The subject of Christopher Nolan’s upcoming film is the developer of the atomic bomb.
Christopher Nolan is not one to be humble. The director’s next movie, Oppenheimer, doesn’t look like it will be any different. He has put together a huge, star-studded cast to tell the story of one of the most innovative people of the 20th century and the revolutionary, but terrible, work he did.
Every time Nolan releases a new film, it is a big deal. Oppenheimer has already made a name for itself as one of the tentpole films of 2023 because of the cast and a scheduled summer release date.
Here is everything that is currently known about Oppenheimer.
Oppenheimer Release Date
On July 21, 2023, Oppenheimer will be released in theatres (exclusively). The Oppenheimer Twitter account tweeted the first poster for the film to mark the beginning of the movie’s one-year countdown:

The summer blockbuster season of 2023 will feature a variety of thrilling films, including Oppenheimer. Fast X, Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse Part 1, The Flash, Indiana Jones 5, Mission: Impossible — Dead Reckoning Part 1, Barbie, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, and The Marvels are now among the other submissions.
Oppenheimer Movie Cast
Murphy, Blunt, and Downey Jr. are joined by Matt Damon as Leslie Groves, Florence Pugh played Jean Tatlock, Rami Malek, Benny Safdie, Josh Hartnett, Dane DeHaan, Jack Quaid, Matthew Modine, Alden Ehrenreich, David Krumholtz, Michael Angarano, and Kenneth Branagh in the impressive cast that Nolan has assembled.
Cinematographer Hoyte van Hoytema, who has worked with the director on films including Interstellar, Dunkirk, and Tenet, captured the stunning black and white aesthetics. Jordan Peele’s Nope, starring Keke Palmer and Daniel Kaluuya, is Hoytema’s most recent film.
In Nolan’s film, Tenet editor Jennifer Lame and composer Ludwig Göransson are both returning partners. The film is notable since it is the director’s first production at Universal Studios after working exclusively with Warner Bros. Studios for the previous 20 years. Along with Charles Roven and Emma Thomas, he is producing.
Oppenheimer Movie Plot
Oppenheimer appears to be another Nolan classic at first view. For a protagonist who is about to change the world forever, time is running out.
The voiceover of Robert Downey Jr., who portrays the industrialist Lewis Strauss, defines the subject of the film and refers to Oppenheimer as “The man who moved the planet.” You’ll see that the Oppenheimer YouTube link is a live video because while you watch it, the countdown to the movie’s release date is actually getting less.
The Pulitzer Prize-winning book American Prometheus: The Triumph and Tragedy of J. Robert Oppenheimer, written by Kai Bird and the late Martin J. Sherwin, served as the inspiration for the film. In addition to producing the film, Nolan also modified the screenplay.
We can see from the teaser that Nolan and Murphy both did a lot of research to include even the tiniest facts about the genuine scientist. Prior to speaking with Variety, Murphy admitted, “[I prepared by doing] an awful lot of reading.” Adding to that, “I’m curious about the man and what creating the atomic bomb has done to him.
Although I lack the intellectual capacity to understand the mechanics of it, I find these contradicting qualities to be fascinating.” The new image of Murphy as Oppenheimer in Nolan’s strongly stylized black-and-white vintage style was released by Universal at the same time as the teaser trailer.
