‘s Alex Billington has posted the European (i.e., German subtitled) trailer for Ron Howard‘s Frost/Nixon (Universal, 12.5).

For what it’s worth, Frank Langella seems a little more Nixon-like in this than he did in the Broadway play, which required broader strokes and playing to the upper balcony. (On top of which his size — Langella is a big man — couldn’t be disguised on stage, but it can here.) Michael Sheen, also, naturally, seems to be using more subtlety in his performance as David Frost.
But you know what I’m also feeling? That the name-level supporting players — Oliver Platt, Sam Rockwell, Rebecca Hall, Toby Jones, Matthew Macfadyen — are going to deliver first-rate snap, edge, smarts. We know Langella and Sheen are going to score, but the second bananas are going to bring it home.
