>> Are you obsessed with Pokemon Go? Well, you might want to think twice about it. That's the message from director Oliver Stone who this week talks about his new upcoming film, Snowden, about NSA contractor and whistle blower, Edward Snowden, who exposed the US government's massive surveillance programs. Joseph Gordon-Levitt plays Snowden.

>> The panel we just had, someone asked Oliver Stone a question about Pokemon Go, and Oliver actually had a really pertinent thing to say. He's like that program is tracking you everywhere you go and that information, it's not just disappearing in the ether. That information is catalogued and then sold.

>> Snowden fled the United States in 2013 after the government charged him with espionage. He was granted asylum in Russia, where he still lives, and where Gordon-Levitt met him two years ago to prepare for the role. Snowden is scheduled for release in North America on September 16th.
