The first official trailer for Oliver Stone’s Edward Snowden biopic has arrived, six months ahead of its Christmas release date.

The one-minute teaser is certainly that. Featuring no footage from the film, it offers a summary of whistleblower Edward Snowden’s career: “Army recruit at 21; joined CIA at 22; NSA contractor at 25; by age 29, the most wanted man in the world.”

Joseph Gordon-Levitt stars in the title role, alongside Shailene Woodley, Melissa Leo, Zachary Quinto, Tom Wilkinson and Timothy Olyphant.
