Elvis snagged three Golden Globe nominations on Monday (Dec. 12), including a best actor nod for the film’s star, Austin Butler. 

The Baz Lurhmann-directed biopic received Golden Globe nominations for best picture and best director as well. The 80th annual Golden Globe Awards are scheduled to air Jan. 10, 2023, at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.

Elvis Presley’s story will head back to the big screen in a forthcoming Sofia Coppola-directed biopic centered on his wife Priscilla Presley, with Jacob Elordi taking on the role of the King of Rock and Roll.

Talk of the upcoming film sparked Twitter comparisons to Butler’s role in Elvis, which is now streaming on HBO Max and other platforms. Elvis has became the second-highest-grossing musical biopic at the global box office (third domestically) and director Baz Lurhmann’s top-grossing film in the U.S. and Canada.

The film was released on Blu-ray and DVD in September, so if you’re looking for a gift idea, you can order a copy now, and have it delivered before Christmas. 

Butler stars alongside Tom Hanks, Olivia DeJonge, Dacre Montgomery and David Wenham in the film chronicling Presley’s story as told through the eyes of a complex relationship with his manager, Colonel Tom Parker (Hanks).

Presley died one day before he was slated to start a new tour. The 42-year-old singer was found unresponsive on the bathroom floor of his Graceland mansion on Aug. 16, 1977. This year marked the 45th anniversary of Presley’s death.

Aside from the complicated dynamic between Presley (Butler) and Parker, Elvis explores the rock legend’s rise from poverty to unprecedented stardom “against the backdrop of the evolving cultural landscape and loss of innocence in America.”

Elvis debuted in theaters in June and has grossed over $280 million worldwide. It was later released digitally on Prime Video, Vudu, Google Play and other platforms for $19.99.

But if you’re an HBO Max subscriber, you get to stream Elvis at no additional cost. Not subscribed? Monthly packages start at $9.99 a month and if you join HBO Max through Prime Video you’ll get a 7-day free trial. Find more HBO Max promo deals here.

Stream Elvis, Dune and The Batman and other movies, in addition to a range of exclusive shows, which includes Emmy-nominated series such as The White Lotus, Succession, Euphoria, Hacks, Insecure and Barry. The Game of Thrones prequel House of the Dragon, is streaming on HBO Max, in addition to Westworld, Gossip Girl, The Rehearsal, Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin, Rap Sh!tStarstruck, and more.

Meanwhile, Elvis looks to extend its box-office winning streak into Blu-ray and DVD sales. The film topped Amazon’s list of best-sellers in movies and TV, coming in ahead of 1888: A Yellowstone Origin Story, Where the Crawdads Sing, Top Gun: Maverick and Jurassic World Dominion. Fans can purchase a copy of Elvis at major retailers including Amazon, Walmart, Target and Best Buy.

The Blu-ray/DVD release comes with a digital copy of the film, and retails for $24.99. The DVD by itself is on sale for $9.99, and the 4K HD edition is discounted to $17.99.

Special features include Bigger Than Life: The Story of Elvis, Rock ‘n’ Roll: Royalty: The Music and Artists Behind Elvis, Fit for a King: The Style of Elvis, Viva Australia: Recreating Iconic Locations for Elvis and a lyric video for Presley’s song, “Trouble.”
