SNOWDEN Trailer: It's All Fun and Games Until Nicolas Cage Shows Up

But seriously, why wasn't I prepared with information that Nicolas Cage (perennially sloppy scene chomper) was in SNOWDEN? That really lowers the bar. This is actually Joseph Gordon-Levitt's movie. He's playing the infamous Edward Snowden in Oliver Stone's new thriller, which also stars (my boo) Timothy Olyphant, Melissa Leo, (the sleep-inducing) Shailene Woodley, Tom Wilkinson, and Zachary Quinto. Which means the film is going to be all kinds of erratic, but maybe with a few great performances.

The trailer (seen below) isn't really exciting to me, but I just have to trust Gordon-Levitt, Olyphant, Leo, Wilkinson and Quinto to really deliver. More in the synopsis:

Academy Award®-winning director Oliver Stone, who brought Platoon, Born on the Fourth of July, Wall Street and JFK to the big screen, tackles the most important and fascinating true story of the 21st century. Snowden, the politically-charged, pulse-pounding thriller starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Shailene Woodley, reveals the incredible untold personal story of Edward Snowden, the polarizing figure who exposed shocking illegal surveillance activities by the NSA and became one of the most wanted men in the world. He is considered a hero by some, and a traitor by others. No matter which you believe, the epic story of why he did it, who he left behind, and how he pulled it off makes for one of the most compelling films of the year.
