Oliver Stone’s highly anticipated biopic on Edward Snowden has been pushed around like the whistleblower himself. What was supposed to hit theaters this past Christmas — because, c’mon, nothing says the holidays like a little NSA surveillance! — will now bow out September 16th.

Based on Luke Harding’s The Snowden Files and Anatoly Kucherena’s Time of the Octopus,Snowden stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt as the titular American computer wunderkind, who learns all about the NSA and … well, you know what happens. As the tagline suggests, “The only safe place is on the run.”
