The movie Oppenheimer it gets so noisy early that it’s so disturbing that people leave the theater scared and nervous. At least that’s how her director is Christopher Nolan say according variety. And it kind of makes sense, given the subject matter.
“Some people leave the movie absolutely devastated,” Nolan said variety. “I can not speak. I mean, there’s an element of fear that’s there in the history and there in the fundamentals. But the love of the characters, the love of the relationships is as strong as I’ve ever done it.”
Nolan added: “It’s an intense experience because it’s an intense story. I showed it to a director recently who said it was kind of a horror movie. I disagree.”
Oppenheimer was the scientist who helped create the deadliest weapon on Earth. Some might think that a bio about a scientist would be tedious, in the vein of “A Beautiful Mind,” however, considering that Oppenheimer’s creation could end the world is terrifying, and there are currently over 12,500 of his inventions scattered around the globe.
Biographer Kai bird he wrote the book that Oppenheimer he relies, and even he was shaken: “Right now, I’m in awe and recovering emotionally from seeing it,” he said.
Oppenheimer opens in theaters nationwide on July 21 from Universal Pictures.
The nuclear fear is real
It’s called a nuclear bomb and it’s being used for “Global Thermonuclear War”. If that sounds familiar, it’s because it was the video game Matthew Broderick play against WOPR, a virtually self-aware computer that used the real world as a game board, in the 1983 film War games.
For all of you in the new generation horror fans, War games it was a movie released at a time in the 80s when the threat of a real-life disaster movie was not only possible, but plausible.
You see, in 1983 the Soviet Union was accidentally – to use an expression in today’s terms – trolled by the United States when that country’s early warning systems triggered an alarm warning them that America had launched four nuclear missiles in their direction.
It appears that a malfunctioning satellite computer created a false alarm and if Russia had not waited to confirm the launch and instantly retaliated, it would have gone off World War III.
If you don’t think that’s scary, consider that it just has to be one nuclear bomb to destroy an entire city, killing millions of people. The after effects would continue to be destructive for many years afterwards.
Remember, there is 12,500 warheads at done with a push of a button right now; imagine what many could do to the planet.
The nuclear scare of the 80s was a real thing. Disaster movies have been made on the subject and even horror films have used the effects of nuclear weapons as a plot point. Movies like The day after, The Manhattan Project, Red Dawnand Mad Max they were heavy hitters. Wes Craven also weighed in The hills have eyes in 1977 with a remake in 2006.
