Cannes is burning with love this Wednesday. The whole film crew Elvis creates the event during this 75th edition of the Cannes Film Festival. And many of them have made the trip to discover this biopic which promises to be rock’n’roll! Kaia Gerber caused a stir in a simple but terrifically effective red dress. The beautiful 20-year-old brunette was obviously present to support her attractive companion, Austin Bustler, hero of the film presented this evening.
The couple weren’t the only ones to catch the eye as they climbed the stairs. Tom Hanks was chic and understated as usual. The film crew was accompanied by Priscilla Presley, the King’s former wife. Adriana Lima (very pregnant), Shakira, Kylie Minogue, Ricky Martin, Emmanuelle Béart, Bilal Hassani, Georgina Rodríguez, Noomi Rapace, Camélia Jordana, Sharon Stone, Candice Swanepoel, Winnie Harlow and Diane Leyre (Miss France 2022) were also from the part.
Elvis traces the life and musical work of Elvis Presley through the prism of his complex relationship with his mysterious manager, Colonel Tom Parker. The film explores their relationship over two decades, from the singer’s rise to unparalleled stardom, against a backdrop of cultural upheaval and America’s discovery of the end of innocence.
In this film by Baz Luhrmann (Romeo + Juliet, Moulin Rouge! and Australia), it is the incomparable Tom Hanks who embodies the formidable manager. The “King” is camped by the popular Austin Butler, who we have already seen in the series The Carrie Diaries as well as in movies Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood and The Dead Don’t Die, both presented at Cannes. Austin Butler has also made a lot of noise with his love life. If he has long frequented Vanessa Hudgens, he is obviously today in a relationship with model Kaia Garber, daughter of supermodel Cindy Crawford.
And Elvis Presley’s granddaughter, Riley Keough who just presented at Cannes war ponyhis first steps in directing, admitted to AFP that he cried “five minutes after the start of the film“. After that, “I haven’t stopped, so I have to watch it again“, she confided on the Croisette. Will the 2:39 film be exhaustive on the life of Elvis, an artist who has often familiarized himself with the dark side of the rock’n’roll circus? Answer in dark rooms next June 22.
The days pass and the stars accumulate in Cannes. This 75th edition of the Cannes Film Festival attracts the biggest international players, but not only. Music stars are also present. We saw Aya Nakamura, with her companion Vladimir, but also Kylie Minogue, Kendji Girac, and Carla Bruni, who came to attend the screening of the film by her sister Valeria Bruni Tedeschi with her family, The Almond Trees.
