Elvis & Nixon, An Amazon Studios Film About the Day in 1970 When Elvis Unexpectedly Dropped in on the President

Elvis & Nixon, an upcoming film from Amazon Studios, tells the previously untold humorous story of the day in December 1970 when the King of Rock & Roll (Michael Shannon) paid an unexpected visit to the White House in search of a meeting with then President Richard Nixon (Kevin Spacey) and the chaos that ensued thereafter. Interestingly enough, the United States National Archive has publicly stated that the photo of Elvis Presley shaking hands with the President of the United States is the most requested image ever.

Elvis & Nixon is scheduled to premiere in April 2016.
