The anticipation for Christopher Nolan's upcoming film "Oppenheimer" is already evident, almost a year and a half before release. One of the most important reasons for this is the cast, which is bursting with well-known stars. So far, a number of names have already been confirmed, including Cillian Murphy as controversial scientist J. Robert Oppenheimer, Emily Blunt as his wife Katherine, Robert Downey Jr. as Lewis Strauss and Matt Damon as Lieutenant General Leslie Groves, who was the military leader of the Manhattan Project. Then later in December, Rami Malek joined the cast as an as-yet-unknown scientist along with Ben Safdie as the Hungarian scientist Edward Teller. Florence Pugh plays the US psychiatrist Jean Tatlock, who was not only a devoted member of the Communist Party but also had a long-lasting love affair with Oppenheimer. Just a few days ago, another new member joined the cast, namely US actor Josh Hartnett, who had his breakthrough in "Halloween H20" in 1998, but has not really starred in any major Hollywood productions since the 2010s. Content-wise, as already mentioned, Nolan's "Oppenheimer" centers around the Manhattan Project, which was the code name for the development of the atomic bomb first used in 1945 during World War II. Various scientists were involved in this, most notably, of course, the project's scientific director, Robert Oppenheimer. We are definitely excited about the current Nolan production and look forward to the movie, which is expected to be released on July 21, 2023.
