Oliver Stone’s “Snowden” Trailer Arrives, Film Likely Headed to Toronto Fest


Oliver Stone’s “Snowden” trailer is here, and it looks very, very good. The film launches on September 16th, which means a Toronto Film Festival premiere is likely. That’s where they will get the biggest bang. Also because it’s in Canada, maybe Eddie Snowden himself will show up! (Unlikely. Look what happened on “The Good Wife.”) Nicolas Cage is featured in his first decent movie in 20 years. Exciting.
