Oscar Season Kickstarts! Frost/Nixon Trailer Released

Aaaaand they’re off! We’re barely out of summer blockbuster and silly movie season (Pineapple Express, anyone?) but the Oscar race is already on for the fall. Directors will be releasing their very serious and important films for the Academy’s consideration. One of the first out the gate with a new trailer is Ron Howard’s Frost/Nixon, based on the acclaimed Broadway play about reporter David Frost’s televised talks with Richard Nixon after he resigned. Frank Langella is playing the fibbing president and Michael Sheen plays Mr. Frost. The movie will be in theaters Dec. 5, but slashfilm has the trailer for a preview.
