Press Release - Experience the King Like Never Before With ‘Elvis Unleashed,’ in Movie Theaters Worldwide on October 7 & 10 Only
Two-Day Event Features Never-Before-Seen Outtakes and Performances in Theaters From the Iconic ‘68 Elvis Comeback Special. Also Features Exclusive Interviews With Dennis Quaid, Jade Jackson and Steve Binder
Elvis Presley returns to big screens across the globe this fall with the new music special, “Elvis Unleashed,” featuring previously unseen footage on movie theater screens of Elvis as he filmed the iconic “68 Comeback Special.” The two-day cinema event, which includes outtakes and performances that reveal a new side of the King, will air in cinemas on October 7, with an encore screening on October 10.
[E.E.R Adds: WOW "PREVIOUSLY UNSEEN FOOTAGE" and "NEVER-BEFORE-SEEN OUTTAKES".... Can you believe this? Well DON'T! There is NO unseen footage and there is NO never before seen outtakes. How are they allowed to say this if it isn't true? Simple, it's all in the wording. "Never-Before-Seen outtakes and performances IN THEATERS" and then "previously unseen footage on movie theater screens". So, we've seen it all before on home DVD and Blu-Ray, but not in theaters or on theater screens. So EPE and Fathom Events have not broken any advertising laws. But what they have done is certainly a devious, unnecessary attempt to fool Elvis fans with their little trick game of words.]
Each screening will include a new 30-minute segment with Los Angeles Times lead music writer Randy Lewis in conversation with actor Dennis Quaid, rising pop/country artist Jade Jackson and the esteemed director and producer of the “68 Elvis Comeback Special,” Steve Binder, to discuss Elvis’s life and legacy. Quaid and Jackson are set to perform some Elvis classics, while Randy Lewis discusses the behind-the-scenes interactions that Binder had with Elvis and his manager Colonel Parker, as well as celebrating the King.
This brand-new content is produced by Spencer Proffer, CEO of Meteor 17, and Dave Harding, in association with Authentic Brands Group.

The “’Elvis ’68 Comeback Special” was a major milestone in Elvis Presley’s storied career, marking his first live television performance in seven years and pioneering the “unplugged” performance style with an acoustic set. “Elvis Unleashed” captures the spontaneous moments and stories behind the legendary special, and sheds new light on Elvis as a cultural icon.
“We are thrilled to share this wonderful tribute to Elvis with his fans around the world,” Fathom Events CEO Ray Nutt said. “This special not only provides a behind-the-curtain look at Elvis’s most memorable live performance, it also explores his impact on today’s music culture and performers.”
