17 Nov – After much anticipation, Baz Luhrmann ("Moulin Rouge", "The Great Gatsby") recently shared the first look of his new biopic, "Elvis" as a way to announce the new release date for the said movie.

On 16 November, the Australian filmmaker tweeted a clip from the upcoming movie, featuring Austin Butler in the role of the King of Rock and Roll himself, Elvis Presley.

In it, the actor could be seen walking towards the stage in the trademark Elvis strut, as the song "Suspicious Minds" plays over the image.
