In a career-defining performance that many consider to be the finest movie portrayal of The King to date, Kurt Russell (who was nominated for the Outstanding Lead Actor Emmy for his role) stars in the title role in a movie that would mark the first of his now legendary five collaborations with Carpenter (Escape From New York; The Thing; Big Trouble In Little China; Escape From LA).
Tracing Elvis' life from 1945 - when, as a ten-year-old boy living in Tupelo, Mississippi, he received his first guitar - to 1969 and his triumphant return to the stage at the International Hotel in Las Vegas (his first public shows in nearly ten years), Elvis lovingly and faithfully recreates the key moments in the King's life, from his meteoric rise to fame, his time in the army, his mother's untimely death and his fateful meeting with Priscilla Beaulieu to his ill-advised movie career, the birth of his daughter, Lisa Marie, and his incredible comeback.
