Frank Langella and Michael Sheen in Frost/Nixon

If there is one thing that should be abundantly clear at this point, it is that this is an election year. From Oliver Stone’s W., a biopic of still-President George W. Bush to David Zucker’s conservative-tilted spoof movie An American Carol, it seems that everyone is out to make their own political movie. And another filmmaker throwing his hat into the ring is Ron Howard, who has been spending his directorial time on Frost/Nixon, a dramatic retelling of the post-Watergate interviews between British talk-show host David Frost and former president Richard Nixon.

Filled with a top-notch cast that includes Frank Langella as Richard Nixon, Michael Sheen as David Frost, along with supporting performances from Kevin Bacon, Oliver Platt, Toby Jones, Sam Rockwell and Rebecca Hall, this one could be gunning for some hardware come awards season. And if the cast isn’t enough to sell you, have a look at this first trailer, which was leaked online by German site Filmtrailer.dk:

At the Request of Universal Studios, we have removed this trailer.

What do you think of the first trailer for Frost/Nixon?
