‘Oppenheimer’ Teaser: First look at Christopher Nolan’s next film

The countdown to Christopher NolanThe next movie is in progress. Like really extremely literal.

Nolan’s new film is Oppenheimer, a biopic of the famous scientist who helped build the first atomic bomb. The first “announcement” teaser for the film hit theaters last weekend, and now it’s online. Now that it’s a digital trailer, it includes a countdown clock Oppenheimerwill be released next summer. On the trailer’s YouTube page, the trailer plays on a loop with a constantly updating countdown. Take a look:

It also leads to a official website for the film, which also includes the teaser and countdown clock.

Oppenheimer‘s cast is incredibly stacked. You have the five names on the poster; Cillian Murphy is Oppenheimer, Emily Blunt plays his wife Kitty, Matt Damon is Leslie Groves, the man who oversaw the Manhattan Project, Robert Downey Jr. plays Lewis Strauss, the first commissioner of the Atomic Energy Commission, and Florence Pugh is Jean Tatlock, a woman who had an affair with Oppenheimer prior to the Manhattan Project. But the film also stars Rami Malek, Kenneth Branagh, Jason Clarke, Josh Hartnett, Matthew Modine, Dane DeHaan, Michael Angarano, Gary Oldman, Tony Goldwyn, Olivia Thurlby and many more.

This will be Nolan’s first film since the release of Tenet in the fall of 2020, making it notable as the first new release in multiplexes following the extended industry-wide shutdown at the start of the Covid pandemic. Tenet ultimately earned $363 million worldwide, but Nolan later upset his distributor, Warner Bros., when they decided to release their entire 2021 slate of theatrical releases on HBO Max on the same day they opened in theaters. He later publicly said “Some of our industry’s biggest filmmakers and most important movie stars went to bed the night before thinking they were working for the best movie studio.” Nolan had previously worked with Warner Bros. for nearly 20 years, but soon took Oppenheimer to Universal.

Oppenheimer opens in theaters on July 21, 2023.
