Our first look at Liza Johnson’s comedy documenting the real-life meeting between the American icons.
Two men at the height of their powers, conscious they could not stay on top forever, both ripped with fear of the inevitable, sharing one famous private moment in the Oval office. ‘Elvis & Nixon’ recounts the morning of December 21st 1970, when the King of Rock’ n Roll (Michael Shannon) showed up on the White House lawn to request a meeting with the most powerful man in the world, President Richard Nixon (Kevin Spacey). He had a very urgent request: to be sworn in as an undercover Federal Agent at large. This intimate moment in the Oval office between two men at the height of their powers has never been told.
Also stars Alex Pettyfer (‘Magic Mike’), Colin Hanks (‘Fargo’), Evan Peters (‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’), Johnny Knoxville (‘Jackass’), Sky Ferreira (‘The Green Inferno’), and playwright Tracy Letts (‘Killer Joe,’ ‘August: Osage County’).
