Universal and Syncopy announced that Oppenheimer, Christopher Nolan’s latest film, will be released in mid-July 2023. Starring Cillian Murphy, the film about one of the inventors of the atomic bomb will have a 100-day theatrical window!


Comcast desperately tried to limit this window of exploitation between the launch of the film in theaters and the start of distribution in PVOD, which begins on the 18the day for most outings and from the 32e day for films with a good start in the United States (receipts over $ 50 million). The choice of such a long broadcast window is not a surprise, especially for a film of Christopher nolan, one of the most bankable directors in recent years. It’s also quite amusing that the film’s release date coincides with Christopher Nolan’s preferences when he was still working with Warner bros.

Indeed, the director and the Warner Bros studios released several films around mid-July, with consistently excellent results: Charlie and the chocolate factory ($ 55 million in 2005), Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix($ 139 million in 2007), The Dark Knight, The Dark Knight ($ 167 million in 2008), Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince ($ 158 million in 2009), Inception ($ 62 million in 2010), Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 ($ 169 million in 2011), The Dark Knight Rises ($ 160 million in 2012), Conjuring: The Warren Records (41 million in 2013) and Dunkirk ($ 50 million in 2017).

Two other films should have been released around mid-July: Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (in 2015, the output was moved to March 2016) and Tenet (in 2020). According to several sources, the contract between Christopher Nolan and Universal would ban the studio from releasing a movie three weeks before or three weeks after the launch of Oppenheimer. Currently, a film produced by Universal, the title of which has not yet been revealed, is scheduled for release on June 9, 2023, another on August 4, 2023, and an Illumination Studios film is scheduled for June 30, 2023.

To make this film inspired by the biography of Robert Oppenheimer written by Kai Bird and Martin J. Sherwim, American Prometheus (Pulitzer Prize winner), Christopher Nolan will be accompanied by Hoyte Van Hoytema, with whom he has worked on numerous occasions. Jennifer lame will be in charge of the assembly and Ludwig Gorasson music.

The summer of 2023 is therefore likely to be rich in major cinema outings. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 (Marvel) is slated for May 2023, as is Dungeons and Dragons (Paramount) and The little Mermaid (Walt Disney). The June releases will begin with Shazam! Fury of the gods, before moving on to a film from the saga Star Trek next week. Finally, an Illumination Studios film will be released at the end of the month.

The month of July will not be left out with Mission: Impossible 8 (beginning of July), Coyote vs. Acme and Oppenheimer (mid-July), as well as a film by the MCU whose title is still unknown (end of July). The only film officially scheduled for release in August 2023 is the last Ninja Turtles from Paramount studios.

Of course, all these outings are planned in two years… and two years is a long time! However, now that the release date of Oppenheimer is set for mid-July, one can be sure of one thing: at least one big summer 2023 film will be released as planned on that date, no matter what might happen over the next two years. .
