In what year did Elvis Presley pass away?

Expectations were high and Lisa Marie hoped that her father's portrayal would live up to it. Austin Butler, who plays the main role in the film, did not disappoint her.

"It's almost as if [Butler] channelled him," she said. "He put everything he had, his heart, his soul, everything he had into researching, reading, watching, learning."

The actor really convinced the Presley family in the role of Elvis. "He honoured him in every way possible that you could possibly honour," Lisa Marie Presley added.

Her mother Priscilla Presley also saw the film and is convinced that Elvis Presley would have loved it...
