The production quickly dethroned “Federer: Twelve Final Days,” despite it being one of the streamer’s most significant documentaries this year. It also outshone “The Blue Angels,” even amid the Glen Powell fever.

Nolan’s creation centers on Robert Oppenheimer, the father of the atomic bomb, exploring the circumstances that led him to craft this destructive force and its profound impact on his life, the United States, and the world.

It features a star-studded cast, with Cillian Murphy leading the drama alongside stellar performances by Robert Downey Jr., Emily Blunt, Florence Pugh, and Matt Damon.

Noted for its accuracy, “Oppenheimer” includes scenes lifted word-for-word from the book “American Prometheus” and real-life events. The complex plot, combined with outstanding IMAX cinematography, ensures this movie will be remembered forever.
