3000 Miles to Graceland (2001)

It's International Elvis Week in Las Vegas, where the strip is flooded by a sea of King wannabes decked out in jump suits and sideburns. But five of the impersonators swaggering into the Riviera Hotel and Casino are toting heavy weaponry in their guitar cases.

It's the heist of a lifetime, orchestrated by ex-con Michael (KURT RUSSELL) and his cunning former cellmate, Murphy (KEVIN COSTNER). The crooked Elvises steal away with $3.2 million, leaving the hotel in ruins and a high body count in their wake as they make a dramatic rooftop escape via helicopter.

But when Murphy betrays his men, attempting to murder each one and keep the full stash for himself, Michael escapes with the loot and sets out to launder the marked currency. Along the way, he hooks up with Cybil (COURTENEY COX), a beautiful grifter with small-town baggage and big-time dreams. Determined to retire from his life of crime but unable to shake his opportunistic one-night stand, Michael careens through state lines with Cybil by his side, Murphy on his tail and law enforcement in hot pursuit.
