Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer successfully charmed the viewers in Japan even after it was released months later. Everybody was skeptical about how the Land of the Rising Sun would react to the film based on the life of J Robert Oppenheimer, aka Father of the Atomic Bomb. The bombs had a devastating impact on the people, and it lasted for years. It also received mixed reviews in the early screenings, but things look positive for the Cillian Murphy-led movie.

The historical epic focused on the inner turmoil of the physicist and other conflicts. It showcased how he and his team worked for years developing and designing the atomic bomb. They earned success on July 16, 1945, and the world’s first nuclear bomb, forever changing the course of history. The team did an amazing job portraying the characters and won all the major awards this season, including seven Oscars.
