In some ways, Joseph Gordon-Levitt is a higher-end version of James Franco but occasionally you have to wonder if we’ve allowed him to take himself a little too seriously. Take the latest trailer for Oliver Stone’s Snowden, for instance, which A.) Reminds you that this is a movie that is still coming out soon, and B.) Features one of the most baffling prestige-acting accents in recent memory.

Last year Open Road films pushed the release date of Oliver Stone’s Snowden back from Christmas, where it would have had to compete with Star Wars: The Force Awakens and a handful of Oscar contenders, to May 2016. That wasn’t exactly a vote of confidence for the film based on the life of famed NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden, and it would have forced Stone’s latest to contend with Captain America: Civil War. Snowden will no longer have to worry about Marvel, as the film has once again been pushed back, this time to early fall.

Snowden was originally given a winter release date, putting it right in the middle of awards season, but Open Road recently removed Oliver Stone’s Edward Snowden film from the release schedule, pushing it back to sometime in 2016. It was a move that confused some and seemed like a bad omen to others, but now we know exactly when to expect Stone’s latest — and you’ll have to wait a bit longer than you’d probably like.

There are a few things the Academy loves: biopics, movies about the film industry, period dramas, films inspired by harrowing true events, Meryl Streep in all of the above, etc. Oliver Stone’s Snowden ticks off a couple of those boxes with a biopic about famous NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden, himself the subject of last year’s incredible documentary Citizenfour. Originally slated to hit theaters this winter, Stone’s film has now been pushed back to 2016, ensuring its absence from next year’s Oscar ballots.

He was previously the subject of the Oscar-winning documentary Citizenfour, and now he’s the subject of Stone’s newest narrative film, which has revealed a new image featuring Joseph Gordon-Levitt in the role of Snowden.

There’s no better way to turn any family get-together into a screaming match than to bring up Edward Snowden, the CIA whistleblower who revealed the extent of NSA surveillance on American citizens and became an international fugitive. You know, one man’s patriot is another man’s traitor and so on and so forth. Well, director Oliver Stone is looking to ruin a whole bunch of Christmas dinners this year with Snowden, which stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt as the most polarizing figure in modern American history. Consider the release of two images of Gordon-Levitt as Snowden your cue to start prepping for your next family argument.

So, what’s next for Timothy Olyphant now that Justified is coming to an end? The actor appears to be making the leap back to the big screen, and is currently being eyed for a role in Oliver Stone’s untitled Edward Snowden film. Snowden is the subject of Laura Poitras’ acclaimed documentary Citizenfour, which is the frontrunner to take home the Best Documentary Feature Oscar at this Sunday’s Academy Awards. But Poitras’ documentary doesn’t appear to be the last we’ll hear on the subject.
