This is how you do a trailer! Universal Pictures has released their latest look at Christopher Nolan’s highly anticipated next film, “Oppenheimer” and it looks amazing. Within its three minutes we’re teased with much of what has made Nolan such a revered filmmaker. And again check out the cast: Cillian Murphy, Emily Blunt, Robert Downey Jr., Matt Damon, Rami Malek, Florence Pugh, Matthew Modine, Benny Safdie, Kenneth Branagh, Gary Oldman, Florence Pugh, Josh Hartnett, Alden Ehrenreich, James D’Arcy, and more. Wow!
“Oppenheimer” is Nolan’s first swing at doing a biopic, but you can be assured that he won’t be beholden to any formula. He tells the story of American theoretical physicist J. Robert Oppenheimer (played by Murphy) who is often credited as the “father of the atomic bomb”. Nolan takes a deep dive into the Manhattan Project, showing how the key players, led by Oppenheimer, came together to create the first ever atomic bomb. It looks and sounds absolutely riveting and I can’t wait to see what Nolan has in store for us both narratively and visually.
“Oppenheimer” hits theaters July 21st. Check out the trailer below and let me know if you’ll be seeing it or taking a pass.
On my list! This looks awesome!
It looks amazing. Nolan is such a compelling filmmaker.

Yes. Goosebumps watching the trailer. What a cast!
I just re-watched it on the big TV on YouTube as I realized that I saw this trailer when I went to see Guardians 3 (don’t worry about those people on Letterboxd who hates your reviews. Just be glad you’re not Cole Smithey who got kicked out because he’s a cunt). This does look great but…. IT’S NOT BARBIE!!!!
It looks soooo good. I can’t wait for my Oppenheimer / Barbie double bill.
That is an odd double-bill but… I could for that.
For sure. Not much connecting tissue between the two. LOL
YESSSS I can’t wait.
Everything about this movie excites me. July can’t come soon enough.
