The Oscar®-nominated writer-director brings to screen his most ambitious and urgent movie yet, a sweeping, epic thriller that takes audience into the past and delves deep into the psyche of a singular American mind: a brilliant scientist who ended World War II—and who aspired to end to all war—with a world-shattering invention that represented the total sum of human ingenuity, an invention that would remake civilization, even as its very existence threatened the future of mankind. Inspired by the Pulitzer Prize-winning book American Prometheus by Kai Bird and Martin J. Sherwin, Oppenheimer chronicles the life and legacy of J. Robert Oppenheimer, the father of the atomic bomb.

The film stars Cillian Murphy (The Dark Knight Rises, Peaky Blinders) as J. Robert Oppenheime.
