Award-winning director Oliver Stone's 'Snowden' is shaping up to be a big time box office player just in time for the 2016 election.
According to the video description by Open Road Films on YouTube, “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.”
As Collider points out, this kind of film, about a man like Edward Snowden, is tailor-made for Stone's style of directing and storytelling.
It may even receive some award nominations.
