Earlier today, Amazon studios released the first trailer for Elvis & Nixon. The film, directed by Liza Johnson, focuses on the infamous meeting between the King of Rock N’ Roll and President Nixon on December 21, 1970.
In this comedy Elvis, played by Michael Shannon, asks Kevin Spacey’s Nixon to be sworn in as an undercover Federal Agent. The trailer is a goofy 2 and a half minutes and shows Spacey and Shannon play their characters larger than life while slapping knuckles and hiding guns.
The film also stars Alex Pettyfer, Johnny Knoxville, Colin Hanks, Ashley Benson, Evan Peters, and Sky Ferreira. Elvis & Nixon will debut April of this year.
