Dec. 21, 1970 photo of Nixon and Presley is the most-requested image in the National Archive.
This photo of Nixon and Presley is the most-requested image among millions stored in the National Archive.

 

The story behind a photo in the U.S. National Archives might not sound like the greatest topic for a movie. But when the picture shows the trippy meeting in 1970 between President Nixon and Elvis Presley at the White House, suddenly the idea sounds a lot more intriguing.

In the trailer for Elvis & Nixon (watch below) Kevin Spacey plays Nixon and Michael Shannon is the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll. Elvis visits Washington, D.C., to meet the President  and to get a federal law enforcement badge.

Elvis & Nixon opens April 15.
