Cinema Royale: Talking Baz Luhrmann’s ‘Elvis’ And How It’s Like A Superhero Origin Story (Special Guest: Julian Lytle)

Slip on your blue suede shoes, check in to the Heartbreak Hotel, and join Cinema Royale for a review of Baz Luhrmann’s diamond-studded Elvis biopic! Of course, this being a Luhrmann joint, it ain’t no ordinary rock music biopic, more like a superhero origin story with Austin Butler as the heroic Presley and Tom Hanks as the evil Col. Tom Parker! Joining me to talk about the film is fellow Luhrmann fan, Julian Lytle!

All of this, plus we pick the best Marvel hero for Baz Luhrmann to make a movie about, and discuss the director’s recut Australia as a limited series!

You get this and more, of course! You can subscribe to Cinema Royale wherever you get your podcasts, and be sure to do the same on Youtube! Follow the Punch Drunk Critics and Cinema Royale!
