Oppenheimer Release Date: Plot, Cast, and Trailers!
Oppenheimer Release Date: Approaching three years since Tenet hit the big screen, Nolan’s next ambitious project is now on the horizon as the modern auteur sets his sights on a period piece tackling World War II’s nuclear Manhattan Project led by J. Robert Oppenheimer.
The highly anticipated movie is set to recount Oppenheimer’s journey in developing the most powerful tool of destruction the world had seen at the time, the atomic bomb. A pivotal weapon that shifted the tides of the second world war, but one that came with extreme casualty.
Although it’s still early days and we’ve only seen a taste of Nolan’s next epic, there’s lot to think about in the run-up to Oppenheimer’s 2023 premiere.
Oppenheimer Release Date
Oppenheimer is set to be released on Friday, July 21, 2023, at the time of writing. While this date was set well in advance, it’s always worth remembering that even the best-laid plans can be derailed.
There are no indicators of a delay as of yet, but as we all know, anything may change closer to debut. Rest assured that we will keep you informed of any changes to Oppenheimer’s anticipated publication date.
Little is known about the actual direction of this project, though we do know it’s partly based on the narrative found in J. Robert Oppenheimer’s 2005 biography, American Prometheus: The Triumph and Tragedy of J. Robert Oppenheimer.
This book covers a large portion of Oppenheimer’s life, not just the Manhattan Project period in the 1940s. So there’s a chance Nolan’s film goes beyond the pivotal moment, providing further insight into Oppenheimer and what led to his career as a theoretical physicist.
Based on early footage, it does appear the story will continue forward and cover the launch of the first atomic bomb itself, given a countdown timer signified the moment of impact in the initial trailer.
Oppenheimer Full Cast
Nolan is never one to shy away from an A-list heavy cast in his monumental projects and Oppenheimer is no different. Well over a dozen renowned actors are set to appear in some capacity as Cillian Murphy leads the story in Oppenheimer’s shoes.
