The next after Christopher Nolan’s Tenet (2020) is literally an explosive look at the making of the atomic bomb. Cillian Murphy plays J Robert Oppenheimer, the man tasked with making the mission a reality. The second trailer shows audiences a closer look at the film’s other key players, including actors Emily Blunt who plays his wife Katherine ‘Kitty’ Oppenheimer, Matt Damon as General Leslie Groves Jr, and Robert Downey, Jr in the role of Lewis Strauss of the US Atomic Energy Commission. .

Written and directed by Christopher, the tense trailer shows the immense pressure Cillian’s nuclear physicist is under, to ensure the United States is the first to make the bomb, ahead of foes like Germany. There are many instances where he and Matt’s General are at odds with each other as the latter is the director of the Manhattan Project and wants the bottom line.
He asks to work on the project in a remote town away from prying eyes and wants to include all the families of the scientists there, so that they are not alone and missing at home. The line shown in the trailer, “You are the man who gave them the power to destroy themselves and the world is unprepared”, is already chilling when you think about the impact of this event afterwards.
On YouTube, fans wrote that they were looking forward to the film’s release. One fan wrote: “This movie looks absolutely unreal. Cillian Murphy is so talented and captures Oppenheimer’s unease with the Manhattan Project so perfectly. Can’t wait to see this in IMAX. This could very easily be my favorite movie this year.” Another added, “A Christopher Nolan movie is meant to be seen on the big screen. I can’t wait because it has a cast of talented actors.”
Other cast members are featured in this trailer, including Florence Pugh as psychiatrist Jean Tatlock, filmmaker Benny Safdie as theoretical physicist Edward Teller, Michael Angarano as Robert Serber, and Josh Hartnett as American nuclear scientist Ernest Lawrence. Rami Malek, actor-filmmaker Kenneth Branagh, Dane DeHaan, Alden Ehrenreich and Matthew Modine are other cast members of the set.
Oppenheimer is based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning book American Prometheus: The Triumph and Tragedy of J Robert Oppenheimer by Kai Bird and the late Martin J Sherwin. The film will be released in theaters around the world on July 21, 2023, the same day as Greta Gerwig’s Barbie.
