Open Road Films released the first trailer for “Snowden” on Tuesday.
The film stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt as NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden, who infamously revealed widespread surveillance being perpetrated by the U.S. government.
In the ultimate teaser-trailer tease, JGL is nowhere to be seen. Instead, we get a rundown of Snowden’s career leading up to him becoming one of the most well-known names in the world.
Oliver Stone directed the film, as well as co-wrote the screenplay along with Kieran Fitzgerald. It is based on the books “The Snowden Files” by Luke Harding and “Time of the Octopus” by Anatoly Kucherena.
“Snowden” will open in theaters December 25.
