If you weren’t buried in the midst of panel discussions featuring the latest superhero tentpoles and other costumed antics last week, you might have gotten a chance to see Edward Snowden. While on the surface, the arrival of an international fugitive responsible for the single largest data leak in U.S. history might seem out of place. But Oliver Stone’s upcoming feature film “Snowden” actually fit in well, especially given that an evening screening was followed by the opportunity to hear Snowden speak for himself.
For Snowden doesn’t think “Snowden,” the film, is all that fictionalized. Just after viewing Stone’s depiction of his life story to date, IndieWire asked Snowden — who appeared via a remote video feed — what changes he was happiest about in the process of adapting these events for the screen. His response: not much had been changed. While admitting that certain characters had been consolidated and details streamlined, »

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 »

The latest trailer for Oliver Stone's Snowden debuted at Comic-Con and finds Nsa whistleblower Edward Snowden sacrificing love to expose classified secrets. Joseph Gordon-Levitt stars as the titular computer analyst, who famously leaked documents connected to the government's surveillance programs.
The gripping preview focuses on Snowden falling in love with girlfriend Lindsay Mills (Shailene Woodley) and sacrificing the life they build together in his quest for truth. "What is it about this job that makes it more important than your life?" Mills asks Snowden, who angrily tells her, "You »

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:

Soldier. Fugitive. Hacker. Traitor. Hero. Whistleblower. And, soon, cinematic showcase.
Appearing at the ongoing San Diego Comic-Con, director Oliver Stone rolled out the pulsing new trailer for Snowden, his button-pressing drama that chronicles the digital revolt staged by one Edward Snowden.
Twice delayed, it’s understood Open Road Films will conduct a private screening of the movie during the event, though today’s all-new sizzle reel is an exciting tease of what’s to come. Played to a haunting rendition of “When the Saints Go Marching In,” Stone’s real-life drama places a laser focus on Snowden’s time as a private contractor working under the Nsa, CIA and various other companies within the intelligence industry.
Getting to this stage hasn’t been smooth sailing, of course; for the longest time, Oliver Stone was adamant that he wouldn’t helm such a contentious feature. This, coupled with the fact that »

Two new releases hit theaters this weekend, both vying for the box office crown over the Memorial Day holiday. 20th Century Fox's X-Men: Apocalypse and Disney's Alice Through the Looking Glass both squared off in hopes of taking the holiday weekend box office crown, but it was X-Men: Apocalypse that came away as the winner, taking in $65 million. Unfortunately, this opening weekend is the lowest in this new prequel trilogy.
Box Office Mojo reports that X-Men: Apocalypse's opening is the lowest debut since 2011's X-Men: First Class, which debuted with $55.1 million back in 2011. This debut also comes in far lower than 2014's X-Men: Days of Future Past, which took in $90.8 million, and significantly lower than the studio's X-Men spinoff Deadpool, which took in $132.4 million, en route to becoming the franchise's top-grossing movie with $362.7 million domestic and $763.1 million worldwide.
Directed by James Bobin.
Starring Mia Wasikowska, Johnny Depp, Anne Hathaway, Helena Bonham Carter, Alan Rickman, Stephen Fry, Michael Sheen, Timothy Spall, Rhys Ifans, Matt Lucas, Richard Armitage, Andrew Scott, Lindsay Duncan, and Sacha Baron Cohen.
Alice returns to the whimsical world of Wonderland and travels back in time to save the Mad Hatter.
In an age where Hollywood cannot go more than two years tops without cashing in on a sequel to a smashing box office success, it is absolutely flabbergasting from a business perspective that Alice Through the Looking Glass is just now being released a little over six years after Tim Burton rebooted the iconic characters and story with Alice in Wonderland. That movie made over $1 billion too, begging the question, why was there no immediate follow-up?
Well, after having watched Alice Through the Looking Glass, it seems safe to assume »

Alice Through the Looking Glass brings back Mia Wasikowska's Alice, Johnny Depp's Mad Hatter and the rest of Wonderland in the sequel to the 2010 Tim Burton film. The sequel, which also stars Anne Hathaway, Matt Lucas, Rhys Ifans, Helena Bonham Carter, Sacha Baron Cohen and Alan Rickman, opens May 27 with director James Bobin taking up Burton's mantle. As of Friday, Alice Through the Looking Glass had a low score of 34 on Metacritic and 29 percent on Rotten Tomatoes, leaving critics unimpressed with the screen adaptation of Lewis Carroll's work (one reviewer put it bluntly: "All frosting, no
