Joseph Gordon-Levitt is “the most wanted man in the world" in the first full-length trailer for Oliver Stone's political thriller "Snowden."
Based on Luke Harding’s “The Snowden Files” and Anatoly Kucherena’s“Times of the Octopus,” the biographical drama stars Gordon-Levitt as Edward Snowden, the former CIA employee and government contractor who in 2013 leaked classified information from the National Security Agency.
Opening Sept. 16, "Snowden" also stars Shailene Woodley, Melissa Leo, Zachary Quinto, Tom Wilkinson, Rhys Ifans, Nicolas Cage and Joely Richardson.
Academy Award-winning director Oliver Stone, who brought Platoon, Born on the Fourth of July, Wall Street and JFK to the big screen, tackles the most important and fascinating true story of the 21st century. Snowden, the politically-charged, pulse-pounding thriller starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Shailene Woodley, reveals the incredible untold personal story of Edward Snowden, the polarizing figure who exposed shocking illegal surveillance activities by the NSA and became one of the most wanted men in the world. He is considered a hero by some, and a traitor by others. No matter which you believe, the epic story of why he did it, who he left behind, and how he pulled it off makes for one of the most compelling films of the year.
