Snowden was originally given a winter release date, putting it right in the middle of awards season, but Open Road recently removed Oliver Stone’s Edward Snowden film from the release schedule, pushing it back to sometime in 2016. It was a move that confused some and seemed like a bad omen to others, but now we know exactly when to expect Stone’s latest — and you’ll have to wait a bit longer than you’d probably like.
The Divergent series has never reached the culture-saturating heights of the Hunger Games movies, but it’s done well for itself. Divergent and its awkwardly titled sequel, The Divergent Series: Insurgent, left fans satisfied and made their fare share of cash at the box office. The first trailer for The Divergent Series: Allegiant (ugh, that title) is preaching to the choir. No one put off by the first two films will be won over by this footage and no one who skipped the first two will be able to follow any of this, but this movie doesn’t need your approval. It just needs the approval of the faithful.
“One nation, under surveillance, with liberty and justice for all.” Damn, that’s a good tagline.
Oliver Stone’s latest project is Snowden, which tells the true story of Edward Snowden, the NSA contractor who ultimately blew the whistle on the government branch, leaking incriminating classified documents to the press which revealed the NSA’s eyebrow-raising surveillance operations. He was previously the subject of the Oscar-winning documentary Citizenfour, and now he’s the subject of Stone’s newest narrative film, which has revealed a new image featuring Joseph Gordon-Levitt in the role of Snowden.
The Divergent Series: Insurgent (which the real, actual title of this film) has been bombarding us with trailers for so long that it feels like the movie should have come out by now. But alas, the next chapter in this young adult dystopian romantic action series is still a month away and Summit has released the final Insurgent trailer. To their credit, this is easily the most effective preview they’ve cut so far, even if it seems like it’s in an alien language to the people who skipped Divergent.
Sure, we just got a new ‘Insurgent’ trailer during the Super Bowl, but who can ever truly get enough of Shailene Woodley kicking ass and fighting Kate Winslet’s sinister bureaucracy? A new ‘Insurgent’ trailer has arrived, giving us more of the Divergent revolution, more action, and more Octavia Spencer looking pretty dang wise and fierce.
Summit has released a new TV spot for ‘Insurgent,’ and due to its brief runtime, this thing really crams in as much action, money shots, and suspense as possible. Shailene Woodley’s Tris is back, still fighting the good fight in her dystopian future society along with pals Ansel Elgort, Theo James, and Miles Teller. We’ve also got a new gallery of photos from the film, featuring some glamour shots of characters both old and new.
‘Insurgent’ is getting a Super Bowl trailer, but if you're watching the Super Bowl this year, you might miss it. Wait, what? Looking to save a few bucks on commercial time (NBC was charging $4.5 million for a 30-second spot), Lionsgate/Summit will instead run this new ‘Insurgent’ trailer during the Super Bowl pre-game show. And, ok, that makes sense! Only problem is that the Super Bowl pre-game show is 6 hours long. So, to save you the Herculean effort of sitting through that entire production, we have the ‘Insurgent’ Super Bowl trailer for you right now!
The latest poster for ‘Insurgent’ continues the trend we’ve seen throughout the all of the film’s marketing: showcase Shailene Woodley and a lot of broken glass and the kids will come. Oh, yeah. And Theo James, too. But c’mon, who really cares about that guy when you have the star of ‘The Fault in Our Stars’ doing her best Chow Yun-Fat impression?
If you loved ‘Divergent’ and are already totally on board with the cinematic adaptations of Veronica Roth’s young adult science fiction novels, then the trailer for the awkwardly titled ‘The Divergent Series: Insurgent’ is probably going to prove exciting. If you’re unfamiliar with the franchise, prepare for 144 seconds that might as well be in a foreign language.
