    Stop putting actors and actresses in fat suits. There are actual fat performers with plenty of talent, jesus christ.

    I love Tom Hanks but why would ANYBODY want to see a movie about Elvis in 2022? I grew up loving Elvis but lost interest when he quit rock and roll.

    If he didnt make movies, I could just listen to him riffin’ it on anything. To me, he is in the same league as Quentin Tarantino in that respect, only a completely different character but such a pleasure to listen to. An electrifying and magnetizing charisma dispenser.

    Another movie that will leave the theaters without ever gaining any reception. With all the prosthetics Hanks looks like a fake animatronic of possible human. And the “Elvis” main actor might just left a cosplay tryout with a hefty mascara overdose. Again Hollywood is producing movies for a fantasy audience. Fascinating and despicable at the same time.

    Can not wait to see this Elvis movie. Who isn’t a fan of Elvis really? Austin performance meant to be outstanding and movie endorsed by Lisa Marie and Priscilla that’s all that needs to be said, can’t wait. And love Tom in everything he does so that’s a bonus for me.

    This is a great interview and Tom Hanks was the perfect choice to play Col. Tom Parker. When he states in the movie trailer, “Without me there would be no Elvis Presley.” It resonates in an iconic way. He captured the essence of the character to perfection. Austin Butler will win the Oscar hands down, he too has nailed his role to perfection in a unique way without really looking exactly like Elvis, quite an Accomplishment….Ok fans, these interviews and the stars are what Hollywood was all about and it somehow got lost….now in a unique way it’s back….I was lucky to experience the Elvis world he created back in the 50’s ….black & white television appearances, buying his 45’s for 39 cents, going to see Love Me Tender in a movie palace, that’s right a movie palace in Washington Heights, New York….years later Elvis live in Madison Square Garden…fast forward 3 1/2 years ago I began writing my book, never knowing that this monumental movie was in the works…Of course I haven’t seen the movie yet, only the trailers but the new book Elvis: The Quest for an Oscar gives an accurate account of why Elvis deserves an Oscar for not only his 31 movies but for his unequaled contributions to the movie industry. On another note everyone who had the opportunity to see Elvis movies in the theaters when they were originally released always came away with a unique and gratifying movie experience. Elvis was not only a movie star but a great actor also. Austin Butler will absolutely win the Oscar for his performance in “Elvis”. This is the movie you must see, Elvis: The Quest for an Oscar is the book you must read, 536 pages with a great cover. It’s time Hollywood recognized Elvis for his contributions to the movie industry…when Austin Butler gets his Oscar next year and he will, Hollywood needs to right the ship and give one to Elvis. For those who say I’m wrong, for those who want to criticize these feelings, remember what you are witnessing is coming from the greatness that Elvis possessed……Elvis never really left the building, he is forever right there in our minds and hearts….as Ed Sullivan would say “tonight this is going to be a really really big show right here on our stage, Elvis……Presley………

    It’s time to join the movement spread the word that Hollywood must recognize Elvis Presley for his immeasurable contributions to the movie industry…Elvis Presley’s time and Quest for an Oscar is now….

    He’s looking more svelte and trim in this interview than one I saw from just a few months ago. I wonder if he’s losing weight for a role or something.
