Ron Howard's Frost/Nixon has released another poster and, though it's got a bunch more flavor than the film's first version (shown below), I still can't help but like the first attempt more.
Oscar®-winning director Ron Howard brings to the screen writer Peter Morgan's electrifying battle between Richard Nixon, the disgraced president with a legacy to save, and David Frost, a jet-setting television personality with a name to make, in the untold story of the historic encounter that changed both: Frost/Nixon. Reprising their roles from Morgan's stageplay are Frank Langella, who won a Tony for his portrayal of Nixon, and Michael Sheen, who fully inhabited the part of Frost onstage in London and New York.
While the new poster for Frost/Nixon allows for some of the rest of the cast to be seen -- namedrop much? -- there is still no beating the image featured in the first version. Both posters are shown below for comparison. Thanks to Empire for the second version.
