Elvis and Nixon trailer, Kevin Spacey and Michael Shannon star in historical comedy

Bleecker Street released the first trailer for “Elvis and Nixon,” a new comedy that is set to release later this spring. The trailer was released via social-media and YouTube earlier today and if this is the first time you are hearing about the project, it’s definitely worth the look.

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.

The film is set to release this April, distributed through Bleecker Street and Amazon Studios. Liza Johnson directed the project, working from a script written by Joey and Hanala Sagal with Cary Elwes.

Joining Michael Shannon and Kevin Spacey in the film are Alex Pettyfer, Johnny Knoxville, Colin Hanks, Evan Peters, Sky Ferreira, Tracy Letts, Tate Donovan, Ashley Benson
