45 years after rock and roll singer Elvis Presley died, a film depicting the life of the legend, “Elvis”, made its theatrical debut this summer. Actor Austin Butler was chosen to revive “The King” for a new generation, and “Elvis” has garnered little success, both financially and among critics.
Butler was joined on screen by Tom Hanks, who played Elvis’ manager, Colonel Tom Parker. “Elvis” is told through Parker’s eyes as he reflects on the time he spent with the singer and follows Elvis’ life, starting with his childhood in Mississippi.
The icon quickly rose to prominence for his soothing voice, handsome looks, and lewd dance moves. Unfortunately, as many know, his sudden urge to stardom also brought a series of struggles and hardships for Elvis, which are well documented in the biopic.

Elvis tries to deal with stress through drugs and infidelity. This problem worsened as his relationship with Colonel Parker began to deteriorate due to conflicting Elvis visions for his career. It’s this moment that Elvis’ ex-wife, Priscilla Presley, says is the most difficult moment she’s ever had to relive a movie in theaters.
“He wanted to make a serious film, and Colonel Parker probably should have stayed in public relations. He didn’t get Elvis where he wanted it to be, and that’s hard because I saw it myself,” he said. “I watched their bickering, I watched as Elvis tried to explain that he didn’t want to make a movie with girls and the beach. He really wanted to do serious things. So watching that movie brought back a lot of memories.”
Elvis and Priscilla were married for six years. Priscilla remained close to Elvis even after their divorce. He only lived four years after their official separation before dying at the age of 42.
“Speak No Evil” Movie Trailer Two Families Vacation Suddenly Turns Tense After Each One’s True Nature Is Revealed
Director Christian Tafdrup’s third feature film “Speak No Evil” has released a new trailer. In the trailer, two families are traveling for a vacation when an unexpected nightmare occurs.
The film tells the story of a family from Denmark and the Netherlands whose meeting in Tuscany prompts a trip to a Dutch family residence for a weekend getaway in the country. As they spend time together, a misunderstanding between the two families occurs and the friendliness of the Dutch family grows to a level that seems sinister.

The trailer initially reveals the excitement of what it’s like to make new vacation friends before slowly fading away when Danish and Dutch families meet at one’s house. Looking at their way of life, you can immediately see the difference between the two. The free-spirited nature of the Dutch family adheres to the conservative values of the Danish family.
Their friendship begins with coercion, when the father, Patrick, (Fedja van Huet) insists on asking Louise (Sidsel Siem Koch) to try wild boar, even though he is vegetarian. During their visit, the Danes were astonished by the screams they heard throughout the house at night and the way Patrick shouted at his children.
They finally decided to leave the house without saying goodbye, but were forced to return. Things happened to seem to go wrong after that.
