Universal Pictures has given us our first look at Christopher Nolan’s upcoming film, Oppenheimer with Cillian Murphy as the titular character.
Following an unfortunate divorce with Warner Bros, Nolan landed at Universal Pictures before it was revealed that his next film would be based around the life of J. Robert Oppenheimer. The film’s lead is frequent Nolan collaborator Cillian Murphy and the cast has steadily increased in scope since.
Since the film was first announced a number of other cast members were added to the roster. This has included Emily Blunt as Oppenheimer’s wife, Katherine Oppenheimer Vissering. Most recently, it was revealed that Kenneth Branagh was joining the cast of the upcoming film but that wasn’t all Universal Pictures was showing off.
