First Look At Shannon And Spacey As Elvis And Nixon

You read that correctly. Here's your first glimpse of the most unlikely buddy comedy of the year. 

Elvis & Nixon follows the unlikely, untold meeting that took place on 21 December 1970 between the King (Michael Shannon) and the 37th President of the USA (Kevin Spacey).

21 Jump Street it is not: the film captures an intimate moment between two men at the heights of their influence, with Elvis requesting an audience with Nixon with hopes of being sworn in as an honorary undercover federal agent.

Strange as the above image may look, that moment really did happen, with Elvis becoming a "federal agent at large" with respect to illicit drugs. 

Set to be screened at the Toronto International Film Festival, Elvis & Nixon is yet to receive an international release date, but we're keeping multiple fingers crossed that someone picks it up for distribution.
