A new biographical film about J. Robert Oppenheimer, the "father of the atomic bomb," is set to be released in 2023.
Christopher Nolan, known for practical effects and realism in his films, directed Oppenheimer.
He recreated the first nuclear weapon detonation, the 1945 Trinity Test, with real explosives and no CGI.
Oppenheimer features a star-studded cast and was shot in black and white, requiring a new type of IMAX film.
The film is expected to differentiate between past and present events using black and white.
Nolan has a history of using practical effects and black and white in his films.
Oppenheimer tells the story of Oppenheimer's role in the Manhattan Project and the development of the atomic bomb.
A fan-made featurette imagines Nolan dropping a real nuclear bomb for the film, but this is not true.
Oppenheimer is considered one of the most anticipated movies of 2023.
