Joe Gordon-Levitt becomes the world's most wanted man in the Snowden trailer

It's been nearly a year since the teaser trailer for Oliver Stone's SNOWDEN biopic hit, showing us absolutely nothing, but we finally have a legitimate trailer that gives us an idea of what to expect. For those uninitiated, this politically-charged thriller starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Shailene Woodley reveals the incredible untold personal story of Edward Snowden, the polarizing figure who exposed illegal surveillance activities by the NSA and became one of the most wanted men in the world.

Admittedly it took the whole trailer for me to warm up to JGL's voice, but in the end I think he did a decent job of slipping into the guise of Edward Snowden. While this film looks like it's lacking the edge of Stone's early work, I think it'll prove to be an enjoyable trip down the government paranoia rabbit hole. Whether or not it proves to be anything more, we'll have to find out in September!

SNOWDEN opens in theaters on September 16, 2016.

JGL's voice is fine, much easier to warm up to than his French accent in The Walk

Looks better than most of Stone's recent work. Nicholas Cage did feel incredibly out of place in this trailer, but I still like the guy.

He sounds like he's impersonating Pollux Troy from FACE OFF.

Looks great. Even though Nicholas Cage is a barometer for truly atrocious films, I'll take the chance anyhow.

Looks like a decent dramatization of events. And he's just about got Snowden's cadence down. Probably won't be anywhere as good as Citizenfour, but that's a very high bar.

More moronic leftist distortions of history from one of Hugo Chavez's Hollywood minions. By the way, whatever happened to Oliver Stone's planned rehabilitation of fellow leftists Hitler and Stalin? [link]

That's odd. I get your dislike of Stone but I would have figured a right winger like yourself would oppose the NSA's practices. Or am I wrong?

Leftist Hitler? What were you saying about moronic distortions of history again?

@ I Am The Perfect Gentleman My opinion of Stone is completely different and separate from my opinion of Snowden. Whatever truth there is to the Snowden story, as a leftist you can be sure that Stone will depict it 180 degrees from that.

@ schwarzgerat Oh, don't be obtuse. [link] Why do you think Stone was interested in rehabilitating him in the first place?

All of this and - just like in the book 1984 - there is no scream of public defiance, only acceptance.

I'd say his story was told in the documentary, right down to the phone call in the hotel room. But still looks good
