‘Snowden’ Official Trailer

A new trailer for Snowden was shown at Comic-Con on Thursday. Here it is:


INDIEWIRE – Oliver Stone is back in political firecracker mode to tell the true story of everyone’s favorite whisteblower Edward Snowden.

Oliver Stone hasn’t made a movie since 2012’s critical and box office disaster “Savages,” but you should never count out the Oscar-winning provocateur. This September, the filmmaker finally returns to the big screen in the same political firecracker mode that has given him some of his most blazing and timeless classics, from “Platoon” to “Nixon” and “JFK,” and this time around he’s gunning for the NSA with the true story of Edward Snowden.

Starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt as one of the world’s most controversial whisteblowers, “Snowden” tracks the eponymous hacker’s rise from failed Special Forces trainee (he was discharged after he broke both of his legs) to CIA hotshot and ultimate betrayer. The drama is based on Luke Harding’s “The Snowden Files” and Anatoly Kucherena’s “Time of the Octopus” and was filmed outside of the United States out of fear of governmental interference from the NSA.

The last time Snowden graced the big screen it was in Laura Poitras’ Oscar-winning documentary “Citzenfour.” Will Stone find similar luck with the Academy? Watch the trailer below (courtesy of IMBD) and find out. “Snowden,” co-starring Nicolas Cage and Shailene Woodley, opens September 16.

Final ‘Divergent’ Movie to Skip Theaters for TV Movie and Spinoff Series

Bad news about Ascendant. Shailene has yet to signup for the new made for television movie as her contract (and everyone else in the cast) was for a theatrical release. More news to come.

THE WRAP – Lionsgate is no longer planning to release the final “Divergent” film in theaters, TheWrap has learned.

The finale, “The Divergent Series: Ascendant,” will now come out as a television movie, an individual familiar with the situation said. A spinoff series also in the works.

The deal is in the early talks phase as the studio wants the young-adult book series adaptation to finish on the small screen.

The television movie finale would be followed by a standalone television series, to be produced by the studio’s television group.

Lionsgate has not yet taken the project out to networks, but presumably their new acquisition — Starz — would get first right of refusal.

The film, which is listed as in pre-production on IMDb, has not been shot yet and it’s not yet clear whether previously announced returning cast Shailene Woodley, Theo James, Ansel Elgort and more will stay on.

The theatrical release date had been set for June 9, 2017.

The dystopian young-adult genre has slipped significantly in box office heat in recent years. “The Divergent Series: Allegiant,” the third film in Lionsgate’s once-hot “Divergent” franchise, made only $66.2 million domestically. It opened to only $29 million, significantly less than its predecessors, both of which opened in the mid-$50 million range.

Other recent attempts to launch new YA franchises like “The Giver” and “The 5th Wave” have sputtered at the box office, and interest in existing series like “The Maze Runner” and “Divergent” seems to have tapered off.
