Universal Pictures has dropped off the official trailer for Christopher Nolan’s latest film, Oppenheimer.
The forthcoming film, which 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, chronicles the life of J. Robert Oppenheimer, the inventor of the atomic bomb. The namesake protagonist was a key player in the Manhattan Project, a government research entity that developed nuclear weapons in the 1940s.
Cillian Murphy, who has previously appeared in Nolan’s Inception, Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, The Dark Knight Rises and Dunkirk, stars as Oppenheimer. The cast also includes Robert Downey Jr., Matt Damon, Emily Blunt, Florence Pugh, Rami Malek, Benny Safdie, Josh Hartnett, Dane DeHaan, Jack Quaid, Matthew Modine, Michael Angarano, Kenneth Branagh, Alden Ehrenreich and David Krumholtz. Nolan is producing the film with Emma Thomas and Atlas Entertainment’s Charles Roven.
The movie, which began production in New Mexico earlier this year, is shot using a combination of IMAX 65mm and 65mm large-format film photography, along with sections in IMAX black-and-white analog film.
Oppenheimer premieres in theaters on July 21, 2023. Watch the trailer above.
