Watch: Kevin Spacey & Michael Shannon Star in 'Elvis & Nixon' Trailer
"Everybody loves Elvis. He could really help us with the youth vote." Bleecker Street and Amazon have debuted the first official trailer for Elvis & Nixon, a comedy about the time when Richard Nixon met Elvis Presley. Nixon is played by Kevin Spacey, and Presley is played by Michael Shannon, and they both look awesome despite plenty of obvious make-up. Everyone looks like they're having so much fun making this. The cast includes Evan Peters, Ashley Benson, Alex Pettyfer, Colin Hanks, Johnny Knoxville and Tate Donovan. This looks surprisingly good, with plenty of laughs and revelations. And Michael Shannon!
Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Liza Johnson's Elvis & Nixon, found via The Film Stage:
A recreation of the meeting at the White House between Elvis Presley and President Richard Nixon. On the morning of December 21, 1970, actor-singer Elvis Presley shows up to the White House and requests for an urgent meeting with President Richard Nixon, to swear him in as an undercover agent in the Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs. Elvis & Nixon is directed by filmmaker Liza Johnson, of the films Return, Hateship Loveship and a number of short films previously. The screenplay is written by Joey Sagal & Hanala Sagal & Cary Elwes. The film was produced by Bleecker Street Media and Amazon, and hasn't premiered anywhere yet. Liza Johnson's Elvis & Nixon arrives in theaters this April. Anyone interested?
