I’m (personally) guessing this is the last big trailer before release, based on previous Nolan approaches but also because I don’t believe we need to see anymore before it’s up there on biggest screen possible but if you want more, then head right here! There’s little doubt of the compelling nature of the story, and it’s an interesting time in history to delve into a subject matter that might well be emotionally and ethically insightful.
Written and directed by Christopher Nolan, Oppenheimer has been shot on IMAX (65mm and 65mm large-format film photography, plus for the first time ever, sections in IMAX black and white analogue photography) with the intention that it’ll thrust the audience into the pulse-pounding paradox of the enigmatic man who must risk destroying the world in order to save it… or, at least, that’s the state of mind he’s in.
Starring Cillian Murphy as J. Robert Oppenheimer and Emily Blunt as his wife, the biologist and botanist Katherine “Kitty” Oppenheimer, we’ll also get to see Matt Damon as 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.
Reactive, explosive, one to talk about and it’s not even out until the 21st July:
Oppenheimer also stars Florence Pugh as psychiatrist Jean Tatlock, Benny Safdie portrays theoretical physicist Edward Teller, Michael Angarano plays Robert Serber and Josh Hartnett offers us American nuclear scientist Ernest Lawrence, plus there’s co-starring roles for Rami Malek, Kenneth Branagh, Dane DeHaan, Dylan Arnold, David Krumholtz, Alden Ehrenreich and Matthew Modine.
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 Nolan himself.
