ELVIS PRESLEY has a new biopic coming out this year, but this time it is coming from the mind of the visionary director Baz Luhrmann. Riley Keough, the daughter of Lisa Marie Presley, has now spoken out about how 'emotional' watching the iconic star's life on the big screen was, despite the 'generational trauma' the family has endured.

Baz's Elvis Presley movie - Elvis - hits cinemas this summer and stars Austin Butler as the titular King of Rock and Roll in a picture that aims to retell the star's story from a different perspective. This time, the focus is placed on Colonel Tom Parker, who is shown as the villain of the story.

And previews for the movie have already started, beginning with Elvis' family. Most recently Riley has spoken out about watching the 'powerful' movie for the first time.]

Riley said: 'It was a very emotional experience. It’s very intense to watch when it’s your family.' She explained that she watched it alongside her father, sisters, mother - Lisa Marie Presley - and grandmother - Priscilla Presley. But although the movie tells her family's story, she admitted it was a little worrying.

She said the family 'don't really have any control' over what sort of film Baz made.

But, within the first few minutes, she knew the family would be happy.

Elvis Presley Video Tupelo's Own Elvis Presley DVD

Never before have we seen an Elvis Presley concert from the 1950's with sound. Until Now! The DVD Contains recently discovered unreleased film of Elvis performing 6 songs, including Heartbreak Hotel and Don't Be Cruel, live in Tupelo Mississippi 1956. Included we see a live performance of the elusive Long Tall Sally seen here for the first time ever. + Plus Bonus DVD Audio.

This is an excellent release no fan should be without it.

The 'parade' footage is good to see as it puts you in the right context with color and b&w footage. The interviews of Elvis' Parents are well worth hearing too. The afternoon show footage is wonderful and electrifying : Here is Elvis in his prime rocking and rolling in front of 11.000 people. Highly recommended.
