Director Luhrmann’s musical biopic of legendary singing star Elvis Presley launched final week to sturdy field workplace numbers, grossing $31 million in its first weekend. That was adequate to simply barely edge out blockbuster Prime Gun: Maverick for the primary spot domestically.
Luhrmann after all isn’t any stranger to crafting over-the-top musical extravaganzas like Elvis. Again in 2001, the director wowed audiences together with his jukebox romance Moulin Rouge!, starring Nicole Kidman and Ewan McGregor in a classy mash-up of classic setting and up to date tunes. And Kidman after all later reunited with Luhrmann for the epic journey Australia, co-starring Jackman (the film, it was lately introduced, is about to be re-edited right into a Hulu miniseries).

Jackman hasn’t but gotten an opportunity to indicate those self same musical chops in a Luhrmann movie after all, however there’s nonetheless time for him and his Australia director to hook up on a film that requires Jackman to sing his coronary heart out a la Kidman in Moulin Rouge! or Butler in Elvis.

Elvis was after all a success even with out Jackman’s sort phrases, however maybe a number of extra individuals shall be prompted to see it now that the Australia star has given it his official seal of musical approval.
