The atomic bomb is finally heading to the small(er) screen, with Oppenheimer finally getting its streaming release date.

Christopher Nolan rarely misses – and in 2023 he succeeded big time with his atomic bomb drama, Oppenheimer.

Starring the likes of Cillian Murphy, Emily Blunt, and Florence Pugh, Oppenheimer follows the aforementioned creator and his team of scientists who spent years developing and designing the atomic bomb. Their work came to fruition on July 16, 1945, as they witnessed the world’s first nuclear explosion.

After its initial theatrical release in July 2023, the movie finally has a streaming release date and platform – here’s what we know.

Oppenheimer finally gets streaming release date

Oppenheimer will officially head to streaming from February 16, 2024, being available to binge on Peacock.

The Nolan movie marks one of the first big 2023 blockbusters to be made available for home streaming, with the likes of Barbie still waiting for its release date.

It comes as no surprise that the demand for Oppenheimer to be released on streaming platforms is high, given just how successful the movie was at the global box office – not to mention contributing to cinematic history through Barbenheimer.

The film currently has a certified fresh score of 93% on Rotten Tomatoes, with an audience score of 91%.

In our five-star review, we wrote: “Oppenheimer begins with a quote about Prometheus stealing from the gods, then being punished for all eternity. Which mirrors the tale being told here. But in spite of the fact that this is less biopic, and more horror movie, Oppenheimer nevertheless finds compassion in Robert’s story. Resulting in a towering achievement that’s up there with Nolan’s very best, and a film of both great importance, and true humanity.”

Keith Phipps at The Reveal added: “Every scene feels like a cataclysm waiting to happen, fitting for a film that builds, step-by-step, to the creation of a cataclysm machine. Oppenheimer both summons awe for what it took to build the bomb and for the changes it wrought.”

Mitchell Beaupre at The Film Stage agreed: “A violent reckoning with America’s bloodlust, filtered through a man whose ego and naïveté facilitated one of the most unspeakable monstrosities in the history of the world; an unprecedented devastation that still reverberates through civilizations today.”

Oppenheimer won’t be the only Christopher Nolan movie to get the Peacock treatment, with Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, The Dark Knight Rises, Dunkirk, Inception, and Memento all becoming available from February 1.
