Meet J. Robert Oppenheimer, who is considered the “Father of the atomic bomb”. The film not only focuses on the invention of the bomb, but also delves into the consequences that unfolded for the man who created the most destructive and deadliest weapon known to mankind. This scientific development reshaped the course of history. Oppenheimer’s story is both dream and nightmare. He knew that testing the atomic bomb could ignite the atmosphere and destroy the world, but he pressed the button anyway. His decision still reverberates to this day.
Oppenheimer is directed by Christopher Nolan and features an all-star cast including Cillian Murphy as J. Robert Oppenheimer, Emily Blunt, Matt Damon and Robert Downey, Jr. In addition, Nolan ensures that the film’s visuals and sound will blow you away. As a well-known proponent of the big screen experience and a critic of streaming, Nolan said at CinemaCon: “I don’t know of a more dramatic story with higher stakes”.
Don’t miss your chance to see this epic tale on the big screen.
“Smoky black-and-white and color with impeccable production design. A gaunt-looking, fedora-wearing Cillian Murphy is a dead ringer for Oppenheimer, and he has the haunted air of a man who unleashed an awesome weapon, a destroyer of worlds.”Variety.
“This one will demand the biggest screen possible; Director Christopher Nolan even used real-world physical effects to recreate the detonation of a whole-ass nuclear bomb. (And you thought Tom Cruise was crazy.)” CQ magazine.
