A new trailer at Oliver Stone’s take on the story of Edward Snowden has been released, and it looks like an interesting look at the controversial real-life whistleblower. At recent screening of the film at Comic Con, Snowden himself—who is wanted by the United States and is currently living in Russia—appeared via video chat, and said that though at first, the idea of the movie made him uneasy, he likes the final film.

The film, starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt, hits theaters on Sept. 16. Discuss

They’ve launched an Indiegogo campaign, which has (obviously) already surpassed its fundraising goal of $52,000, so there’s a good chance you’ll start seeing business travelers proudly riding atop luggage in airports around the world when they ship in January. The bags cruise at 8 MPH and are already TSA and FAA approved.
Seriously, watch this video. The revolution has begun. Discuss
