The reveal of a new Christopher Nolan movie has become somewhat of an event, and his next one will be Oppenheimer.

If the name isn’t familiar, J. Robert Oppenheimer was an American scientist who played a part in the development of the atomic bomb. If the name is familiar and you’re not particularly a history buff, you may have heard it in song, as Sting referenced him Russians.

Cillian Murphy is starring as the titular scientist, and the names don’t stop there. Emily Blunt, Kenneth Branagh, Matt Damon, Robert Downey Jr., Josh Hartnett, Rami Malek, Matthew Modine, Gary Oldman, Florence Pugh, Jack Quaid and Olivia Thirlby are also set to feature. That’s some cast!

Oppneheimer is currently scheduled to arrive in Australian cinemas on July 20, 2023.

Here’s a bit of a teaser – deduct one whole day from the countdown timer to allow for our Aussie release:
