19 hours ago | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Shailene Woodley also set to attend.

Zurich Film Festival (Sept 22-Oct 2) has landed one of the first screenings of Oliver Stone’s whistleblower drama Snowden and will host the film’s director as well as stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Shailene Woodley.

The gala screening - the first to be announced for this year’s festival - will take place on Sept 24, just weeks after its world premiere at Toronto (Snowden debuted to an invite-only screening at Comic-Con last week).

It marks the fourth visit to Zff for Stone, who was previously the subject of a tribute strand and most recently screened his film Savages as the festival’s opening night gala in 2012.

In Stone’s latest film, Gordon-Levitt stars as Edward J. Snowden, the former National Security Agency (Nsa) employee who blew the whistle on the Us’s mass global surveillance programmes. The cast also includes Woodley, Melissa Leo and [link »

Snowden “Turned Down By Every Major Studio” Due To Subject Matter, According To Oliver Stone

25 July 2016 8:50 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Rubbing shoulders with comic book heavyweights in the vein of Justice League, Wonder Woman and Doctor Strange, Oliver Stone’s Snowden biopic caught the eye of attendees on the opening night of San Diego Comic-Con with a thrilling new trailer.

Aligned for an awards-friendly release in September, the Joseph Gordon-Levitt vehicle proved to be something of a hot potato during the formative months of production, with Stone revealing at a Sdcc panel that his latest feature was “turned down by every major studio” before finding a home at Open Road Films.

Relayed by The Guardian, the filmmaker noted that casting light on the Nsa’s questionable history proved a contentious issue when pitching Snowden to Hollywood execs.

“Frankly, it was turned down by every major studio,” director Oliver Stone said. “It was definitely self-censorship. I don’t believe there was an enemy such as the Nsa lurking in the background »

'BoJack Horseman' creator breaks down the year's best episode of television

24 July 2016 4:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

BoJack Horseman, one of the very best shows on television, returned for a wonderful — and, somehow, darker than ever — third season on Friday, and Netflix ordered a fourth season later that day. I'll have an episode-by-episode breakdown later this week, but I'm first pleased to bring you this long conversation with BoJack creator Raphael Bob-Waksberg. (Note: We did this a week and a half ago, prior to the renewal announcement, so his last answer refers to the show's fate being up in the air, even as he talks about plans for what he wants to do next with it.) Originally, I had intended to only ask questions about the season's remarkable fourth installment — one of the best episodes of TV I've seen all year — a largely dialogue-free installment set underwater, where BoJack's attempt to promote Secretariat at a film festival on the ocean floor goes awry. But then I realized »

22 July 2016 4:30 PM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Are you ready for a live-action TV first?

Gabriel Luna will be bringing Ghost Rider to Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 4!

The Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. San Diego Comic Con panel on Friday concluded with a teaser video showing the Ghost Rider skull blazing in the foreground with the tag line, "Vengeance comes this fall."

Many of you may be familiar with Ghost Rider from the Nicolas Cage movies.

Ghost Rider is a supernatural entity that takes over a human host. 

When cursed, the host looks skeletal and their head appears to be in flames. That's hellfire, my friends.

The character who will be hosting the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Ghost Rider will be Robbie Reyes.

Ghost Rider also rides a motorcycle that appears to defy gravity and goes faster than all other vehicles. 

The entity seeks out souls and forces them to feel the pain equal to that they've inflicted on all others. »

Second Trailer for Oliver Stone's 'Snowden' with Joseph Gordon-Levitt

22 July 2016 7:50 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"What was it about this job that makes it more important than your life?" Open Road Films has debuted a new full-length trailer for Oliver Stone's political thriller Snowden, profiling the life of Nsa whistleblower Edward Snowden, played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt. The trailer was also shown during the Comic-Con presentation in Hall H this week, where Oliver Stone also commented on Pokemon Go. Shailene Woodley co-stars as his girlfriend Lindsay, also featuring Nicolas Cage, Zachary Quinto, Timothy Olyphant, Melissa Leo as Citizenfour director Laura Poitras. I prefer the first trailer for this film, because this one really plays up the intensity and thrilling aspects of this film more than the story itself. I'm also not fond of the music they use in this, but I still really want to see it, just to check it out. Maybe it's actually a good film. Here's the second official trailer for Oliver Stone's Snowden, »

Joseph Gordon-Levitt is Hunted in New Trailer For Oliver Stone’s ‘Snowden’

21 July 2016 3:23 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

History was made today as Oliver Stone had his first appearance at Comic-Con and, aside from waxing poetic about the dangers of Pokemon Go and how it could lead to totalitarianism, he brought with him a new trailer for his latest feature, Snowden. While we already have Laura Poitras‘ Oscar-winning Edward Snowden exposé Citizenfour, this one finds Joseph Gordon-Levitt playing the whistle-blower.

Diving into his time before the major events, when he served the country by enlisting in the United States Army Reserve and then working for the CIA, it marks Stone’s first time shooting digitally, rather fittingly. With a cast also including Shailene Woodley, Nicolas Cage, Melissa Leo, Zachary Quinto, Tom Wilkinson, Rhys Ifans, Joely Richardson, and Timothy Olyphant, check out the new trailer and poster below:
