    The paradox of Oppenheimer's legacy

    Known widely as the Father of the Atomic Bomb, J Robert Oppenheimer's paradoxical journey from a theoretical physicist and professor to the man responsible for one of the world's most destructive weapons is a story worth telling.

Nolan's take, as described, is an "epic thriller that thrusts audiences into the pulse-pounding paradox of the enigmatic man who must risk destroying the world in order to save it."

    With a release scheduled for July 21, 2023, 'Oppenheimer' promises to be an unmissable cinematic experience. Based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning account, "American Prometheus: The Triumph and Tragedy of J. Robert Oppenheimer," fans eagerly await the depths to which Nolan and Murphy will take this character.
