    Universal has released the first teaser of the film Christopher Nolan's “Oppenheimer” starring Cillian Murphy as theoretical physicist J. Robert Oppenheimer.

    The black-and-white footage of the video shows Murphy as Oppenheimer and his image interspersed with flashes of fire. “The world is changing, reforming. This is your moment,” Emily Blunt, playing Katherine Oppenheimer, the scientist's wife, is voiced off-screen.

    A countdown appears on the screen.

    “You have given them the power to destroy themselves,” a voice is heard. Someone else calls Oppenheimer “the most important person who ever lived.” Given Nolan's penchant for temporary themes, this countdown leads the viewer to believe that this is about a day when “the world will change forever.” By the way, the YouTube teaser link is a “live” video, because every time a person watches it, the countdown decreases in real time to the movie's release date.

    The film is based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning book American Prometheus: The Triumph and Tragedy of J. Robert Oppenheimer by Kai Byrd and the late Martin J. Sherwin. Nolan adapted the script and also produced the film. Robert Oppenheimer was widely known as the scientific director of the Manhattan Project, which developed the first nuclear weapons during World War II. Because of this, he is often referred to as the “father of the atomic bomb”

    According to the teaser, both Nolan and Murphy did extensive research to include every last detail about the real scientist.

    “I'm interested in the person and what the invention of the atomic bomb does to the person. The mechanics of this are not quite for me – I don't have the intellectual ability to understand them, but these characters are charming,” Killian said in an interview.

    In addition to Murphy and Blunt, the film will also feature Robert Downey Jr., Matt Damon as Leslie Groves, Florence Pugh as Jean Tatlock, Rami Malek, Benny Safdie, Josh Hartnett, Dane DeHaan, Jack Quaid, Matthew Modine, Alden Ehrenreich, David Kramholtz, Michael Angarano and Kenneth Branagh.

    The film was shot in black and white by cinematographer Hoyt van Hoytema, who previously collaborated with the director on such films as Interstellar, Dunkirk and Tenet. Hoytema's latest work is Jordan Peele's No, starring Keke Palmer and Daniel Kaluuya.

    It is noteworthy that this film marks the director's first job at Universal Studios, as Nolan has only collaborated with Warner Bros for the past 20 years studios. He produced the tape together with Emma Thomas and Charles Roven.

    The film is scheduled to premiere on July 21, 2023.
