Frost/Nixon Trailer

Movie Preview: Ron Howard's Frost/Nixon


"There's a reason they called him Tricky Dick."

The international trailer for the new Ron Howard movie, Frost/Nixon, has arrived and from what I can tell it looks pretty amazing. Based on the well-received play of the same title by Peter Morgan (the same man who wrote the script for The Queen), the movie chronicles the true story of a series of televised interviews Nixon gave to British journalist David Frost in 1977. Both lead actors in the movie played the same roles on the stage: Frank Langella as Nixon and Michael Sheen as Frost.

This is a really good trailer and I'm trying to figure out what's so gripping. Obviously the story is an interesting one but it doesn't look like it's presented in an overly simplistic way, and I get the sense that the shades of grey that defined this moment in time are handled with care. Also, the cast looks stellar. Langella appears to be pulling off Nixon just fine, Sheen already has me pinned to my seat, and then throw in Kevin Bacon, Sam Rockwell, Oliver Platt and Rebecca Hall and I'm sold.

If you want to learn more about the play, check out this interesting clip of The Charlie Rose show. The movie opens December 5 (hopefully) and to check out the trailer for yourself,

I'm so excited for this, have been for months. I adore Kevin Bacon and Ron Howard. And any trailer that uses a Who song has to be good, right? And I see a total Oscar campaign for Langella and Sheen.

hmmm i think that there's something to be said about putting a different spin on something that everyone knows so much about. maybe that's what makes it so compelling? i can';t wait to hear more about this and see what happens when it's released.
