In a first teaser for Christopher Nolan’s newest film Oppenheimer, Cillian Murphy demonstrates how that blast very well may have devastated the globe.

Nuclear physicist and the inventor of the atomic bomb J. Robert Oppenheimer famously said, “Now I am become death, the destroyer of worlds,” as he saw the first use of the weapon of mass destruction.

In the Pulitzer Prize–winning novel American Prometheus: The Triumph and Tragedy of J. Robert Oppenheimer by Kai Bird and the late Martin J. Sherwin, played by Murphy, the turmoil and politics surrounding the development of the nuclear bomb are explored, as well as the complex man at its core.

Oppenheimer is first depicted in the teaser as a damaged individual whose imperfections are overlooked in favor of his genius. When reluctantly requested to contribute to the conclusion of the Second World War, he cites one possible solution: a nuclear weapon constructed covertly in the desert with the devastation capacity to deter anyone from engaging in further combat.

He watches the large-scale bomb’s construction while listening to a melancholy musical accompaniment, seeing a pillar of fire engulfing their adversaries and quickly putting an end to the conflict.

The main objection he encounters from superiors is that there is a non-zero risk that the detonation will not only wipe out the United States’ adversaries but also the entire world by destroying the environment.

As the launch draws closer and the disastrous repercussions become more apparent, a countdown counts down while the music gradually gets louder.

The trailer teases us with the words “We all know what happened there” as the countdown reaches zero, but Nolan withholds his grand non-CGI bomb detonation for the time being.

Nolan was able to assemble what, on paper, might be one of the finest casts ever put together in order to accurately depict Oppenheimer’s scope.

Emily Blunt, who plays the scientist’s wife Kitty, co-stars with Murphy in the movie. Matt Damon, Florence Pugh, Rami Malek, Kenneth Branagh, Gary Oldman, Robert Downey Jr., Benny Safdie, Josh Hartnett, Dane DeHaan, Jack Quaid, Matthew Modine, Alden Ehrenreich, David Krumholtz, Michael Angarano, and Matthias Schweighöfer are among the several actors who have joined the ensemble.

As the director of the beloved Dark Knight movies, the surreal Inception, and Interstellar, among others that needed truly astounding amounts of research and practical effects work, Nolan is no stranger to building massive, inventive cinematic giants.

Oppenheimer is a monster, though, even by his high standards. The director and his team, together with visual effects supervisor Andrew Jackson, reconstructed the complete Los Alamos testing facility where the Trinity test took place, in addition to the test itself and all the quantum physics work Oppenheimer and his team would’ve performed to build the weapon.

It was difficult for Murphy, who read much to fully comprehend Oppenheimer and portray him in all of his complexity.

Even in the teaser, the scope of the undertaking is clearly visible as the camera passes over Los Alamos’ enormous building.

When the historical epic is released, it will face some fierce competition from A-list celebrities. Another great, artificial, and brightly pink movie, Greta Gerwig’s Barbie, was scooping up stars at the same time that Oppenheimer was. As luck would have it, both movies are scheduled to come out on the same day, setting up a blockbuster war of epic proportions.

The Oppenheimer movie debuts on July 21, 2023.
