Oppenheimer is released on July 21, 2023, the same day that Barbie also makes it into cinemas. Meaning Christopher Nolan’s WWII biopic will be going toe-to-toe with a movie about a toy.

The film’s official synopsis calls it an “epic thriller that thrusts audiences into the pulse-pounding paradox of the enigmatic man who must risk destroying the world in order to save it.”

While at three hours, it’s also Nolan’s longest film thus far. Meaning Oppenheimer print are massive.

IMAX is Christopher Nolan’s preferred way for audiences to see his film. The writer-director participated in a TikTok video where he calls 70mm IMAX “the highest quality imaging format ever devised. It gives you an incredible sense of immersion in the image.”

To hammer the point home, Nolan adds: “It fills your peripheral vision. It immerses you in the image. The clarity. The crispness. It is the gold standard. It is the closest to reproducing the world the way that your eye sees it.”
