The first, incredibly compelling trailer for the Ron Howard directed movie Frost/Nixon is here. Unlike most movies about Nixon, this one takes place after he was kicked out of the presidency, for the villainy of Watergate. It retells the story of a series of television interviews between British talk-show host David Frost (played by Michael Sheen) and Tricky Dick (Frank Langella), which took place after his resignation.

Michael Sheen will really grab your attention, and anything with Kevin Bacon in can’t be bad, Ron Howard should regain some of his reputation for this too after the underwhelming Da Vinci Code. Watch the trailer here and watch the movie in theaters December 5th.
