Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer gets Philippines cinema release date

As with many other Nolan films, Oppenheimer is shot with IMAX 65mm cameras!

Universal Pictures recently announced that Christopher Nolan’s next film Oppenheimer will be released in the Philippines this July.

It has been nearly three years now since Nolan’s last movie, Tenet, was released in theaters. Sadly though, fans of Nolan’s work in the Philippines weren’t able to watch that movie in cinemas due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Finally though, theaters are open for Nolan’s next movie. And in case you haven’t seen it yet, you can check out the newest trailer for Oppenheimer here:

As the movie’s name implies, Nolan’s next film follows J. Robert Oppenheimer who is known as the father of the atomic bomb. In the film, Oppenheimer is played by Nolan regular, Cillian Murphy.

Murphy is joined by Emily Blunt as his wife, Katherine “Kitty” Oppenheimer. other members of the cast include Matt Damon who portrays General Leslie Groves Jr., director of the Manhattan Project, and Robert Downey, Jr. as Lewis Strauss, a founding commissioner of the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission.

Much like Nolan’s other films since The Dark Knight, this movie is shot partly with IMAX cameras. Specifically, a combination of IMAX 65mm and 65mm large-format film were used, along with IMAX black and white analog photography for the film’s black and white scenes.

Oppenheimer will be released in cinemas in the Philippines on July 19, 2023. The film will be screened in regular cinemas and IMAX nationwide.
