‘Elvis & Nixon’ First Picture Shows Off Spacey & Shannon

As reported earlier on Kulture Shocked, Kevin Spacey and Michael Shannon would be playing Richard Nixon and Elvis Presley in Elvis & Nixon. Now we get our first look at the two in the film. While it’s hard to tell how well Shannon pulls off the Elvis look from this angle, Spacey doesn’t look to have the typical Nixon-esque makeup applied to him, focusing more on a receding hairline than a large nose. I can’t wait to see this movie when it comes out as it will probably be interesting at least. 

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.
