|ELVIS & NIXON GETS RELEASE DATE, NEW POSTER
February 19, 2016 - Entertainment Weekly / Elvis Express Radio
Long Live The King and Hail To The Chief!
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY can reveal the theatrical release date and latest poster for Elvis & Nixon, Liza Johnson’s comedy-drama about Elvis Presley’s historic meeting with
President Richard Nixon at the White House in 1970.
The film, which stars Michael Shannon as Presley and Kevin Spacey as Nixon, will open April 22.
Underscoring the notion that truth is sometimes stranger than fiction, Elvis & Nixon recounts the fateful December morning when the King of Rock ’n’ Roll showed up on the lawn of
1600 Pennsylvania Ave. to request a meeting with POTUS. Presley was indeed granted an audience with Nixon, and asked to become a “federal agent at large” to help fight the war
The confab was immortalized in an Oval Office photo, which is said to be the most requested image in the National Archives.
Elvis & Nixon is written by Joey Sagal, Hanala Sagal, and Cary Elwes. The cast also includes Alex Pettyfer, Johnny Knoxville, Colin Hanks, and Sky Ferreira. Amazon Studios and
Bleecker Street are distributing the film.
