The movie won’t hit theaters until September – but here’s a peek at Brad Pitt, in character, as a hapless gym employee who intercepts a CD with CIA secrets from the Coen Brothers’ Burn After Reading.

The film, which is set to open at the Venice Film Festival in August, revolves around a fired CIA agent (played by John Malkovich) whose memoir – containing government secrets – gets intercepted by his wife (Tilda Swinton) who wants to use it in her divorce proceedings. But, oops, the information winds up with Pitt and Francis McDormand’s characters.

George Clooney, pictured in bed with Swinton’s character, is the man tasked by the CIA with returning the damning disc – at all (comic) costs.
