Snowden 2016
Edward Snowden. We all know who he is and unless you’ve been hiding under a rock for the last 3 years, you also know what he did.

Directed by the iconic Oliver Stone, "Snowden" appears to be an only slightly dramatized look into the events that led to 29-year-old Edward Snowden becoming utterly disillusioned with the country he once openly defended, and disclose all he knew to Greenwald, Poitras, and the public. It begins with his time attempting to become Army Special Forces, and after breaking both legs during a training accident, being discharged. From there he is hired by the CIA. He’s clearly the top of his class, acing every exam and test given to him, and being quickly propelled into foreign service in Geneva. It is there that his disillusionment begins...

Extras:

-- Deleted Scenes (8:51, 1080p) - five clips that are either stand-alone deleted scenes, alternate takes or extended scenes from the final cut. They can be played individually or as a compilation.

-- Finding the Truth (3:57, 1080p) - a very brief promotional featurette that is essentially an extended trailer. We hear excerpts from the EPK of Stone and Gordon-Levitt talk about what attracted them to the project and how they collaborated to bring Snowden's story to the screen.

-- Snowden: Q&A (41:00, 1080p) - Moderated by Rogerebert.com's Matt Zoller Seitz in New York, this panel discussion features director/co-writer Oliver Stone, stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Shailene Woodley, and the real Edward Snowden via video satellite from Moscow. This simulcast (aka Snowden Live) was broadcast by Fathom Events nationwide on September 14, 2016 in select theaters after a sneak preview of Snowden. Stone author Seitz covers a variety of topics along with his guests. Though smoothly edited by Universal's disc authors, this talk originally ran 185 minutes so the program has been heavily truncated.

-- Previews - trailers for The Girl on the Train, Jason Bourne, Bridget Jones's Baby, Kevin Hart: What Now?, Fifty Shades Darker, In a Valley of Violence, Don't Think Twice, Desierto, A Tale of Love and Darkness, Hitchcock/Truffaut, and Frank & Lola, which all load after the disc's insertion and can also be accessed as a montage through the main menu.
