Director Christopher Nolan shared a new footage from his forthcoming film Oppenheimer starring Cillian Murphy at the CinemaCon in Las Vegas.
Oppenheimer is a comprehensive look at the life of J. Robert Oppenheimer, an American theoretical physicist who was essential in the development of the atomic bomb.
Taking the stage to thunderous applause, Nolan, a supporter of the big screen, said of Oppenheimer, “I know of no more dramatic tale with higher stakes.”
Oppenheimer covers the top-secret creation of the atomic bomb in the United States, as well as espionage fears at the Los Alamos laboratory while Russia advances their atomic technology.
Oppenheimer, played by Cillian Murphy, has the air of a man tortured by his decisions.
“I don’t know if we can be trusted with such a weapon. But I know the Nazis can’t,” He can be heard saying in the footage.
“Like it or not, J. Robert Oppenheimer is the most important person who ever lived,” Nolan said while introducing the clip.
“He made the world we live in — for better or for worse. And his story has to be seen to be believed, and I am certainly hopeful audiences will come to your theaters to see it on the biggest screens possible.”
Oppenheimer is set to be release on July 21, 2023.
