With a resumé that includes the likes of JFK, Platoon, World Trade Center and W., Oliver Stone knows how to bring recent history to the screen in a big way. He shows no signs of slowing down with the epic new trailer for Snowden, a biopic about the NSA whistleblower starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt in the lead role.
The trailer takes us through Snowden’s initial training with the NSA through his high-stakes decision to double cross the most powerful government in the world. Joseph Gordon-Levitt portrays Snowden with an eerie amount of skill, and the cast is rounded out by everyone from Shailene Woodley to Nicolas Cage.
Snowden hits theaters this fall, just in time for the beginning of Oscar season. Award bells may already be ringing for Gordon-Levitt and Stone, but we’re on board no matter what the critics have to say.
Today also saw the release of the trailer for DC’s upcoming R-rated Batman cartoon.
