As 2015 hits the halfway mark, it’s encouraging that so many upcoming films look promising — because so far, the Oscar possibilities are meager, to say the least.
Once again, fact-based dramas will dominate awards buzz. There are at least 14 with scheduled dates, and another three possibilities for this year. Six of these earn the highest possible praise: People from rival studios like them.
That roster includes “Black Mass,” starring Johnny Depp as Boston mob kingpin Whitey Bulger; “Concussion,” about the NFL’s efforts to deny the repercussions of players’ repeated concussions; “Spotlight,” with Mark Ruffalo, Michael Keaton and Rachel McAdams as the Boston Globe reporters who uncovered child abuse in the Catholic Church; “Trumbo,” about Dalton Trumbo and the House Un-American Activities Committee; “Truth,” the Dan Rather-George W. Bush scandal pic; and “The Walk,” about high-wire artist Philippe Petit, played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

Today we have a teaser trailer for Oliver Stone's upcoming "Snowden" film, starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Nsa whistleblower Edward Snowden. Check it out below. Plot: The story follows Snowden (Gordon-Levitt) as he moves from Hawaii to Hong Kong where he met documentary filmmaker Laura Poitras (director of the Oscar-winning Citizenfour) and journalist Glenn Greenwald to hand over top-secret Nsa documents, all before seeking asylum in Russia. "Snowden" co-stars Nicolas Cage, Shailene Woodley and Zachary Quinto. It's set to hit theaters on December 25th. Trailer: »
For a movie about a guy (in)famous for leaking classified information, "Snowden" is playing its own cards close to the vest. For now. Oliver Stone, who lives for this kind of story, directed the political bio thriller with Joseph Gordon-Levitt as former CIA employee Edward Snowden. The movie comes out on Christmas, which means it's a capital "B" Big Deal. Also a big deal: the rest of the A-list cast, which includes Shailene Woodley, Melissa Leo, Zachary Quinto, Tom Wilkinson, Rhys Ifans, Joely Richardson and even -- a bit randomly -- Nicolas Cage.
The first teaser trailer doesn't focus on the cast. It doesn't show them at all. It only lists their names at the end, after a series of facts are shown about the real Edward Snowden (who is also not shown at all). Here's what we see, amid close-up shots of an American flag, as pensive »

The latest movie from director Oliver Stone is the story of Nsa whistleblower, Edward Snowden. Due in Us cinemas in December, the movie stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Snowden, with the supporting cast including Shailene Woodley, Melissa Leo, Zachary Quinto, Tom Wilkinson, Nicolas Cage (yes!) and Rhys Ifans.
The film - which goes by the name of Snowden - is set to tell the story of how Snowden got hold of thousands of classified documents and then leaked them to the press, and the simple synopsis for the movie reads as follows:
Snowden stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt and is written and directed by acclaimed filmmaker Oliver Stone. The script is based on the books The Snowden Files: The Inside Story of the World’s Most Wanted Man by Luke Harding and »
Recounting the story of Nsa contractor Edward Snowden (Joseph Gordon Levitt) and how he obtained and shared with the world thousands of classified documents that informed the public of privacy breaches acted out by their own government, Oliver Stone’s Snowden comes our way later this year, and the first trailer has arrived. A teaser in every sense of the word, this gives nothing away about the story (or contain any footage for that matter), but you get the sense Stone is going down the controversial route here (the upside American flag is an official signal that the country is in danger). The director's output has been on decline as of late, but part of me is hoping Snowden sees a return to form for him. Released: 25th December (U.S.)/ ? (Irl/U.K.) »

Joseph Gordon-Levitt is Edward Snowden, the man who leaked thousands of classified Nsa documents to the press in 2013. This is the teaser trailer for Oliver Stone’s next film, Snowden. Well that was disappointing, I guess it’s my fault for expecting some actual footage from a teaser trailer. All we get are a few lines […]
Open Road Films has released the first trailer for their upcoming thriller Snowden, set to hit theaters on December 25. Written and directed by Academy Award-Winning Director Oliver Stone, Snowden features an all-star cast including Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Shailene Woodley, Melissa Leo, Zachary Quinto, Tom Wilkinson, Rhys Ifans and Nicolas Cage. You may notice that Oliver Stone uses the same image of an upside-down American flag from Natural Born Killers, with the trailer including the tagline "One nation, under surveillance, for liberty and justice for all."
The script is based on the books The Snowden Files: The Inside Story of the World's Most Wanted Man by Luke Harding and Time of the Octopus by Anatoly Kucherena. The latter book mainly deals with former information analyst Snowden's time in Russia hoping to get asylum while the United States was demanding his extradition to potentially face jail time for leaking classified information.

Snowden tells the story of a man who rose from Us Army recruit to a National Security Agency contractor within the span of just nine years.
The controversial subject matter in Snowden is nothing new for Stone, who has famously directed acclaimed movies on the Kennedy assassination and the Watergate scandal. »
The one-minute teaser offers a recap of the career of whistleblower Edward Snowden: “Army recruit at 21; joined CIA at 22; Nsa contractor at 25; By age 29, the most wanted man in the world.”
The trailer concludes with an upside-down U.S. flag bearing the motto, “One nation, under surveillance, for liberty and justice for all.”
Snowden was charged in 2013 by the U.S. Department of Justice with two counts of violating the Espionage Act and theft of government property, and his passport was revoked a week later by the U.S. Department of State. He was granted temporary asylum by Russia last year.

Before you see Oliver Stone's Snowden, you should probably get to know subject Edward Snowden a little bit. The first teaser for the film will give you the highlights of Snowden's life before he became "the most wanted man in the world" at age 29.

“One nation, under surveillance, for liberty and justice for all.” There’s no footage from the movie but the message is clear in the teaser trailer that just dropped for Snowden, the Edward Snowden movie that is co-written and directed by Oliver Stone. Joseph Gordon-Levitt stars in one of the 21st centuries most notorious criminals — notorious because the country is divided over whether his release of troves of classified Nsa documents was illegal or heroic.

The most wanted man in the world. Open Road has debuted a teaser trailer for Oliver Stone's Snowden movie, his retelling of the Edward Snowden story. Stone has been passionately and intensely working on this film for years ever since his Martin Luther King, Jr. project fell apart. As much as I'd love to say this is an exciting reveal, the teaser contains no footage - only some music and text and eventually an upside down American flag. Big deal. Aren't we all familiar with this already? Give us something, give us some footage, a single shot of Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Snowden would do. Oh well, we'll keep waiting for some footage. Here's the first teaser trailer for Oliver Stone's Snowden, in high def from Apple: Snowden is directed by Oliver Stone who co-wrote the script with Kieran Fitzgerald (The Homesman), based on both Luke Harding’s The »

Two years after Edward Snowden leaked those Nsa documents, he’s become a hot button topic all over again. Earlier this year he appeared in Laura Poitras’ documentary Citizenfour, and now a fictionalized version of him will get the spotlight in Oliver Stone‘s Snowden. Joseph Gordon-Levitt leads the cast as the famous whistleblower, who joined the army and […]
