‘Priscilla’ Trailer: Sofia Coppola Captures the Troubled Love Story of the Presleys With Cailee Spaeny and Jacob Elordi

A24 has released the official trailer for its upcoming Sofia Coppola feature “Priscilla.” 

The film is based on Priscilla Presley’s 1985 memoir “Elvis and Me,” which details personal accounts of her relationship with Elvis Presley. Flashes of their first meeting in Bad Nauheim, Germany, in 1959 to their 1967 Las Vegas wedding and birth of their daughter, Lisa Marie, are teased throughout the new footage. The trailer spotlights some of the couple’s most iconic moments together, as well as their eventual divorce. 

“Priscilla” stars Cailee Spaeny in the titular role and Jacob Elordi as the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll. The film’s centering of Priscilla’s perspective serves as a sharp counter to Baz Luhrmann’s 2022 biographical music drama “Elvis,” which starred Austin Butler and Olivia DeJonge as the Presleys and went on to receive several Oscar nominations. 

“Priscilla” received a seven-minute standing ovation at this year’s Venice Film Festival. Coppola and Priscilla attended the premiere alongside Spaeny and Elordi, as the actors were granted a SAG-AFTRA interim agreement to promote the film amid the strike. Spaeny won the best actress prize.

“Priscilla” is directed and written by Coppola, marking her first feature since 2020’s “On the Rocks.” She also produces alongside Youree Henry and Lorenzo Mieli. The film comes from Fremantle Company and American Zoetrope. A24 will release “Priscilla” in North America, with Vision Distribution in Italy, where it will become a Sky exclusive. Stage 6 Films/Sony Pictures International Releasing will distribute in the rest of the world.

“Priscilla” is set to open in theaters Nov. 3. Watch the official trailer below.
