Director Christopher Nolan presents us with a truly impressive Hollywood cast in Oppenheimer. Now there is the first teaser trailer of Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer with a countdown.
Christopher Nolan has been one of Hollywood’s most important directors ever since his The Dark Knight trilogy. His last film Tenet started in 2020 in the midst of the corona pandemic but was still successful at the box office worldwide. However, the film’s release policy has led to Nolan falling out with his longtime partner Warner Bros. and his latest film is now from Universal. Oppenheimer is about the invention of the atomic bomb and focuses in particular on the eponymous physicist, played by Peaky Blinders star Cillian Murphy. Universal Pictures has just released a first teaser trailer, which you can watch as a live video on YouTube. In case you’re wondering why, every time you start the video, a countdown will also begin showing the real-time time until the US theatrical release on July 21, 2023. In Germany, Oppenheimer will start in cinemas on July 20, 2023.
In addition to Murphy, the director has been able to gather a lot of other actors for his film. Among others, is Oscar winner Casey Affleck (Manchester By the Sea). His involvement in the project was revealed through set photos released by the Daily Mail. Affleck wears a military uniform in it, but who he plays in the Nolan work is not officially known at this time.
It was previously revealed that Hollywood legend Gary Oldman, who has worked as Commissioner Gordon with Nolan in his Batman films, will also be there. However, Oldman will only make a brief appearance, as he explained in an interview with British radio station TalkSport (via Deadline). The actor can only be seen for one scene in “Oppenheimer”. You have to be able to afford to only show an actor of this caliber for such a short time.
Marvel stars get involved in Oppenheimer
In contrast, the other stars of the historical drama are much more central to the film. There’s Emily Blunt (“Jungle Cruise”) as biologist and botanist Katherine Oppenheimer and Matt Damon (“The Martian”) as Lieutenant General Leslie Groves. On the other hand, Marvel stars Robert Downey Jr. (“Iron Man”) play as Lewis Strauss, and Florence Pugh (“Black Widow“) as Jean Tatlock. Also part of the already huge cast is Rami Malek (“Mr. Robot”), Josh Hartnett (“The Faculty”), Dane DeHaan (“A Cure for Wellness”), Alden Ehrenreich (“Solo: A Star Wars Story”), Jack Quaid (“The Boys”), Gustaf Skarsgård (“Vikings”), Alex Wolff (“Hereditary”) and Matthias Schweighöfer (“Army of the Dead”) as well as numerous other actors. The cast of “Oppenheimer” is definitely impressive.
Cillian Murphy Oppenheimer
As far as we know, the talented actor Cillian Murphy will be in Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer. We understand that Christopher Nolan likes his acting because you know, in the Batman trilogy, Cillian Murphy did a good job, and that is why it is quite normal for Christopher Nolan to use it in his Oppenheimer.
Will Cillian Murphy be in Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer?
The character of Oppenheimer, frequently referred to as the inventor of the atomic bomb, will be played by Cillian Murphy. In the first still from the next movie, Murphy commands the screen. The drama, which will be released in July 2023, features possibly the director’s most remarkable cast to date.
