Perennially controversy-courting director Oliver Stone’s Snowden is finally ready to be seen, after it saw its release date delayed last fall and again this spring.
Starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt as the bane of the NSA, whistleblower Edward Snowden, the analyst who three years ago leaked the infamous documents that made it clear America was/is – question mark! – spying on its citizens, the film is due out on Sept. 16, and here is your first trailer.
Please, tell me this isn’t the first you’re hearing about this....
Anyway. Snowden co-stars Shailene Woodley as the whistleblower’s girlfriend, Nicolas Cage, Rhys Ifans, Tom Wilkinson, Melissa Leo (as Laura Poitras, the director of Citizenfour, the Oscar-winning documentary about Snowden), Timothy Olyphant, and Zachary Quinto.
Will this be the movie the government will not want ya seeing?
But that won’t stop ya, right. Right?
