Like many, I’ve been lucky enough to live within Christopher Nolan‘s filmmaking timeline, so from Following, through Memento, the Dark Knight trilogy, Interstellar and Dunkirk, the man has talent for the big story, and he’s always wanted to take those tales to the widest audience possible. Next up is Oppenheimer, and this is a huge one historically, socially and ethically – so I’m eager to see what he brings with the story of American scientist J. Robert Oppenheimer, and his role in the development of the atomic bomb.
Coming to cinemas from 21 July 2023, it’s based on American Prometheus, a biography of Oppenheimer by Kai Bird and Martin J. Sherwin and stars Cillian Murphy as the theoretical physicist, and delves into his role in the Manhattan Project, that developed out of World War II, and the move towards nuclear weapons. It’s probably safe to say we’ve never been the same again, and changes in awareness and worldliness switched dramatically.
As well as Murphy, the film also stars Robert Downey Jr., Emily Blunt, Florence Pugh, Matt Damon, Rami Malek, Benny Safdie, Jack Quaid, Dane DeHaan, Josh Hartnett, David Dastmalchian and many, many more. Here’s your first poster, and the previously released still – we think the trailer isn’t too far away and will upload the moment we have it!
