“Oppenheimer” delves into the captivating narrative of the Manhattan Project, a clandestine American endeavor to construct the nuclear bomb during the 1930s and 40s. The story unfolds through the perspective of Robert J Oppenheimer, the renowned scientist widely hailed as the ‘Father of the atomic bomb.’ Portraying the titular role is the talented Cillian Murphy, who breathes life into this influential character.

Upon its release this Friday, “Oppenheimer” will commandeer IMAX screens worldwide, displacing Tom Cruise’s “Mission Impossible 7” after a mere ten days. Given that IMAX theaters showcase only one film at a time across the globe, this development speaks volumes about the film’s prominence. In India alone, there are 125 IMAX shows, all of which are expected to boast over 85% occupancy by Wednesday morning, a remarkable feat considering the movie’s release is still two days away. As a result, it is highly likely that the opening weekend’s IMAX shows will be completely sold out by the release day.
