Well, it showed up on my most anticipated list for 2016, and the trailer is here for Oliver Stone’s Snowden. Not much is still given about how much the film will cover, be it the entire biography of the man of just the most publicized events of his time with the CIA, though the trailer suggests more to the latter.
I personally enjoyed what I saw in the trailer. I think that the Snowden story, even though it was highly important and often discussed, still has a lot of mystery for the average filmgoer. Oliver Stone definitely picked some very important material for the film and his star Joseph Gordon-Levitt completely disappears into the role. Here he showcases again his knack for developing accents and voices to suit his characters, and it works well in the trailer.
Snowden is the story of Edward Snowden, a man who discovered and leaked tons of classified information to the general public a few years back.
So what did you think of the trailer? Will you be seeing Snowden? And what’s your favorite Oliver Stone biographical film? Let me know!
Snowden leaks into theaters September 16.
