The official first teaser trailer for Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer is debuting exclusively in theatres attached to Jordan Peele’s Nope. The film’s first look poster was also released online on Thursday and shows Cillian Murphy’s figure silhouetted against a huge ball of fire and smoke in the background along with the tagline ‘The World Forever Changes’. Oppenheimer stars Cillian Murphy as theoretical physicist J Robert Oppenheimer, the director of the Manhattan Project and the “father of the atomic bomb.”

Emily Blunt says in the teaser as Oppenheimer’s wife, Katherine, “The world is changing, reforming. This is your moment.” A countdown appears on screen, “11 months, 24 days, 15 hours, 29 minutes,” as the film’s tagline reads on the poster and in the teaser. Robert Downey Jr’s character is heard in the teaser as he says referring to Oppenheimer, “The man who moved the earth,” followed by footage of smoke and fire and shots of Murphy in the foreground.
