscilla” is poised to be a cinematic masterpiece, destined to leave a lasting impression on audiences worldwide.
