“The world will remember this day.” Universal has revealed the second full trailer for Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer, opening in theaters worldwide this July. The first trailer debuted in December, and with a few months left until this opens it’s time to send the hype into the stratosphere. Oppenheimer tells the story of American scientist J. Robert Oppenheimer and his role in the development of the atomic bomb, working at the Los Alamos Laboratory on the Manhattan Project in the 1940s. The cast features Cillian Murphy, with Emily Blunt as “Kitty” Oppenheimer, Matt Damon as Leslie Groves, Robert Downey Jr. as Lewis Strauss, Florence Pugh as Jean Tatlock, as well as Rami Malek, Benny Safdie, Josh Hartnett, Dane DeHaan, Jack Quaid, Matthew Modine, Alden Ehrenreich, Jason Clarke, David Krumholtz, Kenneth Branagh, David Dastmalchian, and many others. I love that Einstein shows up briefly. What a cast! What a story! I’ve got a good feeling this is going to be as profound as Nolan wants, a story about this mighty power – the good and bad sides of what Oppenheimer and his scientists pulled off. Do not miss this.
Here’s the second official trailer (+ poster) for Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer, direct from YouTube:
