Find out what Christopher Nolan, Cillian Murphy, Florence Pugh, Robert Downey Jr and Emily Blunt had to say about Oppenheimer!
As the highly anticipated biographical thriller “Oppenheimer,” directed by Christopher Nolan, prepares for its release, IMDb has unveiled exclusive behind-the-scenes footage from the film. The stellar ensemble cast, including Cillian Murphy, Florence Pugh, Robert Downey Jr., and Emily Blunt, shared their thoughts on the project.
Christopher Nolan expressed his long-standing interest in Oppenheimer’s story, stating, “I’ve been fascinated by Oppenheimer’s story for quite some time. What struck me was the fact that, leading up to the Trinity test, there was a real concern that pressing that button could ignite the Earth’s atmosphere and obliterate the entire planet. Yet, they went ahead and pushed that button. I wanted to transport the audience to that extraordinary moment in human history.” He further emphasized the significance of Cillian Murphy’s portrayal of Oppenheimer, stating, “Cillian’s portrayal is the heart of the film, but I knew he needed an exceptional ensemble surrounding him.”
