The first official trailer for Oliver Stone‘s Snowden is here, and it looks tense as heck. (And maybe a bit silly.)

The film stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Edward Snowden, the former National Security Agency contractor who leaked thousands of classified documents to the press in 2013. The film also features performances from Shailene Woodley as Snowden’s girlfriend, Lindsay Mills, and Zachary Quinto as journalist Glenn Greenwald. 

Plus, it gives us the gift of Nic Cage saying, “Find the terrorist in the internet haystack!” 

The movie hits theaters September 16th.
