Due to its duration and the fact that if we combine the above points, Oppenheimer It has qualities that no one really thought would make it his best project, going beyond the usual for a film Christopher Nolan There are no superheroes there. The filmmaker has always attracted a large audience with each of his releases and he even managed to do that with Tenet – Christopher Nolan Defends Long Films, Saying 'Oppenheimer' Is Two Minutes Shorter Than 'Avengers: Endgame'83% are in the worst phase of the pandemic, but this case was complicated as it is an R-rated biopic that also lasts 3 hours.

He said this during an interview Collider:

The running time is two minutes shorter than Avengers: Endgame, so we’ll stick with it. I told (producer) Emma Thomas from the beginning that it would be a three-hour film. I have to write a script that reflects that. That was our conversation with the studio. It’s a great story and it requires great talent. It’s a 180-page screenplay and a $180 million movie.

With this statement he also confirmed the budget of Oppenheimer. Although it is a drama of which it is the protagonist J. Robert Oppenheimer, the physicist known as the father of the atomic bomb, the film needed so much money to recreate a different time than today, where everything from the costumes to the vehicles found at the time were needed. It was also necessary to get the cast that was there, from actors like Murphy to Emily Blunt to Robert Downey Jr., and because the tests of the atomic bomb explosions were virtually recreated.

The plot of Oppenheimer, and the way Nolan tells this story captivated audiences so much that not only has it grossed $866 million worldwide to date, but it also made them forget that the film is three hours long. Although they are very different stories, Avengers: Endgame Plus, it kept the viewer on the edge of their seats, and the length hardly mattered from what was said before release.

Before the film’s release, Matt told Damon The direct one that the film was “fantastic” and that it lasted three hours, but that because of the way Nolan made it, those hours were very good and went by quickly.
