The director’s latest production is already talking about her almost a year before its release, and there is something to be impatient about.
On July 19, 2023, there will be two types of people in cinemas: those who will see the film Barbie by Greta Gerwig or the long awaited Oppenheimer by Christopher Nolan. Whether you choose between Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling as a plastic doll or Cillian Murphy as the inventor of the atomic bomb, this day promises some interesting cinematic experiences. In any case, Christopher Nolan’s film does not fail to advertise explosively.
The long-awaited feature film just released their first trailer (or rather teaser given the length of it) in an unexpected way. While the first spectators of Boop by Jordan Peele in the United States had the chance to discover the first images of Oppenheimer before their session, a special extract has been broadcast on a loop on the studio’s YouTube channel since yesterday. Why this particular format? The trailer features a real-time updated countdown to find out how far away we are from the movie’s release. A count which is reminiscent of that of the launch of a certain bomb… Here we have the right to masterful marketing.
The day everything changed
The teaser proudly states this at the end of a second countdown: “The world is forever changing”. Christopher Nolan’s new “clever blockbuster” will trace the history of the invention of the atomic bomb by scientist J. Robert Oppenheimer. A heavy story, full of importance and consequences that will most likely be enhanced by the expertise of the director. The short clip published on YouTube shows us Cillian Murphy looking serious in the role of the famous scientist. The actor of Peaky Blinders we have an extraordinary performance in store for this future success.
The project promises a five-star cast with big names such as Matt Damon, Emily Blunt, Robert Downey Jr., Florence Pugh and even Rami Malek among many others. The director chose shoot a film in black and white to plunge us into the heart of this tense time. The trailer hints that it will also play with hues of yellow and red to echo the colors of the atmosphere after the bomb hits. The date of the explosion is noted for July 19, 2023 in French cinemas.
