Nolan talks about “one of the most important moments of the 20th century”
“The Trinity Test and the revelation of the first atomic explosion in the world was one of the most important moments of the 20th century”, we hear the director say in this video (which you can find at the bottom of this article).
Oppenheimer is a historical thriller, shot in IMAX with cutting-edge technology, which shows the audience the compelling and paradoxical story of a new Prometheus, of the one who must “risk destroying the world in order to save it”. Based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning book American Prometheus: The Triumph and Tragedy of J. Robert Oppenheimer co-written by Kai Bird and Martin J. Sherwin, the film is produced by Emma Thomas, Charles Roven of Atlas Entertainment and Christopher Nolan.
Oppenheimer is shot on both IMAX 65mm and 65mm large format film including, for the first time ever, sections in black and white IMAX analog photography.
The film that is conquering everyone, even in Italy
Oppenheimer has Cillian Murphy as its great protagonist, who on the set plays the American physicist J. Robert Oppenheimer, the one who is considered the father of the atomic bomb.
He is joined by great Hollywood stars, including Emily Blunt in the role of his wife, the biologist and botanist Katherine “Kitty” Oppenheimer. Academy Award winner Matt Damon plays General Leslie Groves Jr., director of the Manhattan Project, while Robert Downey Jr. plays Lewis Strauss, founding commissioner of the US Atomic Energy Commission.
Academy Award nominee Florence Pugh plays psychiatrist Jean Tatlock, Benny Safdie plays theoretical physicist Edward Teller, Michael Angarano plays Robert Serber, and Josh Hartnett plays American nuclear scientist Ernest Lawrence.
Oppenheimer also stars Academy Award winner Rami Malek and the great – indeed immense – eight-time Oscar-nominated actor, writer and director Kenneth Branagh, with whom Nolan previously collaborated on Dunkirk.
The cast also includes Dane DeHaan, Dylan Arnold, David Krumholtz, Alden Ehrenreich and Matthew Modine.
A film that promises to be (and is already confirmed) as the greatest success of the British filmmaker
If already the various films signed by Nolan (among others, Tenet, Dunkirk, Interstellar, Inception and the trilogy of dark Knight) grossed over $5 billion at the worldwide box office (and was honored with 11 Academy Awards and 36 nominations, including two Best Picture nominations), this film is shaping up to be the British filmmaker’s biggest success yet.
Even the role of Cillian Murphy is one of life, considered by all as the most important interpretation that the Irish actor has done and will probably do in his entire career. After all, like the film itself Oppenheimer bluntly states, J. Robert Oppenheimer was the most important man who lived in the history of the Earth.
