A biographical film about the creator of the atomic bomb, Oppenheimer, directed by Christopher Nolan, will appear on streaming platforms no earlier than the end of November. film producer Emma Thomas told AP News.
The film debuted in theaters on July 21. The film continues to play on giant screens, including the popular TCL Chinese Theater in Los Angeles and AMC Lincoln Square 13 in New York.
“The reason we are still in theaters is because the public demands it. It is not something we can force; I wish it were possible, but it’s not,” says Thomas.
Typically, movies reach home viewers in digital format approximately 45 days after release, even if we are talking about a blockbuster. However, in the case of “Oppenheimer,” it will not be possible to watch the film from home until almost four months later.
Last week, Oppenheimer surpassed Bohemian Rhapsody to become the highest-grossing biopic in history. The film grossed $12 million in its ninth weekend of release. We talk in more detail here.
