Priscilla Presley praises Austin Butler's performance in Elvis

In a recent Facebook post, Priscilla revealed she and Memphis Mafia member Jerry Schilling had recently attended a private screening of the upcoming Elvis film, directed by Baz Luhrmann. In her short review, she wrote, "Austin Butler, who played Elvis, is outstanding. Halfway through the film Jerry and I looked at each other and said WOW! Bravo to him... he knew he had big shoes to fill. He was extremely nervous playing this part. I can only imagine." Priscilla had comments for other members of the cast and crew, too - including Tom Hanks as Elvis' manager Colonel Tom Parker.
