It has been over two years since he revealed the secret spying programs and now we’re seeing the first trailer for the movie Hollywood has made to forever immortalize his story on film.

Those who have been looking forward to the movie will be glad that the full trailer is finally out today, we only got a brief teaser last year.

In case you’re unaware, Joseph Gordon-Levitt stars as Edward Snowden in this movie, which takes us through the life and career of Snowden starting with his military training and his stint at the National Security Agency, and when he walked out of there with top secret documents and leaked them to bring the truth to light.

This movie has a great cast as it features Nicolas Cage, Shailene Woodley and Zachary Quinto alongside Gordon-Levitt in the lead.
