More about the film

Oppenheimer is a biopic based on American Prometheus: The Triumph and Tragedy of J. Robert Oppenheimer, a biography written by Kai Bird and Martin J. Sherwin.

J. Robert Oppenheimer is a theoretical physicist who is known as the “father of the atomic bomb.” He was the leader of the Manhattan Project, a government research effort organized to create nuclear weapons between 1942 and 1946. The Manhattan Project was behind the first nuclear weapons ever produced in the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. 

J. Robert Oppenheimer was also the director of the Los Alamos Laboratory, where the bombs were created.

As per the trailer, the film will document the physicist’s life and ethically questionable accolades, covering the origins of this project and the making of nuclear weapons.

Due to his visual and narrative style, Christopher Nolan has become one of the most acclaimed filmmakers of his generation. Nolan’s works have always stood out for his outstanding visuals. Interestingly Nolan avoids using CGI as much as possible. In Oppenheimer, the first nuclear weapon detonation was recreated without CGI effects.
