Take a look to this new poster of Elvis and Nixon, the upcoming comedy movie starring Michael Shannon, Kevin Spacey, Alex Pettyfer, and Johnny Knoxville:
On December 21st, 1970,
two of America’s greatest recording artists met for the first time.
In theaters this April.
“On a December morning in 1970, the King of Rock ’n Roll showed up on the lawn of the White House to request a meeting with the most powerful man in the world, President Nixon. Starring Academy Award® nominee Michael Shannon as Elvis Presley and two-time Academy Award® winner Kevin Spacey as Richard Nixon, comes the untold true story behind this revealing, yet humorous moment in the Oval Office forever immortalized in the most requested photograph in the National Archives.”
If you’re wondering why they’re calling Nixon “a recording artist”, well it’s because of his involvement in the Watergate scandal.
