Butler garnered career-defining reviews in “Elvis,” director Baz Luhrmann’s kaleidoscopic biopic about the King of Rock ’n’ Roll. And it wasn’t only critics who swooned for Butler; audiences had their hips shaking as they went to theaters in droves, helping “Elvis” rack up $286 million at the global box office at the height of summer, which was the cherry on top of Butler landing that role of a lifetime.
