The first Oppenheimer movie image from Christopher Nolan‘s forthcoming film has been out, and it features Cillian Murphy with a black and white monochrome setting. After delivering hit blockbusters such as The Dark Knight trilogy and Inception, Nolan has established himself as one of the world’s most popular directors. Following coming back to making the action-packed movie for Tenet, his next project leans more on Dunkirk in that it is based on the real story of the development of the atomic bomb.
In comparison to other forthcoming films, Nolan’s Oppenheimer film features one of the most attractive casts in Hollywood. Cillian Murphy plays J. Robert Oppenheimer, the inventor of the atomic bomb during World War II. This is the latest collaboration between Murphy and the filmmaker. Along with Emily Blunt, Matt Damon, Robert Downey Jr., Florence Pugh, Rami Malek, Dane DeHaan, and Alden Ehrenreich, Oppenheimer stars a slew of other actors. The combination of skill on-screen and behind the camera has reignited interest in Nolan’s new film ahead of its 2023 release date.
The first glance at Oppenheimer‘s photograph has already been unwrapped. As a way to mark the start of filming on Nolan’s new movie, Universal Pictures (via The Wrap) released a black-and-white still of Murphy in the role of J. Robert Oppenheimer. For the first time, IMAX cameras will be utilized to shoot in black and white, as seen by this photograph. Universal also characterizes Oppenheimer as 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.” Take a look at the following Oppenheimer photograph of Murphy:
The first look at Cillian Murphy in the part of J. Robert Oppenheimer provides audiences with a taste of how well-suited he may be for the role. Although the actor has a striking similarity to the real-life Oppenheimer, he appears to have slimmed down even further in order to convey the essence of the father of the atomic bomb. The cigarette that hangs from his mouth is also a distinctive feature of Oppenheimer’s style and personality. Known for being a chain smoker, he was eventually diagnosed with lung cancer later in life, which was a contributing factor to his death.
Apart from the outstanding Oppenheimer picture, the film’s black and white nature is a remarkable and unexpected surprise. Although the extent to which Oppenheimer will be shot in black and white is unknown, this will be the first time that parts of a film will be shot in IMAX black and white analogue photography. Given Nolan’s propensity for disturbing time on his films, it’s feasible that he’ll shoot previous passages in black and white while shooting the “current” setting of Oppenheimer’s narrative in color. At any rate, it ensures that Nolan’s next film, which will be directed by Hoyte van Hoytema, will include an entirely new visual approach.
