Description: Though it may have slipped from its coveted Christmas 2015 release window, Oliver Stone’s button-pushing historical drama Snowden is still very much turning heads and raising eyebrows for its incendiary subject matter. Placing Joseph Gordon-Levitt in the title role as Edward Snowden, he’ll play the former NSA contractor who published a string of classified information from the company relating to invasive and unconstitutional global surveillance, the controversial PRISM program and much more. What followed was a global outcry, forcing the whistleblower from the States and into Russia. Alongside Gordon-Levitt are Shailene Woodley, Melissa Leo and Nicolas Cage. Stone’s picture opens on May 13, 2016.

Release Date: September 16th, 2016
