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 »

After Gareth Edwards successfully brought Godzilla back to screens, it’s time for King Kong to get his due. Ahead of a mash-up down the line in 2o2o — and a Godzilla sequel in between — Jordan Vogt-Roberts will deliver Kong: Skull Island. Capturing the “mythos of Kong’s homeland,” the star-studded adventure will arrive next spring, and Warner Bros. has delivered its first trailer.
“From the size of the skull, you can tell that things on this island are much bigger than audiences are used to with traditional Kong lore,” Vogt-Roberts tells EW, referencing the above image. “Our Kong is by far the biggest Kong that you’ve seen on screen, and that translates to a lot of different things on the island.” He adds that, “We’re very explicitly not telling the beauty and the beast story.”

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:

“I don’t want anyone else,” she tells him after they meet.
That’s before their apartment is bugged and Snowden faces the full wrath of the government. A saddened Woodley implores, “What is it about this job that makes it more important than your life?”

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 »
