New Delhi: The first teaser of Christopher Nolan’s upcoming film ‘Oppenheimer’ was released on the film’s official website and on Universal Pictures’ YouTube channel. It was a brief but unique teaser that continues to play on loop.  The film is a biopic of J Robert Oppenheimer, who led the Manhattan Project during World War II.

In the teaser video, Cillian Murphy, who plays the titular character, is seen picking up and wearing a hat. As Murphy walks, people click his photographs. In between these shots, we can see the shots of an atomic bomb blast. The most interesting thing in the teaser is the countdown of the film. It plays on loop as the countdown time changes every time.

The film will feature a star-studded cast with Emily Blunt, Robert Downey Jr, Matt Damon, Florence Pugh and Rami Malek along with Murphy. The movie is an adaptation of Oppenheimer’s biography titled ‘American Prometheus: The Triumph and Tragedy of J. Robert Oppenheimer’, which was written by Kai Bird and Martin J Sherwin. This is the fourth film for the duo of Christopher Nolan and Cillian Murphy, before this, the duo worked on The Dark Knight films, Inception, and Dunkirk.

Fans liked the teaser and showed their excitement on Twitter.

On the other hand, a Twitter user found the countdown to be just a gimmick.

‘Oppenheimer’ is produced by Thomas Hayslip, Charles Roven and Emma Thomas along with Nolan himself. The film is set to release on 21 July 2023.
