The First Teaser for Oliver Stone’s SNOWDEN has Arrived

Gordon-Levitt-Stone

‘One Nation, Under Surveillance, With Liberty and Justice for All.’ With a tagline like that, you have an idea of what sort of movie Oliver Stone’s NSA leaker drama Snowden is going to be, despite the fact that first teaser trailer doesn’t offer anything more than these words.

Based on Luke Harding’s ‘The Snowden Files’ and Anatoly Kucherena’s upcoming ‘Times of the Octopus,’ the film stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Edward Snowden, America’s greatest hero/traitor, depending on which side you sit. Snowden is a former National Security Agency subcontractor who made headlines in 2013 when he leaked top secret information about NSA surveillance activities.

Stone’s international thriller Snowden opens Christmas Day, diving into time before the major events, when he served the country, enlisting the United States Army Reserve and then working for the CIA. Shailene Woodley, Melissa Leo, Zachary Quinto, Tom Wilkinson, Timothy Olyphant, Rhys Ifans, Joely Richardson and Nicolas Cage co-star. Cage directed by Stone has to be something to look forward to. Also love how he cast him in a supporting role. Watch the teaser below.
