On April 26, 2023, in Las Vegas, Nevada, British director Christopher Nolan takes the stage to discuss his film “Oppenheimer” as part of a presentation by Universal Pictures and Focus Features at CinemaCon 2023, the National Association of Theatre Owners’ (NATO) annual meeting.
“Oppenheimer,” a movie slated for release in July this summer, has recently received its trailer from Universal Studios.
The movie chronicles the life of American physicist J. Robert Oppenheimer and how he contributed to the creation of the atomic weapon by splitting the atom.
The biographical novel “American Prometheus: The Triumph and Tragedy of J. Robert Oppenheimer,” according to Variety, served as the inspiration for the movie. Similar to Prometheus in Greek mythology, Oppenheimer’s life story and the work he did during the Manhattan Project altered the course of human history.
The movie, which is based on real events, depicts the tale of Oppenheimer during the Manhattan Project and the government research group that created nuclear weapons in the early 1940s to fight Nazi Germany in World War II.
The cast of the summer film features a number of well-known performers, including Emily Blunt as his wife and Cillian Murphy as Oppenheimer. Along with supporting parts as important figures in the Manhattan Project, such as Matt Damon, Leslie Groves Jr., and Tom Conti, who briefly plays Albert Einstein, the film also stars Robert Downey Jr.
Here’s the newly debuted trailer for “Oppenheimer” set to hit theatres in July 2023:
