The first extended look at Oliver Stone’s take on the NSA leaker has arrived.
The official trailer for Oliver Stone’s Snowden movie has debuted online.
Open Road released a teaser for the film last year, without any new footage, but this is the first extended look at Stone’s upcoming film, starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt as NSA leaker Edward Snowden.
The film is set to hit theaters on Sept. 16 after being pushed back twice from its original release dates of Dec. 25, 2015, and May 13 of this year. In addition to Gordon-Levitt, Snowden stars Shailene Woodley, Zachary Quinto, Nicolas Cage, Melissa Leo, Tom Wilkinson, Scott Eastwood, Timothy Olyphant, Rhys Ifans and Joely Richardson. Woodley plays Snowden’s girlfriend, while Quinto plays journalist Glenn Greenwald.
Stone directed the film and co-wrote the screenplay with Kieran Fitzgerald (The Homesman), basing it on two books, The Snowden Files: The Inside Story of the World’s Most Wanted Man, by journalist Luke Harding; and the novel Time of the Octopus, by Snowden’s Russian lawyer, Anatoly Kucherena.
