Oppenheimer: Christopher Nolan’s film on nuclear explosion grabs headlines with explosive poster

Image source: INSTAGRAM/OPPENHEIMER MOVIE New poster for Oppenheimer is launched

Ever since Christopher Nolan said he didn’t use CGI to recreate the first nuclear weapon detonation scene in his upcoming film Oppenheimer, movie fans have been wondering how he was able to achieve its look and feel. It will be revealed only after the release of the film next year, but till then the makers have launched a new poster of the film, in which the nuclear blast scene has been shown through the eyes of a character.

New Oppenheimer Poster

Oppenheimer is based on the nuclear physicist J. Robert Oppenheimer, who was the director of the Manhattan Project and therefore universally considered the “father of the atomic bomb”. The character will be played by Cillian Murphy of Peaky Blinders fame. In Oppenheimer’s new poster, a character from the film is seen witnessing a nuclear blast. He is seen wearing spectacles. However, the glare appears to be so high that everything in the image appears washed out.

Fans react to Oppenheimer movie poster

Following the launch of the new poster from Oppenheimer Posters, fans have flooded the comments section with praises for the upcoming film. A social media user said, “Masterpiece all the way (sic).” Another commented, “Can’t wait to see it.”

Oppenheimer used no CGI for nuclear explosion scene, says Nolan

Christopher Nolan has always prioritized practical effects over VFX (he even flew an actual Boeing 747 for ‘Tenet’), so it’s no surprise he went the practical route when it came time to film a nuclear weapon detonation. But went on. “I think recreating the Trinity test (the first nuclear weapon detonation in New Mexico) without the use of computer graphics was a great challenge,” Nolan was quoted as saying by Variety.

For Interstellar, Dunkirk and Tenet cinematographer Hoyte van Hoytema reunited with Nolan for Oppenheimer, and the two managed to make IMAX a new kind of film stock for them. It will release on July 21, 2023.
