Watch epic new trailer for Cillian Murphy movie ‘Oppenheimer’

A second trailer has been unveiled for Oppenheimer and… wow!

From the director of Dunkirk, The Prestige, Inception, and The Dark Knight trilogy, the epic historical thriller is set to arrive in cinemas this summer.

English filmmaker Christopher Nolan’s latest movie tells the story of J. Robert Oppenheimer, the American theoretical physicist known as the “father of the atomic bomb” due to his role in the Manhattan Project during World War II.

Watch the brand new trailer here:

Oppenheimer boasts a huge ensemble cast of British, Irish and American acting talent, with Peaky Blinders star Cillian Murphy leading the movie as J. Robert Oppenheimer.

Emily Blunt, most recently seen in BBC period drama series The English, plays Oppenheimer’s wife, biologist and botanist Kitty.

The British cast also includes Florence Pugh (Little Women) as psychiatrist Jean Tatlock, with Gary Oldman (Harry Potter), Louise Lombard (The House of Eliott), Guy Burnet (Hollyoaks), and James D’Arcy (Broadchurch), plus Northern Irish star Kenneth Branagh (Death on the Nile).

The American side of the cast features Matt Damon (The Martian), as General Leslie Groves Jr., director of the Manhattan Project, and Robert Downey Jr. (Sherlock Holmes) as Lewis Strauss, a founding commissioner of the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission.

They’re joined by Rami Malek (Bohemian Rhapsody), Josh Hartnett (Penny Dreadful), Benny Safdie (Licorice Pizza), Michael Angarano (This is Us), Dane DeHaan (The Amazing Spider-Man 2), Dylan Arnold (Halloween), David Krumholtz (The Ballad of Buster Scruggs), Alden Ehrenreich (Solo: A Star Wars Story), and Matthew Modine (The Dark Knight Rises).

Here’s the first trailer from last year:

Oppenheimer will be released in cinemas around the world on Friday 21 July and we’d suggest seeing this one on as big a screen as possible!

Shot on IMAX, we’re told that the movie “thrusts audiences into the pulse-pounding paradox of the enigmatic man who must risk destroying the world in order to save it.”

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.

Cillian Murphy is due to start shooting the Peaky Blinders movie soon, and he’s also busy adapting Claire Keegan’s acclaimed novel Small Things Like These.

Dunkirk is available on DVD.
