Already eagerly awaited by the public, the film Oppenheimer sign the return of Christopher Nolan behind the camera, three years after the success of tenet. For this, he seizes a crazy story, that of the inventor of the atomic bomb Robert Oppenheimerduring the Second World War (a time he knows quite well since he already approached it in 2017 for Dunkirk). A first teaser has been unveiled by Universal Pictures studios. In this video split between black and white sequences and fiery shots, we can see the silhouette of Cillian Murphy in the skin of the American physicist, in the middle of a crowded corridor of journalists. The tension is palpable. “The world changes” moreover announces a voice (that of Emily BluntWho’s playing Katherine Oppenheimer) in this oppressive atmosphere. While waiting to be able to discover the sequel on the big screen, here is everything we already know about the event film.
The story of the father of the atomic bomb
With this new feature film, Christopher Nolan intends to trace the life, not so well known, of Robert Oppenheimer. Adapted from his autobiography American Prometheus: The Triumph and Tragedy of J. Robert Oppenheimer written by Kai Bird and Martin J Sherwin and winner of the Pulitzer Prize in 2006, the film explores the political, moral, personal and family odysseys of the physicist. From his contributions to science to being recruited by the U.S. government to lead the Manhattan Project (the research project that produced the first atomic bomb) in 1942 to being prosecuted for communist sympathies during the United States witch hunt United, the key events in her life and career will be highlighted in turn, showing how much history can affect an individual, as much as it affects her. And because Robert Oppenheimer is one of those characters that are both complex and fascinating, we can already guess that the gaze of Christopher Nolan will lend itself perfectly to his story.
An impressive cast
As usual, the British-American director relies on a rather incredible international cast. We find Cillian Murphy headlining, actor with whom he has already worked on previous shoots (Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, Inception, Dunkirk, among others). If the Irish actor, known as Thomas Shelby in the series Peaky Blinders, has been at the forefront of the cultural and media scene since the broadcast of the last season last June, he intends to stay the course by appropriating this new role.
By his side, Emily Blunt will play the wife of the famous scientist. Matt Damon will play Leslie Richard Groveshead of the Manhattan Project. Florence Pugh will play the role of John Tatlockphysicist and mistress of Robert Oppenheimer. Robert Downey Jr. will be Lewis StraussAmerican politician who participated in the development of nuclear weapons in the United States. Rami Malek, Jack Quaid, Josh Harnett, Casey Affleck, Kenneth Branagh, James d’Arcy or even Gary Oldman will also be expected on screen.
The release date ofOppenheimer
The film Oppenheimer will be released in theaters on July 21, 2023. A highly anticipated date for moviegoers, especially since it will also host the phenomenon Barbie with Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling… One thing is certain, whether for the work of Christopher Nolan or that of Greta Gerwig (or maybe even for both), we are already crossing this day with a red cross on our agenda.
