In these days the Total Film magazine has released a large preview of the film containing new images that allow you to take a better look at the characters played respectively by Robert Downey Jr. and Emily Blunt, i.e. Levi Strauss, head of the Atomic Energy Commission, and Katherine Vissering Oppenheimer, wife of the theoretical physicist. Florence Pugh will play Jean Tatlock, a member of the Community Party of the United States with whom Oppenheimer had an affair. The film, described as "an epic thriller about the enigmatic man who risked destroying the whole world to save it", marked the end of the partnership between Christopher Nolan and Warner Bros., after the collaborations for the Dark Knight trilogy. The director will produce the film together with his wife Emma Thomas for their banner Syncopy Inc.
