Joseph Gordon-Levitt is the world’s most wanted man in teaser for Snowden – watch


Joseph Gordon-Levitt is the world’s most wanted man in a chilling teaser for Snowden.

A brand new promo for Oliver Stone’s dramatisation of NSA leaker Edward Snowden’s life carries the tagline: “One nation under surveillance, for liberty and justice for all.”

Snowden tells the story of a man who rose from US Army recruit to National Security Agency contractor within the span of just nine years. The defence contractor made himself an enemy of the US government when he leaked a mass of classified documents to reporters Glenn Greenwald and Laura Poitras in 2013.

Zachary Quinto and Melissa Leo portray the journalists at the centre of this controversy in Snowden, while Shailene Woodley plays the girlfriend who Edward left behind when he fled the US.

The controversial subject matter in Snowden is nothing new for Stone, who has famously directed acclaimed movies on both the Kennedy assassination and the Watergate scandal.

Snowden is set to be released on 25th December in the US. A UK release date has yet to be announced.

Watch the trailer below.
