Update: And the trailer has been yanked.
The first international trailer for Ron Howard’s upcoming adaptation of the stage play Nixon/Frost has hit the internet. The play and film tells the behind the scenes story of a series of interviews former President Richard Nixon did with British talk show host David Frost following Nixon’s resignation over the Wtaergate scandal. The film carries over the original stage production’s casting of Michael Sheen as Frost and Frank Langella as Nixon. Interestingly, while Langella doesn’t much resemble Nixon, he does have many of his mannerisms down. It should be an interesting performance to watch. We’ll all get to watch it when it comes out on December 5.
