Lisa Marie Presley is thrilled with the new film about her late father Elvis Presley.


The 54-year-old star took to Instagram to hail Baz Luhrmann's movie about the King of Rock and Roll which stars Austin Butler as the icon and Tom Hanks as his manager Colonel Tom Parker. 


Lisa Marie, who has children Riley, Harper and Finley from relationships with Danny Keough and Michael Lockwood, wrote: "You can feel and witness Baz's pure love, care, and respect for my father throughout this beautiful film. And it is finally something that myself and my children and their children can be proud of forever."


Lisa Marie  who has previously been married to Michael Jackson and Nicolas Cage also reflected on how much her son Benjamin Keough would have loved the movie, which makes its world premieres at the upcoming Cannes Film Festival. 

"What moved me to tears as well as watching Riley and Harper, and Finley afterwards, all three visibly overwhelmed in the best possible way, and so filled with pride about their grandfather and his legacy in the way that I have not previously experienced," she wrote. "It breaks my heart that my son isn't here to see it. He would have absolutely loved it as well."

Keough died from a self-inflicted shotgun wound at the age of 27 in July 2020. 


She also praised Butler's performance and joked that she would "eat her own foot" if the star didn't win an Oscar for his portrayal of Elvis.


She quipped: "In my humble opinion, his performance in unprecedented and FINALLY done accurately and respectfully (sic)."

Lisa Marie thanked Luhrmann for his efforts on the film and feels it is a perfect tribute to her father.


She wrote: "I can't tell you enough how much I love this film and I hope you love it too. Everyone involved poured their hearts and souls into it, which is evidenced in their performances.


"Baz, your utter genius combined with your love and respect for my father and this project is so beautiful and so inspiring."

Elvis opens in Singapore cinemas on June 23.
