Oppenheimer, Christopher Nolan’s epic film, is creating a stir as it approaches the billion-dollar club. Both in terms of critical praise and box office performance, it has been rocking. We can safely assume that this film has taken over 2023. With outstanding actors like Robert Downey Jr. and Cillian Murphy, Oppenheimer isn’t just breaking records, it’s smashing them. Notably, it has broken the record of Christopher Nolan’s earlier masterpiece, Interstellar, and even topped Zack Snyder’s $873 million grosser. Even more amazing is the fact that it exceeded the epic $2 billion hit of an Avengers movie in the same area.


Christopher Nolan broke his own record with Oppenheimer

The renowned filmmaker Christopher Nolan revealed a shocking detail about his still-playing movie Oppenheimer in an interview with Total Film. Oppenheimer is Nolan’s longest film to date, clocking in at slightly under three hours. Nolan is renowned for his mastery of cinema in films like Tenet and Dunkirk. In his own words, in an interview with Total Film, it’s “kissing three hours.”

This runtime is currently creating cinematic history. The record-breaking length of Batman vs. Superman, which was two hours and thirty-one minutes, was something we didn’t believe any movie could top. At two hours and twenty-nine minutes, even the epic Avengers: Infinity War was shorter. But as usual, Nolan pushes himself beyond his comfort zone, as Oppenheimer runs longer than his previous epic Interstellar, which clocks in at two hours, forty-nine minutes. The fact that the man beat his own record is not at all surprising. After all, it is Christopher Nolan!

Worldwide box office records are being set by Oppenheimer

Oppenheimer, Christopher Nolan’s most recent movie, has experienced success at the box office. It brought in an astounding $850 million worldwide in a little more than six weeks. This is an important accomplishment. It surpasses Nolan’s earlier movie Inception to become his third-highest-grossing. Only The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises, which both brought in over a billion dollars, and Interstellar, which made $677 million, came in ahead of it. Even more impressive is the fact that Oppenheimer outperformed Inception domestically by $292 million.
