Christopher Nolan: “It’s the first theater anywhere in the world where we will show ‘Oppenheimer’ on 70 mm film.”
Cillian Murphy: “The reaction so far has been amazing. It’s a film designed for theaters, you know, for IMAX, so I’m gonna watch it tonight.”
Cillian Murphy (as J. Robert Oppenheimer): “We’re in a race against the Nazis. And I know what it means, if the Nazis have a bomb.”
Cillian Murphy: “I think it ask a lot of questions, some of the big kind of ethical, moral, paradoxical questions that there is.”
Matt Damon as (Leslie Groves Jr.): “Are we saying there’s a chance that when we push that button, we destroy the world?”
Cillian Murphy (as J. Robert Oppenheimer): “Chances are near zero.”

Cillian Murphy (as J. Robert Oppenheimer): “I can perform this miracle.”
Will Roberts (as Gen George C Marshall): “World War II would be over; our boys would come home.”

Robert Downey Jr.: “You literally – you’re gonna feel like you’ve been brought back to when it happened.”
Emily Blunt: “It’s more than a film. This is a heart-racing experience, and to get the full kidnap of it, you gotta go see it, go see it massive.”
Matt Damon: “They invented black and white IMAX for sequences in this movie. I mean, it’s just, that’s how you should see it if you can.”
Robert Downey Jr. (as Lewis Strauss): “Truman needs to know what’s next.”
Cillian Murphy (as J. Robert Oppenheimer): “What’s next?”
Cillian Murphy: “My 15-year-old kid saw it, and he was knocked out and was very, very curious about all that time in history, and its relevance to today.”
