Fans won’t have to wait too long to see Elvis Presley come back to life on screen when Baz Luhrmann’s “Elvis” hits theaters this Friday.
But it’s already bringing up “generational trauma” for the late king of rock and roll’s daughter, Lisa Marie Presley, and her own daughter, Riley Keough.
“It simply came to our notice then [experience]”Lisa Marie said in a teaser for “Exclusively Elvis: A Special Edition of 20/20,” airing at 10 pm ET Tuesday on ABC.
“Like Riley said, it just brings up such generational trauma – in a good way. In a good way, ”said Lisa Marie, 54, alongside Keough, 33.
“Riley, 5 minutes in, was already, like, gone – ‘I’m done.’ She was already crying and I was crying, ”mother of four Lisa Marie continued before“ Zola ”star Keough interjected:“ It was really intense. As a film, it’s just an exceptional film. “
“Elvis” stars Austin Butler as the legendary musician, as well as Tom Hanks as his manager, Colonel Tom Parker, plus Luke Bracey, Olivia DeJonge and Richard Roxburgh.
Lisa Marie has continuously praised the forthcoming biopic, once noting how the flick is “nothing short of spectacular” in an Instagram post earlier this month.
“[‘Elvis’] is absolutely exquisite, ”she went on. “Austin Butler channeled and embodied my father’s heart and soul beautifully. In my humble opinion, his performance is unprecedented and FINALLY done accurately and respectfully. “
She also shared her wish for Butler, 30, to receive an Oscar for her performance next year.
The “To Whom It May Concern” singer added that she doesn’t post much since she is and “will forever be mourning the loss” of her son, Benjamin Keough.
Benjamin died by suicide in 2020 when he was just 27 years old from a shotgun wound. “Navigating through this hideous grief that absolutely destroyed and shattered my heart and my soul into almost nothing has swallowed me whole,” Lisa Marie scribed on social media.
“It breaks my heart that my son isn’t here to see it,” the “Dirty Laundry” crooner added. “He would have absolutely loved it as well. I can’t tell you enough how much I love this film and I hope you love it, too. “
