Broadsheet Trailer Park: Elvis & Nixon



What you may need to know:

1. In December 1970, Elvis Presley (Michael Shannon) engineered a meeting with Richard Nixon (Kevin Spacey) to discuss The Beatles and those goddamned hippies.

2. Co-written by The Princess Bride’s Man in Black (Cary Elwes).

3. Another presidential role for Spacey.

4. Bruce Campbell would’ve done a 2-for-1 deal on both parts.

Pffft… I want to see ELVISZILLA VS. NIXODON!!! Two mechagiant monstrosities battling in the skies over Washington.

6. Broadsheet prognosis: Thangyuverrymuch.

Release Date:
June 24.

    First Superman vs Batman, now this. Hollywood has run out of ideas.

      And the one thing he wasn’t at that stage was fugly – he was stunningly gorgeous in ’68

    Yikes – seriously over-acted King there. Still, it tickles, so I’ll be watching it.

    Don’t think Spacey is a good choice for the role.

    Seeing him in that role inevitably forces us to think of Underwood. Underwood & Nixon have some similarities but are actually very different characters.
