Download Trailer 1 for Oppenheimer (2023)
Christopher Nolan’s latest film stars Cillian Murphy (Peaky Blinders) as J. Robert Oppenheimer, the head of the Los Alamos Laboratory during the development of the atomic bomb in the late days of WWII. In a world that is increasingly embracing streaming, Nolan is one of the most vocal advocates for experiencing films the best way possible: on a really big screen. Warner Bros. distributed Nolan’s films since Memento (2000), including his Batman Trilogy, Inception, Interstellar, Dunkirk (2017) and Tenet (2020). But when Warner Bros. announced their plans to have same day releases for their 2021 slate of films in theaters and on HBO Max, Nolan was furious, and according to Vanity Fair called HBO Max the ‘worst streaming service’. So Nolan left Warner Bros. and went to Universal to distribute and bankroll this next project.
That project is Oppenheimer (2023), shot using IMAX 65mm and 65mm large format; and also the first film ever to use IMAX black and white film. In addition to the standard D-Cinema release, there will be some special engagements in 70mm, 35mm and IMAX film.
Trailer 1 is now up at the Oppenheimer (2023) page. There are 4K and HD versions, as well as two different aspect ratios. There is a 2.39:1 version in 1920×804 and 3840×1608 and a 2.20:1 version which is only available in 1920×874 resolution which offers an additional 70 horizontal lines of picture. According to the Technical Specs at IMDB, the 2.20:1 aspect ratio is the 70mm and D-Cinema presentation while 35mm engagements will be shown as 2.39:1. If you see it in Digital IMAX some scenes will be 1.90:1 but if you are fortunate to be at an IMAX film presentation some scenes will be in the full 1.43:1 IMAX aspect ratio. I am thinking that extra height will come in handy for a mushroom cloud.
