The trailer for Christopher Nolan’s latest film, Oppenheimer, has been released by Universal Pictures.
“Oppenheimer” documents the life and ethically questionable achievements of physicist J. Robert Oppenheimer, credited with inventing the atomic bomb. Oppenheimer was a key player in the Manhattan Project, a government research effort focused on creating nuclear weapons that ran from 1942 to 1946, and he was director of the Los Alamos Laboratory, where the bombs were physically assembled.
Cillian Murphy plays Oppenheimer, marking her first lead in one of Nolan’s films. Murphy has played a central role in many of Nolan’s films, having previously starred in Inception, Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, The Dark Knight Rises and Dunkirk.
“I’ll always turn up for Chris, no matter the size of the role,” Murphy previously told The Guardian. “Chris calls me and I’ll be there.”
The A-list cast includes Florence Pugh as Jean Tatlock, Emily Blunt as Kitty Oppenheimer, Robert Downey Jr. as Lewis Strauss, Matt Damon as Leslie Groves Jr., Gary Oldman as Harry S. Truman, and Rami Malek and Kenneth Branagh, Benny Safdie, Dane DeHaan, Jack Quaid, Matthew Modine, Alden Ehrenreich, Josh Peck, Jason Clarke, David Dastmalchian, Alex Wolff, James D’Arcy and many more.
The film is based on the 2006 Pulitzer Prize-winning biographical novel American Prometheus: The Triumph and Tragedy of J. Robert Oppenheimer by Kai Bird and the late Martin J. Sherwin. Nolan will serve as director and producer on the project alongside producers Charles Roven and Emma Thomas. Oppenheimer is Nolan’s first film since 2000’s Memento not to be released by Warner Bros., having ended his relationship with the studio following the release of Tenet.
“Oppenheimer” will be released in cinemas on July 21, 2023. Check out the trailer below.
