Appendix of the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll
Elvis Presley’s family is immortalized in Hollywood
Just in time for the premiere of the biopic ‘Elvis,’ the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll’s family is honored. Elvis’ ex-wife Priscilla Presley, his daughter and grandchildren are allowed to immortalize themselves with cement handprints in Hollywood. Priscilla is completely excited about the movie which is now coming to theaters.
The family of music icon Elvis Presley, who died in 1977, were honored at a ceremony outside the TCL Chinese Theater in Hollywood on Tuesday. Priscilla Presley, 77, her daughter Lisa Marie Presley, 54, their 33-year-old daughter Riley Keough and 13-year-old twins Harper Vivienne Ann Lockwood and Finley Aaron Love Lockwood have been allowed to have their handprints immortalized in cement.
The centuries-old tradition of hand-printing on Hollywood Boulevard began in the 1920s. Each year, several million people visit the world-famous movie theater to view the handprints of celebrities on the cement floor of the forecourt. There you can now see the footprints of three generations of Presley. Elvis and Priscilla Presley were married from 1967 to 1973. Their daughter Lisa Marie was born in 1968 and has three daughters. His son Benjamin Keough died in July 2020 at the age of 27.
Priscilla Presley excited about the biopic
Austin Butler, who plays Elvis Presley in a new biopic, and director Baz Luhrmann also attended the ceremony. In “Elvis”, young singer Elvis Presley (Butler) of Tupelo, Mississippi, became the music industry’s biggest sensation almost overnight.
His lascivious way of performing on stage attracts huge crowds of fans and almost as many moral guardians who fear that Elvis is the personification of the fate of youth. The complicated relationship with his manager, Colonel Tom Parker (played by Tom Hanks) also increasingly affects Elvis. The film will be released in German cinemas on June 23.
In a Facebook post, among others, Priscilla Presley has already praised the film and particularly highlighted the acting performance of lead actor Austin Butler. “Austin Butler playing Elvis is amazing,” she wrote, adding, “WOW!!! Well done…he knew he had big shoes to fill.” Presley also found words of praise for director Luhrmann. The true story is told “brilliantly and creatively” in a way “only Baz can do it in his own unique and artistic way”.
