M&Ms fan Elvis Presley wanted Dr Pepper drinker Richard Nixon to authorise him to go undercover to stop the degeneration of America’s youth in the early 1970s.
With Michael Shannon as the gun-toting rock-and-roll star and Kevin Spacey as the President, more famous for his downfall a couple of years ahead, director Liza Johnson delivers an unexpectedly sharp, funny and zippy real-life tale of absurdity which would have been surreal beyond measure for everyone involved – except for The King himself.
Michael Shannon and Kevin Spacey have both played villains in different reboots of the same Hollywood franchise.
Elvis & Nixon is released in the UK on Friday 24th June 2016. We’ll announce the winners that weekend.
