In a dramatic public service announcement titled “Turn Off Your Phone,” filmmaker Oliver Stone delivers a chilling reminder to moviegoers to turn off their cell phones while in the movie theater.
“It allows certain parties to track your every move,” Stone says of today’s smartphones. “Every time you make a call, send a text, we are giving them access. The information you’re putting out into the world voluntarily is enough to burn your life to the ground.”
Stone’s latest film, “Snowden,” is about Edward Snowden, the former National Security Agency contractor turned whistle-blower. Starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Shailene Woodley, the movie opens in theaters on Sept. 16.
But the real-life Snowden once famously tweeted:
Break classification rules for the public's benefit, and you could be exiled.
Do it for personal benefit, and you could be President.
