Re: Box Office

I don't see it moving, especially after TENET moved off that beloved third weekend of July date of his and then went on to underperform. Oppenheimer staking that date even after he moved to Universal shows us that it's not a WB thing, but a Nolan thing; he considers it to be some kind of essential g...

Re: Cast

In all likelihood they've just been cut from the film, not unlike how Mr. Churchill was 'cut' from Dunkirk.

Re: Cillian Murphy Leads the Cast of Oppenheimer

[...] Hard to believe this movie won’t open with the bomb. Or it’ll cut right before they drop it. [...] That would be the most conventional way to open the film if this were any other filmmaker, but this being Mr. Nolan, I would be quite disappointed if he does this. Even just reading that sounds ...

Re: Oppenheimer - General Information

So I just saw Munich: The Edge of War (2021), and I couldn't help but compare it with Oppenheimer, seeing as how they are both prestige historical dramas set around WW2 focusing on white men doing important things. It made me realize that the deal that Mr. Nolan squeezed out of Universal is even mor...

Re: Oppenheimer - General Information

That is a gorgeous shot. Huh, I guess I never thought about it until now because it goes by so quick and it's only used as a backdrop for Kat to spew non-relevant exposition about how many people the yacht can fit lmao Anyway, I wonder if Mr. Nolan should have gone with Sony instead for distribution...

Re: Robert Downey Jr. will play Lewis Strauss

Don't get any Oscar hopes up. At best, it'll get noms, but that's about it. The July release date tells us that this is not an Oscar play, because that's basically Oscar suicide. Recency bias is just too strong. When was the last time that a summer release won in any of the major categories? Mad Max...

Re: Oppenheimer - General Information

It's a surprise to see that Mr. Crowley is out; I could have sworn that that was him walking next to Mr. Nolan in the Berkeley photo. And Mr. Kurland too? Wow. On another note, as others have probably said, the recent casting news (someone from Mr. Oppenheimer's earlier life and also his later life)...

Re: Cast

Star-power-wise, it's definitely up there with a few contenders. After TENET's underperformance and his leaving WB, I kinda get the sense that he's trying to leave as little to chance as possible(?) Casting-fit-wise, tho? That's gotta be Dunkirk, the GOAT. Every single role in Dunkirk (save one) is ...

Re: Emily Blunt joins the cast

You gotta watch it; their chemistry in that is impressive and had to have been the main reason that Mr. Nolan cast her in this.

I can't believe that it's been like two days and I'm still giddy about it all (her being cast at all, but then that she will play opposite Mr. Murphy, etc.).
