“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.”
There’s also a new poster:
Do you think Snowden will ever get caught and sent to prison for what he did? Or will he hide in Russia until he dies?
Besides Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Shailene Woodley, the cast also includes Melissa Leo, Zachary Quinto, Tom Wilkinson, Rhys Ifans, Nicolas Cage, Joely Richardson, Timothy Olyphant, Scott Eastwood, and Ben Schnetzer.
The film will be released in theaters on September 16, 2016.
