First Images Of Joseph Gordon-Levitt As Nsa Whistleblower Edward Snowden

4 March 2015 12:43 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Open Road Films

Oliver Stone last week started production on his biopic of Edward Snowden, the sometime CIA systems admin who leaked information to the press and revealed just how much American intelligence agencies were spying on… well, on everyone really. The star of this film is Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and the production today released two images of him in the role.

Well, he looks enough like him that it doesn’t matter, and Gordon-Levitt is a fine actor so I have no worries about his ability to carry off the role.

Oliver Stone on the other hand… well, his films are rather scatter shot, to put it politely. I don’t know if he’s got the discipline and focus to nail a story like this and all of its relevance and resonances. He seems happier making cameras whizz around while neon lights flicker on and off and race horses breathe fire. »

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.

"The Fault in Our Stars" and "Divergent" star Ansel Elgort was on "The Tonight Show" Tuesday night, and he shared the story of a recent party he went to with his "ridiculous" mother, who has no idea who any celebrities are. They ran into Bruce Willis and his mom had no idea who he was, so she just said, "Hi, what's your name? What do you do?" When Bruce said he was an actor, Ansel's mom said, "Oh my son is an actor. How's that going for you?" In classic Bruce fashion, he just replied, "It's going pretty good." Haha. Good for Ansel's mom - it's about time someone »

Oliver Stone is currently hard at work on a biopic of American whistle blower Edward Snowden, entitled Snowden, and today we can reveal a first look at actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt who stars in the title role. Snowden famously leaked classified information from the Nsa (National Security Agency) in 2013, and is currently exiled in Russia.

With his work portraying Philippe Petit all but wrapped up, as Robert Zemeckis’ ambitious, biographical drama The Walk moves into post-production, star Joseph Gordon-Levitt has turned all of his attention to Oliver Stone’s upcoming biopic, Snowden. For the film, the actor is set to embody the controversial figure, and today Open Road Films has unveiled the first image of Gordon-Levitt on set looking ready for battle.

First Look: Joseph Gordon-Levitt As Edward Snowden In Oliver Stone's 'Snowden'

3 March 2015 7:16 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

One movie that didn't make our main slate of Premature 2016 Best Picture Oscar Contenders was Oliver Stone's "Snowden," but maybe we shouldn't count him out. After all, the filmmaker is a two-time Best Director Oscar winner, and he's got a third for writing the screenplay for "Midnight Express." That said, it's been two decades since he was nominated for anything, but that could change with his latest pic, and the currently-in-production drama has unveiled its first photos. Joseph Gordon-Levitt takes the title role of the whistleblower, with these images showing us the ordinary man who unquestioningly served his country before he made international headlines.

Gordon-Levitt stars as Edward Snowden and on his Facebook page he released the following note, which explains the pictures you're seeing here: I was surprised when I first learned this about Snowden--that he enlisted in the Us Army in 2004. He wanted to go fight in Iraq, but during basic training at Fort Benning, he broke both of his legs and received an administrative discharge. After that, he was still determined to serve his country (love him or hate him, you gotta admit »

DVD Review – Dying of the Light (2014)

2 March 2015 5:40 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Dying of the Light, 2014.

Written and Directed by Paul Schrader.

Starring Nicolas Cage, Anton Yelchin, Irene Jacob, Victor Webster and Alexander Karim.


Burned out CIA operative Evan Lake (Nicolas Cage) is forced into early retirement due to a degenerative medical diagnosis. Aided by an up and coming field agent Milton Schultz (Anton Yelchin) he uses his limited time to track down an old adversary.

Nicolas Cage. Nicolas Cage screaming. Nicolas Cage screaming Loudly. Again.

Given what has been made of the latest Cage-rage low budget effort in many quarters you could be forgiven for thinking this’ll be on a par with that The Wicker Man remake for overall- albeit hilarious- lameness.

In truth, it’s not quite as bad as all that. It’s just a bit weird really, with Schrader and the cast recently disowning the finished product and claiming something of a studio takeover from the creatives in control. »

All Bets Are Off: Top Ten Films About Las Vegas

1 March 2015 9:19 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Las Vegas…the hotbed haven where dreams of high rollers are realized among the glitzy bright lights, the element of chance and luck and the adrenaline for instant fortune. But there is a deception to Sin City that is overlooked–the isolation of a gambler’s anxiety and desperation, the false sense of confidence at the craps table and the swinging doors of the psychological lows more so than the rewarding highs.

Still, Las Vegas has its excitable aura–both innocence and guilt–where one arrives to skillfully manufacture their financial profile or go bust. In some instances, the hedonistic expectations are defined in other fun, precarious ways. It is no wonder that Hollywood has come calling to put its distinctive spin on the capital city of adult entertainment. For decades, the movies have made Las Vegas its backdrop for wonderment, degradation, intrigue, comical curiosity and soul-searching revelations.
