Christopher Nolan
"People are allowed to go see two movies in a weekend," the "Oppenheimer" star said of the shared July 21 release date of both buzzy films.
Going Atomic
"You’re making a demand of an actor that very few actors in the history of film can rise to," Nolan said of casting Murphy as the atomic bomb inventor.
Nolan's commitment to practical effects knows no bounds.
Spoiler Alert
"Just tell me what I'm doing, just tell me what my motivation is, and then I want to see the movie," Murphy recalled saying to director Christopher Nolan.
Florence Pugh, Robert Downey Jr., Emily Blunt, and Matt Damon also star in the World War II ensemble period piece centered on the creation of the atomic bomb.
"It felt like the right time to take on a bigger responsibility," Murphy said of playing the father of the atomic bomb.
"Working with Christopher Nolan was quite possibly one of the most thrilling experiences in a different way," Pugh said.
Nolan teased the trailer will debut in theaters ahead of "Guardians of the Galaxy" showings in two weeks.
"All I can say is, I am so envious I didn’t get to be on set for this production," Peele said alongside "Oppenheimer" and "Nope" cinematographer Hoyte Van Hoytema.
"Oppenheimer" might be the smallest film Nolan has made in years, but early footage bears all of the trademarks of his unique visual style.
From Nolan's Howard Hughes biopic to Tarantino's "Pulp Fiction" prequel, these are the unmade movies we'll always dream of seeing.
Nolan is one of the industry's leading visual artists, thanks to collaborations with Hoyte van Hoytema and Wally Pfister.
