Riley Keough Introduces ‘Elvis’ Sneak Peek, Praises ‘Mesmerizing’ Austin Butler at 2022 MTV Movie & TV Awards

Riley Keough Introduces Sneak Peek

As part of Sunday’s MTV Movie & TV Awards, Riley Keogh, Elvis Presley‘s great-granddaughter, gave a first glimpse at the upcoming Baz Luhrmann biopic about the King of Rock & Roll. As she entered the stage to show a never-before-seen clip from the film, Riley reflected on her grandfather’s legacy.

“In 1954, a young Mississippian walked into sun records and permanently changed music. My grandfather was that dude. The world around me was impacted by his existence even if we never had the chance to meet “Shared with Keough.

In order to capture an iconic character such as Elvis, “but happily, the visual genius Baz Luhrmann was up to the challenge,” she said. Austin Butler’s fascinating performance brought my family’s history to life, and I’m grateful to have this story in his hands.”

In the exclusive footage itself, audiences were able to see Butler’s portrayal and Luhrmann’s unique, kinetic visual style in action as they were shown one of the iconic artist’s most important and notorious concerts.

Following the footage, Keough introduced a special performance by Diplo and Swae Lee of “Tupelo Shuffle” from the upcoming biopic’s soundtrack.

Elsewhere on this page, you may find the trailer for the upcoming biopic of Elvis Presley, starring Austin Butler and Olivia DeJonge. Tom Hanks plays Colonel Tom Parker, Elvis’ longtime manager, in the eagerly anticipated film, which will be released in theatres on June 24.

Family members of the late Elvis Presley have been praising the film ahead of its premiere. Lisa Marie Presley, Riley’s mother, lauded the movie in May, calling it “nothing short of magnificent” after seeing it at a screening.

“Let me tell you something about the Baz Luhrmann film, Elvis, though: it’s great. Gorgeous, if not breathtaking “Elvis Presley remarked this before admiring Austin Butler’s performance in the film.. “It was a pleasure to watch Austin Butler portray my father’s innermost thoughts and feelings. His act, in my opinion, is unprecedented and finally done correctly and properly. (I’ll eat my own foot if he doesn’t get an Oscar for this.)”

Further, she noted that the video shows Baz’s undying affection for and respect for her father, and she and her family may be happy of the result for the rest of time. As Riley, Harper, and Finley walked away from the service, they were all visibly overcome with emotion and pride in their grandfather and his legacy in a level that I had never witnessed before.
