To celebrate 85 years of Elvis Presley and 50 years since the film’s original 1970 release, the King returns to cinemas – remastered – with Elvis: That’s The Way It Is: Special Edition, an unmissable event for fans.
On July 31, 1970, in Las Vegas, Nevada, Elvis Presley staged a triumphant return to the concert stage from which he had been absent for almost a decade. His series of concerts broke all box office records and completely reenergized the career of the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll.
This feature-length documentary and concert film features performances including “Love Me Tender,” “Heartbreak Hotel” and “Suspicious Minds.” Crossing the footlights, revealing the legendary singer as a man preparing for an emotional career comeback, the fans who travelled from all over the world for this history-making event…. and the electrifying live performance of the man who gave us rock ‘n’ roll.
Kymberli Frueh, SVP, Programming and Content Acquisitions of Trafalgar Releasing has said on the release: “Following the success in the UK and other territories earlier in the year, we’re so excited to be partnering with Warner Bros. and Authentic Brands Group to be bringing this seminal film to cinemas in North America. The film marks the start of a new global event cinema distribution relationship between Trafalgar Releasing and Warner Bros. and we look forward to collaborating closely with their team.”
