First Full Trailer for 'Snowden' Movie Starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt
"There's something going inside the government that's really wrong and I can't ignore it…" Open Road Films has debuted the first full trailer for Oliver Stone's Snowden, the Hollywood movie about Edward Snowden starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Most may remember that we originally debuted a teaser trailer for this (with no footage only audio) last year but the film was delayed almost an entire year for release. Now we finally get a good glimpse at all the footage and the story that we will be following and it actually looks pretty good. Shailene Woodley co-stars as his girlfriend Lindsay, and the cast includes Nicolas Cage and Zachary Quinto. This looks way better than the awful hacker movie Blackhat, but not as impressive as Fincher's The Social Network, somewhere inbetween those two. I'm planning to see this. Take a look below.
Here's the new full-length trailer for Oliver Stone's Snowden, directly from Open Road's YouTube:
Snowden is directed by Oliver Stone who co-wrote the script with Kieran Fitzgerald (The Homesman), based on both Luke Harding’s The Snowden Files: The Inside Story of the World’s Most Wanted Man and Time of the Octopus, the novel from Snowden’s Russian lawyer Anatoly Kucherena. The story follows NSA whistleblower Snowden (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) as he moves from Hawaii to Hong Kong where he met documentary filmmaker Laura Poitras (director of the Oscar-winning Citizenfour) and journalist Glenn Greenwald to hand over top-secret NSA documents, all before seeking asylum in Russia. Scott Eastwood, Rhys Ifans, Timothy Olyphant and more star in the film. Open Road was originally planning to release the film last December, but delayed it until this year. Snowden now opens on September 16th, 2016 this fall.
