Second Trailer for Oliver Stone's 'Snowden' with Joseph Gordon-Levitt
"What was it about this job that makes it more important than your life?" Open Road Films has debuted a new full-length trailer for Oliver Stone's political thriller Snowden, profiling the life of NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden, played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt. The trailer was also shown during the Comic-Con presentation in Hall H this week, where Oliver Stone also commented on Pokemon Go. Shailene Woodley co-stars as his girlfriend Lindsay, also featuring Nicolas Cage, Zachary Quinto, Timothy Olyphant, Melissa Leo as Citizenfour director Laura Poitras. I prefer the first trailer for this film, because this one really plays up the intensity and thrilling aspects of this film more than the story itself. I'm also not fond of the music they use in this, but I still really want to see it, just to check it out. Maybe it's actually a good film.
Here's the second official trailer for Oliver Stone's Snowden, straight 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.
