As it can be easily understood from the title itself, Oppenheimer He will tell us about a very important moment in the twentieth century: the development of the atomic bomb and the role played by Robert Oppenheimer in the Manhattan Project which, during the Second World War, led to the discovery of a technology that was then used, with terrible results, in Japan to carry out the conflict with, unfortunately, the well-known with atomic bombs Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

Oppenheimer’s Special Priority

Partnership, the partnership between the director and the studio, that has lasted for nearly twenty years, bringing a huge dose of satisfaction — and dollars — to both parties. But then with Tenet and with the novel coronavirus pandemic, the feud between the director and lead producer of the Dark Knight Trilogy broke off. And their lanes are divided.
For any reason? It is easy to say: the differences between Christopher Nolan and the Warner Bros. In the field of cinema distribution during health emergencies. As it is known, starting in December 2020, with the release of Wonderful Woman 1984Warner has established that all of the films on the 2021 slate will arrive, at the same time, both in cinemas and streaming on HBO Max (North American limited, editor) as a response to the crisis in cinema and the fact that in the midst of the pandemic, many people are still Not ready to go back to live collective experiences in a closed environment like the cinema. A choice that was criticized in a very hot way and repeated by the director, a huge supporter of the cinema experience in the hall. The British director’s complaint, which was also based on the fact that the lack of film distribution would have eroded profits, a succession of social security and pension funds, and not so many people who like him or love him. However, the main actors in high-budget films have no economic problems at all, like many of the workers who make the Hollywood machine work.
For its part, Warner Bros. explained that it was Tenet’s poor commercial performance that led to the choice of day-and-date hybrid distribution. In January 2021, everything was already pointing in a direction that didn’t include a renewed collaboration between the filmmaker and Warner Bros. (here are all the details).
Christopher Nolan He was free, and out of his door all the biggest facts in the entertainment world came out, including Netflix, which actually started courting the director. It was clearly somewhat unlikely that Nolan would end up working alongside a company whose only business would be live broadcasting, and as many expected, the deal is for Oppenheimer Then he was signed with my world. This almost historical specialization of the director ensured carte blanche in terms of budget and the exclusive survival of the feature film in cinemas. Nolan was aiming for 120 days, and Universal for 90 days: a compromise was finally reached at 100 days.

Towards the end of January 2022, M Night Shyamalandirector de The Sixth Sense And split, ripHe explained that he had an active role in persuading the colleague Christopher Nolan In the choice of Universal as “Homepage” from Oppenheimer. On the other hand, from the next visit to Knock at Cabin, the ties between Shyamalan and Universal are solid. It is Shyamalan who explains:
I expressed everything I feel about Universal’s commitment to storytelling and the in-room cinema experience. At a time when everyone is trying to sell this fantasy that sees the original films and theatrical experience dying, I would like to reiterate the fact that this is something I absolutely do not believe in. Not even a little. Universal continues to emphasize that this is her true identity. For this, I hope that Jordan Peele, Christopher Nolan, myself and all the other people who will come here – or to other studios – can prove that everyone wants to see original, unpublished ideas in cinema.
