Wearing a hat and with a cigarette in his mouth, Murphy gives a moody look as he plays Oppenheimer, one of the fathers of the atomic bomb during the Second World War. On July 16, 1945, Oppenheimer was among those who observed the Trinity test in New Mexico, where the first atomic bomb was successfully detonated.

Oppenheimer is based on the 2005 Pulitzer Prize-winning book American Prometheus: The Triumph and Tragedy of J. Robert Oppenheimer by Kai Bird and the late Martin J. Sherwin. The film is slated to release on July 21, 2023.
