The new film Elvis may have just debuted in theaters a week ago but fans are already shaking in their boots over Austin Butler's performance as rock legend Elvis Presley. Whether you're interested in watching the movie because you're a fan of The Carrie Diaries actor or you want to see how Austin shapes up acting alongside Tom Hanks (who plays Elvis' manager Colonel Tom Parker), it's a movie people can't stop talking about.

The Baz Luhrmann-directed film is everything you could possibly want out of a musical biopic: Fancy costumes, covers of classic hits (you know, like "Trouble" or "Hound Dog"), a lot of family drama and a spot-on Elvis accent.

If you're wondering how you can watch Elvis from your home, you won't have to wait too long much longer before the movie becomes an option on a streaming platform. Read on to find out when and where you can watch the film about the King of Rock and Roll:

Where to watch or stream Elvis:

Tie up your blue suede shoes because we have some good news for you: Elvis will be available to stream on HBO Max later this summer. But when will that be exactly? From what we know so far, Elvis will most likely land on the streaming platform in August.

Because Elvis is being distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, it falls under the deal the studio has with HBO Max. This means that after 45 days of the movie playing in theaters, it will move to the popular streamer for its users to watch any time on demand. Although there's no official release date, since Elvis debuted on June 24, we're predicting that it won't be available to stream until August 8 at the earliest.

So how do you watch Elvis when it inevitably drops on HBO Max? First, you'll need to be subscribed to the streamer. If you're a first-time user, you can sign up for plans starting at $9.99 per month or $99.99 per year.

While you're waiting, did you know that Elvis was an actor outside of singing? You can watch one of his big films, Blue Hawaii, in the meantime. Or you can check out a two-part documentary further exploring his life in Elvis Presley: The Searcher, available on HBO Max. Enjoy!
