WATCH: Jospeh Gordon Levitt Takes on the NSA in ‘Snowden’ Trailer
Playing the titular character of Edward Snowden, the actor takes the National Security Agency (NSA) as he spills government secrets to a reporter (played by Tom Wilkinson). In the new trailer, which was released to coincide with director Oliver Stone’s appearance at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, Shailene Woodley also makes an appearance as Snowden’s girlfriend.
“Right now, Snowden is a larger than life story of what’s happening right now under our noses and it affects the majority of you, in our audience,” Stone tells the Comic-Con crowd.
“We went as far as we could,” he adds. “There are things that we don’t know.”
Snowden opens in theaters Sept. 16. For now, check out its teaser — above.
