Can Cillian Murphy stop World War II without blowing up the planet? That is the question raised by the new trailer for the based-on-real-events Oppenheimer (out July 1), which you can watch below.
Directed by The Dark Knight and Inception filmmaker Christopher Nolan, the film stars Murphy as J. Robert Oppenheimer, the theoretical physicist and so-called "Father of the atomic bomb." Set during World War II, Oppenheimer details the scientist's attempt to create the world's first nuclear weapon.
Oppenheimer is based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning book American Prometheus: The Triumph and Tragedy of J. Robert Oppenheimer by Kai Bird and the late Martin J. Sherwin.
