“One nation, under surveillance, for liberty and justice for all.” Open Road Films releases the first teaser trailer and images from upcoming thriller, Snowden.
Earlier today, Open Road Films released the first teaser from their upcoming thriller, Snowden. Written and directed by Academy Award-winning director Oliver Stone, Snowden features an all-star cast including Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Shailene Woodley, Melissa Leo, Zachary Quinto, Tom Wilkinson, Rhys Ifans, and Nicolas Cage.
The script is based on the books The Snowden Files: The Inside Story of the World’s Most Wanted Man by Luke Harding and Time of the Octopus by Anatoly Kucherena. Check out the trailer below, which details the history of Edward Snowden’s U.S. service, from an Army recruit at 20 years old, to his work at the NSA, which would eventually make him the most wanted man in the world:

Take a look at these two images from Snowden which feature Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Edward Snowden during his military service and then later in Washington D.C. with his girlfriend Lindsay Mills (played by Shailene Woodley):
