‘Game-changing piece of marketing’: Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer live teaser countdown gets praise, Cillian Murphy first look as J. Robert Oppenheimer & more

Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer teaser trailer is playing on a loop on Universal Pictures’ social media platforms, a live countdown marketing tactic that’s earning praises though not as much as the acclaimed responses for Nolan’s auteurist filmmaking in the first look images of Cillian Murphy as the Father of the Atomic Bomb. A teasing glimpse of the nuclear explosion’s mushroom cloud was also shown, hyping fans with the infamous dialogue, “The world forever changes”

Oppenheimer is still a year away from its premiere but that’s not stopping the studio from hosting a live countdown video as a reminder for fans, with each passing day – its release inches closer. The brief clip shows a shot of J. Robert Oppenheimer’s famous porkpie hat. And another still shows the American theoretical physicist being photographed, apparently moments before his world-changing announcement.

Murphy’s eerie portrayal is already being predicted by many as an Oscar-worthy performance. Some are also hoping the 2023 biopic addresses Oppenheimer’s philosophical attributes, like his recital of the Hindu scripture, Bhagavad Gita “Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds”. Readers can check out reactions below.

 

After his successful 2020’s Tenet film under Warner Bros., Nolan drifted away from the studio and patterned with Universal for the first time for Oppenheimer. The decision to leave his long collaborator was triggered due to the earlier leadership’s decision in 2021 to release movies on HBO Max concurrently with its theatre release.

Oppenheimer also features a star-studded cast namely Robert Downey Jr., Rami Malek, Emily Blunt, Matt Damon, The Boys actor Jack Quaid, Black Widow star Florence Pugh, Kenneth Branagh, Michael Angarano, Alden Ehrenreich, Benny Safdie, Dylan Arnold and Michael Angarano.

Based on Martin J. Sherwin’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, America Prometheus: The Triumph and Tragedy of J. Robert Oppenheimer – the film is scheduled to release on July 21, 2023.
