Universal Pictures has released the first official poster for Oppenheimer, Christopher Nolan’s next epic thriller drama starring Cillian Murphy as atomic bomb inventor J. Robert Oppenheimer. The poster features Murphy in the middle of huge and ominous clouds of smoke.
The film is set to make its debut in theaters on July 21, 2023, which will see the star-studded biopic going up against another highly-anticipated ensemble film in the form of Greta Gerwig’s live-action Barbie film.
“The IMAX-shot epic thriller thrusts audiences into the pulse-pounding paradox of the enigmatic man who must risk destroying the world in order to save it,” reads the logline from the outlet.
Check out the Oppenheimer poster below:
Oppenheimer stars Cillian Murphy (Peaky Blinders), Emily Blunt (Edge of Tomorrow), Robert Downey Jr. (Avengers: Endgame), Matt Damon (Good Will Hunting), Rami Malek (Bohemian Rhapsody), Florence Pugh (Midsommar), Josh Hartnett (Pearl Harbor), Benny Safdie (Good Time), Dane DeHaan (Chronicle), Jack Quaid (The Boys), Dylan Arnold (You Season 3), and more.
The film is written and directed by Christopher Nolan, 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.
Oppenheimer will be distributed theatrically worldwide by Universal Pictures. Nolan and Emma Thomas are producing through their Syncopy banner, along with Atlas Entertainment’s Charles Roven. The film is being shot on a combination IMAX 65mm and 65mm large-format film in multiple locations throughout the U.S. including New Mexico, California, and New Jersey.
