Christopher Nolan has gone nuclear. No, he is (still) annoyed Tenetits pandemic-era release (although it permanently ditched BFF Warner Bros., which he believes spoiled the film’s analogue release). his next movie, OppenheimerEmeritus J. followed the government to develop horrific weapons. The film is based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning book American Prometheus: Triumph and Tragedy J. Robert OppenheimerWritten by Kay Bird and the late Martin J.

Nolan partnered with Universal Pictures to finance and distribute the film, which he also wrote and directed, after abandoning Warner Bros. for the film. – with which the film was made The Dark Knight triple, Start, dunkirk, And the Tenet — during the recent release of the aforementioned movie. But that doesn’t mean he abandons the Nolan-y aesthetic. Like his previous flicks, it’s an event movie. Think fiery explosions, long shots of grounded landscapes, Cillian Murphy’s voiceover, and obsession with space-time mysteries, all captured on large-format Imax film by former collaborator Hoyte Van Hoytema. In addition to music Tenet‘s (And the Black PantherLudwig Göransson. Below, details of the amazing trailer, cast, plot, and release date for Oppenheimer.

A film about nuclear research and armaments should have a proper trailer. Universal Pictures released the first full look on Dec. 18, depicting Oppenheimer who, despite making the weapon incredibly destructive, seems a little anxious about publishing it. The first shot is the blaze of a nuclear bomb detonating, followed by a close-up of the trapped scientist’s eyes and pouring rain. “We imagine the future, and our fantasies terrify us,” he says in a voiceover as the researchers assemble the bomb. They will not be afraid of it until they understand it. And they won’t understand it until they use it.” He doesn’t know if we can be trusted with such a weapon. “But we have no choice,” he argues.

All-star cast. Cillian Murphy, longtime Nolan collaborator (The Dark Knight triple, StartAnd the Dunkirk) And the Poor disguise A star plays Oppenheimer. Plus, there’s Emily Blunt, who was famously (by me) Satan wears purdahand recently on her role Quiet place. She plays Oppenheimer’s wife, Katherine. The most uptight star at this year’s Venice Film Festival (Florence bio, duh)—remember when she strolled down the carpet in a matching purple ensemble clutching an Aperol spray during a freakin’ press tour? He appears in the film as Jean Tatlock, a psychiatrist and physician who has a complicated relationship with the titular character. Iron Man Robert Downey Jr. is Louis Strauss, a businessman and philanthropist who became a key figure in the development of the bomb.

Oscar-winning actor Matt Damon (Goodwill hunting) and Rami Malek (bohemian rhapsody) also stars, with former Manhattan Project director Leslie Groves. Uncut gemstonesBenny Safdie is Edward Teller, a Hungarian physicist. Shakespeare enthusiast Kenneth Branagh also appears, along with Josh Hartnett, Dean DeHaan, Jack Quaid, Matthew Modine, Alden Ehrenreich, David Krumholtz, and Michael Angarano.

not CGI. The film recreates the first ever nuclear weapon detonation without the use of computer graphics for filming purposes. Visual effects supervisor Andrew Jackson had to rack his brains over how to shoot the effects “in practice, from representing quantum dynamics and quantum physics to the Trinity test itself, to recreating Los Alamos, with my team, on a mesa in New Mexico in unusual weather, and a lot of it It was required for the film, in terms of the very harsh conditions there — there were huge practical challenges,” he said. Total movie. We still don’t know exactly how he made the look-alike bomb, but we soon will.

The movie hits theaters on July 21, 2023.
