Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer Gets First Explosive, Morally Torn Trailer

Universal Pictures has released the first trailer for Oppenheimer, writer-director Christopher Nolan’s next movie. The film is slated for release on July 21, 2023.

Based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning book American Prometheus: The Triumph and Tragedy of J. Robert Oppenheimer by Kai Bird and Martin J. Sherwin, the film tells the story of the scientist who spearheaded the Manhattan Project.

Cillian Murphy stars as Oppenheimer in a cast that also includes Emily Blunt as his wife, biologist and botanist Kitty Oppenheimer. Matt Damon stars as General Leslie Groves Jr., director of the Manhattan Project, alongside Robert Downey Jr. as Lewis Strauss, a founding commissioner of the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission. Gary Oldman, Josh Peck, James Remar, Florence Pugh, Casey Affleck, Benny Safdie, Josh Hartnett, Rami Malek, and Kenneth Branagh further round out the cast.
