The Official Snowden Trailer Is Here And It’s Unnervingly Sexy

The Official Snowden Trailer Is Here And It’s Unnervingly Sexy

Video: We saw the first teaser for Oliver Stone’s upcoming true-to-life spy thriller Snowden almost a year ago. But the first official trailer gives us a more complete look at what Stone has done to the true story of this decade’s most infamous whistleblower.

Snowden hits all the spy thriller notes with over-the-top surveillance imagery, an obligatory ominous phone call and a fair amount of hero worship. Despite looks at characters played by Nicolas Cage and Zachary Quinto, the real star of this trailer is Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s super strange Snowden impersonation. It kind of comes off sounding like a constipated Muppet. The only part that upstages the voice is the sex scene featuring Ed Snowden, his girlfriend and a webcam.

The film hits US theatres on 16 September 2016. The Australian release date has not yet been announced. If it’s anything like this trailer it should be a real barf-inducing rollercoaster of distorted history.
