What we get in trailer ?
Snowden leaked the documents after quitting his job as a contractor for the National Security Agency and preemptively fleeing to Hong Kong. He subsequently fled to Russia, where he is currently living in an undisclosed location while seeking asylum in other countries.
The trailer, released Wednesday, starts off with Snowden's failed Special Forces application and shows him turning to intelligence work, where he discovers infuriating overreach on behalf of federal intelligence agencies. Prior to his admission to the Central Intelligence Agency, the movie's Snowden exhibits his extraordinary intelligence in what the A.V. Club called 'an obligatory “completing a four hour test in minutes” scene.'
Gordon-Levitt's character is introduced to his new mission by an official, played by Cage, who urges him to 'Find the terrorists... In the internet haystack.' But instead of terrorists, the movie's Snowden finds himself looking at authentic sex scenes secretly recorded in American bedrooms, alongside a young colleague who remarks with voyeuristic glee that the government is capable of spying on people across 'the whole kingdom.'
A few moments later, Gordon-Levitt's character appears struck by a terrifying insight as he is in bed with his girlfriend, portrayed by 'Divergent' star Shailene Woodley, and gazes into the prying eye of his own webcam. And so, the movie's protagonist does what any conscientious hero would do - he downloads incriminating data onto a micro memory card, hides it in a specially modified Rubik's cube, and uses the toy to escape with the information.
It is unclear how close to the truth this depiction is - 2013 reports claimed Snowden smuggled the information on ordinary thumb drives - but a Rubik's cube did play a role in the real-life Snowden saga.
