Snowden Teaser Trailer

The most wanted man in the world. Open Road has debuted a teaser trailer for Oliver Stone's Snowden movie, his retelling of the Edward Snowden story. Stone has been passionately and intensely working on this film for years ever since his Martin Luther King, Jr. project fell apart. As much as I'd love to say this is an exciting reveal, the teaser contains no footage - only some music and text and eventually an upside down American flag. Big deal. Aren't we all familiar with this already? Give us something, give us some footage, a single shot of Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Snowden would do. Oh well, we'll keep waiting for some footage.

Here's the first teaser trailer for Oliver Stone's Snowden, in high def from Apple:

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. Shailene Woodley, Nicolas Cage, Zachary Quinto and more star in the film Open Road Films releases on December 25th.

Why do we even need to see footage for this movie anyway? This is the perfect teaser and I would be happy if that's all they gave us. Am already sold on it.

Oliver Stone is not my bag, baby. I don't think he's done a good movie in... what... over two decades?

IF the movie makes him out to be a hero I will be disappointed. Fact is he broke the law and by the letter of that law he is a traitor. Now I think what he did was right, but I think the movie needs to paint the picture grey, if it does not, it fails.

Disagree. What he did was not only brave but morally right. No matter if illegal or not.

I take it then you do not subscribe to the Noble Lie concept, put forth by Plato. I think what he did was the right thing to do, my point is though, its a grey area, he broke the law, and is a traitor by that law.

You see, I think the Noble lie has a place. The populace just cant be made aware of all the doins of a large governing body. Like whatever spying we do on North Korea or who ever, we cant just have a website with all that shit up for people to look at. These actions are also part of the noble lie. And they are important. Using that trust to violate the people who empower the body is wrong, of course. Which is the subject here. As I have said I think what Snowden did was the right thing to do.

The one thing about us Americans, is that hardly anyone realizes we are one of the most propagandized societies on earth. Are we really that free? Most places in the west are free. They have the same democracy and freedoms we do. It's just that our oppression comes in a different form and it's a lot more subtle than other places. I was watching the news the other night and realized it was 99% all fear-mongering. There wasn't one positive story. Even the tiny coverage of news outside America was all grim. No wonder we all live in fear. And while we were all distracted with gay marriage, cop killings, and confederate flags, Obama went and signed the TPP agreement in secrecy and without Congress approval - which basically just sold American workers out to Corporations. Essentially, we are now their property. Our reaction? "Oh, Ben and Jennifer are getting divorced."

Gordon-Levitt has been a busy body as of late. This looks pretty good.
