First Look at Christopher Nolan’s Upcoming Movie ‘Oppenheimer’

The film will be released in July 2023, starring Cillian Murphy, Robert Downey Jr., Matt Damon, Emily Blunt, and Florence Pugh.

The first official trailer for “Oppenheimer” is also being shown exclusively in cinemas. The brief trailer is accompanied by screenings of Jordan Peele’s “Nope,” which makes sense given that both films are distributed by Universal Pictures. “The world is changing, transforming.” At the outset of the teaser, Emily Blunt, who plays Oppenheimer’s wife Katherine, says, “This is your moment.” On the screen, a countdown appears: “11 months, 24 days, 15 hours, 29 minutes.”

According to the first poster, Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer is going to be a box office hit, once again. A massive ball of fire appears in the background of Nolan’s biopic of J. Robert Oppenheimer, while a figure of one of the fathers of the atomic bomb, played by Cillian Murphy, is foregrounded beneath the tag line: “The World Forever Changes.”

Kenneth Branagh, Michael Angarano, Robert Downey Jr., Matt Damon, Emily Blunt, Florence Pugh, Rami Malek, Benny Safdie, Josh Hartnett, Dane DeHaan, Jack Quaid, and Matthew Modine star in the Universal film. Murphy will play Oppenheimer, who worked on the A-bomb during WWII before having his devotion to the US called into doubt by hardline government authorities.

Murphy said earlier this year, “[I prepped by doing] an awful lot of reading. I’m interested in man and what [inventing the atomic bomb] does to the individual. The mechanics of it, that’s not really for me I don’t have the intellectual capability to understand them, but these contradictory characters are fascinating.” The film Oppenheimer is based on Kai Bird and the late Martin J.

Sherwin’s 2005 Pulitzer Prize-winning book American Prometheus: The Triumph and Tragedy of J. Robert Oppenheimer. Notably, “Oppenheimer” is Nolan’s first film for Universal Pictures. For almost a decade, the director was exclusively represented by Warner Bros. Nolan and collaborated with Warner Bros. on every film since 2002’s “Insomnia,” including his billion-dollar-grossing Batman trilogy. Nolan and Warner Bros. supposedly had a falling out over the shaky pandemic release of “Tenet.”

Hoyte van Hoytema, the director’s cinematographer for “Interstellar,” “Dunkirk,” and “Tenet,” will also work with Nolan on “Oppenheimer.” Hoytema is presently receiving praise for his work on Jordan Peele’s “Nope.” Jennifer Lame, the editor of “Tenet,” and composer Ludwig Göransson are both returning for Nolan’s next film.
