Christopher Nolan’s ‘Oppenheimer’ Could Run Around Three Hours

According to a report from Puck News (via The Playlist), Christopher Nolan‘s latest film, Oppenheimer, is set to run around three hours, marking it Nolan’s longest film yet. As a filmmaker, Nolan has had a history of making films that surpass the two-and-a-half-hour mark, with 2014’s Interstellar being his current longest film with a runtime of 169 minutes.

The report states that the film is expected to surpass the two-hour-and-fifty-minute mark, though an exact runtime hasn’t been confirmed. If this is the case, Oppenheimer will be the longest IMAX 70mm release of all time, surpassing Nolan’s Interstellar, which had special film plates built for the film.

Oppenheimer is a highly-anticipated movie for 2023, with a star-studded cast comprised of Cillian Murphy, Emily Blunt, Robert Downey Jr, Rami Malek, Florence Pugh, Benny Safdie, Josh Hartnett, Kenneth Branagh, Dane DeHaan, Alden Ehrenreich, David Krumholtz, Matthew Modine, Josh Peck, Jack Quaid, David Dastmalchian, Jason Clarke, Devon Bostick, Alex Wolff, and Tony Goldwyn among [many] others.
