Christopher Nolan, known for his acclaimed global blockbusters promises to give audiences an exhilarating experience once again with his latest epic “Oppenheimer” made and meant to be seen only in cinemas. Nolan’s latest film “Oppenheimer”, which he wrote is an IMAX®-shot epic thriller that thrusts audiences into the pulse-pounding paradox of the enigmatic man, J. Robert Oppenheimer, known as the father of the atomic bomb who must risk destroying the world in order to save it.

The film’s cast includes Cillian Murphy in the titular role along with Emily Blunt as his wife, biologist and botanist Katherine “Kitty” Oppenheimer. Oscar® winner Matt Damon portrays General Leslie Groves Jr., director of the Manhattan Project, and Robert Downey, Jr. plays Lewis Strauss, a founding commissioner of the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission. Academy Award® nominee Florence Pugh (Don’t Worry My Darling) plays psychiatrist Jean Tatlock. 

The supporting cast is strong with Benny Safdie plays theoretical physicist Edward Teller, Michael Angarano plays Robert Serber and Josh Hartnett plays pioneering American nuclear scientist Ernest Lawrence, Oscar® winner Rami Malek, Kenneth Branagh, Dane DeHaan, Dylan Arnold, David Krumholtz, Alden Ehrenreich, and Matthew Modine (The Dark Knight Rises).

The film is based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning book "American Prometheus: The Triumph and Tragedy of J. Robert Oppenheimer" by Kai Bird and the late Martin J. Sherwin. The film is produced by Emma Thomas, Atlas Entertainment’s Charles Roven and Christopher Nolan.

Oppenheimer is filmed in a combination of IMAX® 65mm and 65mm large-format film photography including, for the first time ever, sections in IMAX® black and white analogue photography.

In a recent interview with Variety, co-author and historian Kai Bird shared his thoughts when he finally saw the film “I am, at the moment, stunned and emotionally recovering from having seen it,” Bird said. “I think it is going to be a stunning artistic achievement, and I have hopes it will actually stimulate a national, even global conversation about the issues that Oppenheimer was desperate to speak out about — about how to live in the atomic age, how to live with the bomb and about McCarthyism — what it means to be a patriot, and what is the role for a scientist in a society drenched with technology and science, to speak out about public issues.”

From Universal Pictures International, Oppenheimer opens July 19, 2023 in cinemas nationwide.
