Laura Poitras' Julian Assange Doc <i>Risk</i> Now Has a Release Date

Last week the chilling first trailer for Risk, Laura Poitras’ critical look at Julian Assange and Wikileaks, dropped and came with news that Showtime was picking up the film for distribution on its network.

Now, via IndieWire, we have an official theatrical release date for the documentary that the Academy Award-winning Poitras reworked after Assange, Wikileaks and the Kremlin together became public enemy number one during the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

The final version will now hit select cities on May 5 before eventually moving to Showtime later in the summer. As of now, Risk is set to screen in cities such as New York City, Los Angeles, Austin, San Francisco and Washington, D.C., and Poitras will participate in Q&As in various cities to support the doc.

The full slate of theaters for Risk can be found below, along with the trailer. Tickets for the film are available for purchase here.
