Universal Pictures has released the first teaser for Christopher Nolan's Oppenheimer. Revealing our first look at Cillian Murphy as "the man who moved the Earth," the movie promises to tell the story of J. Robert Oppenheimer, the father of the atomic bomb.
The black and white sneak peek boasts a countdown clock, as does a newly launched website that confirms Oppenheimer will be released exclusively in theaters on July 21, 2023.
The movie's cast also includes Emily Blunt, Matt Damon, Robert Downey Jr., Florence Pugh and Rami Malek, Kenneth Branagh, Dane DeHaan, Dylan Arnold, David Krumholtz, Alden Eherenreich, and Matthew Modine. Like Dunkirk, it's a historical retelling of a turning point in human history, but there's still the expected level of secrecy surrounding Nolan's next blockbuster.
Based on the 2005 Pulitzer Prize-winning book American Prometheus: The Triumph and Tragedy of J. Robert Oppenheimer, this movie looks set to be another visual masterpiece from Nolan. Even what we see here is enough to set your pulse racing, and we can't help but imagine how incredible the teaser will look on the big screen.
What's interesting about this online version, though, is that it's been released in a looping live stream on Twitter and YouTube, with the aforementioned website counting down the literal milliseconds to Oppenheimer's release. The Dark Knight director's movies always feel like an event, so this unique marketing campaign really doesn't surprise us.
