VIDEO Elvis and Nixon Clip with Kevin Spacey

In late 1970 the White House received a request from someone who wanted to meet the President of the United States. That wasn't unusual but what made the situation a little more unique is who the request came from - none other than Elvis Presley.

A meeting between these two titans of history actually took place in December 1970, and now there's a movie to tell the tale. It stars two greats - Michael Shannon as Elvis and Kevin Spacey as President Nixon and gives you a glimpse at one of the strangest meetings in modern history.

We've got a clip from the film featuring Spacey below, check it out.

Nixon has some things to say about the character of Elvis, and we're pretty sure he's going to find out the real man is a bit more complicated. Colin Hanks also pops up in the scene and the film features the likes of Evan Peters, Tate Donovan and Johnny Knoxville in the cast, with Liza Johnson at the helm.

Here's one for fact fans, the film was co-written by Cary Elwes - yes that's Wesley from The Princess Bride, and the unfortunate fellow in Saw...

Elvis & Nixon is in cinemas in Ireland from the 24th of June, 2016.
