Oppenheimer Global Box Office Collection, and More.

Christopher Nolan directed the epic biographical thriller film ‘Oppenheimer’ which is adapted from Kai Bird and Martin J. Sherwin’s biography ‘American Prometheus’.

The plot focuses on the early studies of Oppenheimer and how he directed the Manhattan Project during WWII and his fall from grace owing to his security hearing in 1954.

When Has ‘Oppenheimer’ been Released?

Director Sam Mendes expressed interest in adapting Bird and Sherwin’s biography ‘American Prometheus’ following its publication in 2005.

But during the next fifteen years, the authors grew pessimistic about a film adaptation of their work which caused the project not to be materialized.

Finally, in September 2021, it was announced that Christopher Nolan would write and direct the biographical film with Cillian Murphy in negotiations as a lead cast member.

It is the sixth collaboration of Nolan and Murphy and the first one in which Murphy starred as a lead.

Primary filming began on February 28, 2022. The film Oppenheimer has its world premiere on July 11, 2023, at Le Grand Rex in Paris.
