Watch the second trailer for Oliver Stone’s Snowden biopic

New, 7 comments

The second trailer for Oliver Stone's Edward Snowden biopic debuted at San Diego Comic-Con today. The trailer starts off with Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Snowden in a now infamous Hong Kong hotel room, where he delivered to journalists a trove of classified NSA documents.

In keeping with the first trailer — which includes a sex scene in which Snowden can't drop eye contact with his computer's web cam, which looks back at him menacingly — it's a little cheesy-looking. Case in point: it features Nicholas Cage.

The thriller will also star the Divergent series' Shailene Woodley as Snowden's girlfriend, Zachary Quinto and Tom Wilkinson as The Guardian's Glenn Greenwald and Ewen MacAskill, and Melissa Leo as Laura Poitras, the journalist who won an Academy Award for her 2014 Snowden documentary Citizenfour.

Snowden will hit theaters on September 16th.
