Nothing But the Truth, a fictional rendering of the Valerie Plame/ leak case featuring Kate Beckinsale as a younger, hotter Judy Miller, doesn’t open until December 17, but there are a few clips floating around in case you CIA just can’t wait.

Now we know how nuclear physicists must feel when they hear, like, Colin Farrell expounding on secular equilibrium.
