Christopher Nolan

Christopher Nolan is the closest thing to a star director that currently exists in Hollywood. Obviously, his beginnings were a bit more modest, but with ‘Memento’, his second feature film, he managed to catch Hollywood’s attention.

After ‘Insomnia’, Nolan received his first big break with ‘Batman Begins’, which would end up being the start of a successful superhero Batman trilogy. It is true that with ‘The Prestige (The final trick)’ he did not sweep, but ‘Origin’ did, thus demonstrating that he could bring great joy to the Hollywood studios beyond the films of Super hero.

This is something I would confirm again with ‘Interstellar’, one of the most acclaimed science fiction films of the 21st century to date, and with ‘Dunkirk’, a great war film. He had a little less luck with ‘Tenet’, a film he was keen to release despite the difficult situation in theaters due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The team

Hoyte VanHoytema

Nolan enjoys working with a team he knows. With the director of photography Hoyte van Hoytema he collaborated for the first time in ‘Interstellar’ and since then he has repeated in all his films. For its part, with the assembler jennifer licks and the composer Ludwig Goransson first worked on ‘Tenet’ because his usual allies (the publisher lee smith with ‘1917’ and the composer Hans Zimmer with ‘Dune’) were busy and he must have been so happy with the result that he rehearsed with them.

Trailer, images and poster

Filming hasn’t even started yet – the one at the top of the article belongs to the ‘Peaky Blinders’ series – so we don’t have any footage of ‘Oppenheimer’.

When does ‘Oppenheimer’ hit theaters?

The theatrical release date of “Oppenheimer” is July 21, 2023. Nolan is very fond of releasing his films in July and this was surely one of the many requests he imposed on Universal to make his film with this studio.
