Must Watch: First Full Trailer for Christopher Nolan's 'Oppenheimer'
"I don't know if we can be trusted with such a weapon." Whoa! Strap in! Universal has launched the first official trailer for Christopher Nolan's Oppenheimer, opening in theaters worldwide July 2023. There is also an entirely different special IMAX preview playing in IMAX theaters with Avatar: The Way of Water, which has a more intense vibe than this one. Oppenheimer tells the story of American scientist J. Robert Oppenheimer and his role in the development of the atomic bomb, working at the Los Alamos Laboratory on the Manhattan Project in the 1940s. The massive cast features Cillian Murphy as J. Robert Oppenheimer, with Emily Blunt as "Kitty" Oppenheimer, Matt Damon as Leslie Groves, Robert Downey Jr. as Lewis Strauss, Florence Pugh as Jean Tatlock, as well as Rami Malek, Benny Safdie, Josh Hartnett, Dane DeHaan, Jack Quaid, Matthew Modine, Alden Ehrenreich, Jason Clarke, David Krumholtz, Kenneth Branagh, David Dastmalchian, and many others. This looks excellent! It feels prophetic and grand, which is right what I was hoping for with Nolan telling this atomic story. What a magnificent trailer.
