Christopher Nolan He faces a litmus test with ‘Oppenheimer’, since it is his first film since he left Warner, a studio with which he did not end on good terms after the release of ‘Tenet’. For his new work, he has had a multimillion-dollar budget and Universal promised to invest heavily in his promotional campaign, something very unusual for a biopic of these characteristics. Perhaps for this reason, the author of ‘Interstellar’ has decided bring out the heavy artillery.
There will be those who will not be able to see
It’s official that ‘Oppenheimer’ is going to be Nolan’s first film to receive an R rating in America in over 20 years, since her previous feature film that had her was ‘Insomnio’, released in 2002 -since then they have all received a PG-13-. To this we must add that it will also be the longest title of her career with a duration of 3 hours. There are more and more elements against it in order to be a box office success, because with an R, minors have to be accompanied by an adult to see it and with such long footage, sessions are lost…
The reason for the R rating is due to the inclusion of some scenes of sex, nudity and inappropriate language for minors. It is unknown what exact weight that will have in this film around the father of the atomic bomb, but what is clear is that Nolan did not want to fall short when offering his vision of the figure of J.Robert Oppenheimer.
cillian murphy starred in this film with one of the most impressive casts in recent years. The curious thing is that it will compete directly at the box office with ‘Barbie’, another title that has also brought together half of Hollywood and that has had the same budget as ‘Oppenheimer’.
To this we must add that Nolan has stated that the best format to watch the film is in IMAX 70mm, something that, for example, only 25 cinemas have in the entire United States. In addition, the IMAX format prints will have to be handled with great care, as each one weighs around 270 kilos. Another demonstration that the filmmaker is up to no bullshit here.
