Inspired by Priscilla Presley's 1985 memoir Elvis and Me, the film will recount the troubled love story between Priscilla and the rock-and-roll superstar.

A stylish teaser trailer has also given fans their first glimpse of the film, recreating Priscilla's first meeting with Elvis at a party in 1959 while he was stationed with the US Military in Germany. She was 14 at the time, while Elvis was 24 years old.

As well as depicting the couple's love story, the film is also said to show a different side to Elvis beyond his public persona and recount Priscilla's recollection of their relationship after his death.
