J. Robert Oppenheimer, a prominent theoretical physicist and a pivotal player in the Manhattan Project’s development of the first nuclear weapons during World War II, is portrayed by Cillian Murphy. The narrative follows Oppenheimer’s journey as he struggles with the moral implications of scientific progress and, in ultimately, must face the ethical consequences of his participation in the project. The biography American Prometheus: The Triumph and Tragedy of J. Robert Oppenheimer, which won the Pulitzer Prize, served as the inspiration for the movie.

Did Oppenheimer movie use real atomic bomb?
While it may seem unlikely, Nolan did not actually drop a real nuclear bomb for his upcoming film. Nonetheless, for Oppenheimer, Nolan has recreated the first nuclear weapon detonation, known as the 1945 Trinity Test, using real explosives instead of relying on CGI. This remarkable accomplishment may well be Nolan’s most ambitious achievement to date and, combined with the impressive cast assembled for Oppenheimer, is a major reason why the forthcoming biopic is one of the most eagerly anticipated movies of 2023. It is also likely to provide a compelling reason for audiences to experience Oppenheimer on the big screen, rather than waiting for it to be available for home viewing.
Trailer for the movie has been release is considered to be one of the most anticipated movie of 2023
