On June 24, director Baz Luhrmann’s anticipated new Elvis Presley biopic will hit theaters.

A new, extended trailer showing more scenes from Elvis, starring Austin Butler as Presley and Tom Hanks as Colonel Tom Parker, debuted this week.

Take a look:

The official synopsis:

The film explores the life and music of Elvis Presley (Butler), seen through the prism of his complicated relationship with his enigmatic manager, Colonel Tom Parker (Hanks). The story delves into the complex dynamic between Presley and Parker spanning over 20 years, from Presley’s rise to fame to his unprecedented stardom, against the backdrop of the evolving cultural landscape and loss of innocence in America. Central to that journey is one of the most significant and influential people in Elvis’s life, Priscilla Presley (Olivia DeJonge).
