"He could really help us with the youth vote."

"He is one of the most famous men on the planet. He loves guns and hates The Beatles," says a White House aide, as he attempts to explain Elvis Presley to Richard Nixon.

The new trailer for the comedy Elvis & Nixon documents the strange dynamic between a disgraced president and the world's biggest musician. Kevin Spacey takes on the role of Richard Nixon, while Michael Shannon plays the "Hound Dog" musician. 

The trailer sees Elvis requesting to go undercover as a federal agent as a means of infiltrating the Communist party. He offers to provide his own firearms.

A Nixon staffer played by Colin Hanks, concedes, "He could really help us with the youth vote."
