The second trailer for Oliver Stone’s Edward Snowden biopic, Snowden starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt as the titular character debuted during the films San Diego Comic-Con panel.
This looks real good, that good in fact that Stone could have a hit on his hands, after a few misfires over the last decade or so (I did like Savages mind you). The topic of Edward Snowden is something that’s interesting, and is a story worth telling. Like seriously, why put yourself in this position? He’s got huge cojones I’ll give him that.
If your interested in this, I suggest you watch Laura Poitras’ 2014 documentary Citizenfour about Edward Snowden and the hacking scandal.
SNOWDEN stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt and is written and directed by Oliver Stone. The script is based on the books The Snowden Files: The Inside Story of the World’s Most Wanted Man by Luke Harding and Time of the Octopus by Anatoly Kucherena.
Snowden hits screens September 16, 2016.
