Christopher Nolan's 'Oppenheimer' trailer released onlinetext_fields
Los Angeles: Christopher Nolan's "Oppenheimer" has had its official teaser trailer released online after debuting exclusively in theatres last weekend in conjunction with Jordan Peele's "Nope," reports 'Variety'.
Universal Pictures has uploaded a short teaser to platforms like YouTube and Twitter, but the clip is currently only playing in a continuous live stream loop.
The teaser starts with the words "The world is changing, reforming. This is your moment," pronounced by Emily Blunt, who plays Katherine, wife of the American theoretical physicist J. Robert Oppenheimer, who was the director of the Manhattan Project and therefore universally regarded as the "father of the atomic bomb".
A countdown appears on screen: "11 months, 24 days, 15 hours, 29 minutes". Nolan, according to 'Variety', loves a ticking-clock structure, and it appears he's again embracing one as the film counts down toward the day "the world changes forever", as the film's tagline reads on the poster and in the teaser.
"Oppenheimer" stars longtime Nolan collaborator and "Peaky Blinders" star Cillian Murphy playing the titular character. Joining him and Blunt is an all-star cast comprising Robert Downey Jr, Matt Damon, Florence Pugh, Rami Malek, Benny Safdie, Josh Hartnett, Dane DeHaan, Jack Quaid, Matthew Modine, Alden Ehrenreich, David Krumholtz, Michael Angarano, and Kenneth Branagh.
As the title appears on screen, Robert Downey Jr's character is heard. "The man who moved the earth," he says, referring to Oppenheimer. Footage of fire and smoke alternates between black-and-white shots of Murphy as Oppenheimer, notes 'Variety'.
