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.

Impressive cast, should be worth a watch.

After seeing the Doc about him it just seems a bit too "hollywoody", know what I mean? I'm still gonna watch it though.

Pretty up for checking this. Quite creepy all the NSA spying stuff, not to mention against human rights.

Thanks, Alex. Let's hope Stone has come up with something intelligent and meaningful. It certainly is right up his alley. Hate that he shot it digital as I simply hate the look, but what's one to do? Film is nearly gone now. Such a pity.

Nicholas Cage in a movie thats not straight to VOD or the 5$ bin at Wal Mart? Wonder who's dick his manager sucked to land him this role

None. When he gets the right script he is good. Ever seen Lord of War? one of the best movies ever.

I don't think you understand what I'm saying. I never said the VOD or 5$ bin movies were bad. When was that movie also? 11 years ago.. When he was putting out movies in the theaters. The past few years he's been straight to VOD with one or two movies in the theaters.
