“One nation, under surveillance, for liberty and justice for all.” There’s no footage from the movie but the message is clear in the teaser trailer that just dropped for Snowden, the Edward Snowden movie that is co-written and directed by Oliver Stone. Joseph Gordon-Levitt stars in one of the 21st centuries most notorious criminals — notorious because the country is divided over whether his release of troves of classified NSA documents was illegal or heroic. Shailene Woodley, Melissa Leo (as Oscar-winning Citizenfour director Laura Poitras), Zachary Quinto (as journalist Glenn Greenwald), Tom Wilkinson, Timothy Olyphant and Nicolas Cage co-star. Open Road Film is opening the pic on December 25.
