‘Oppenheimer’ Runtime Clocks in as Christopher Nolan’s Longest Movie

This summer, get ready to sit still for a long time. According to information given on Twitter by Puck News analyst Julia Alexander and Matt Belloni of Puck News' newsletter, Oppenheimer will be Christopher Nolan's longest film, with a length of roughly three hours. An official runtime will be provided when we get closer to the movie's release this summer because post-production work is often completed right up until the last minute.

The length of movies has increased recently, from epics like Avatar: The Way of Water to superhero blockbusters like Black Panther: Wakanda Forever (two hours and 41 minutes, or 161 minutes) and The Batman (two hours and 56 minutes, or 176 minutes) (three hours and 12 minutes, or 192 minutes). Fans of the director will recognize this as nothing new, as his longest works to date include The Dark Knight Rises, his final Batman film, and Interstellar, which is two hours and 49 minutes long (two hours and four minutes, or 164 minutes).

Long runtimes do not necessarily sway people from Oppenheimer's position. The Way of Water, Wakanda Forever, The Batman, and Spider-Man: No Way Home have all demonstrated that it is possible to enjoy box office success during the pandemic while running for three hours or more. John Wick: Chapter 4 is currently in theaters, and as of this writing, despite its longer running time of two hours and 49 minutes, it had smashed the franchise record for Thursday previews (169 minutes).

The director has a reputation for ambition and for assembling an all-star cast for his most recent endeavor. Cillian Murphy, Emily Blunt, Dennis Quaid, Matt Damon, Robert Downey Jr., Florence Pugh, Gary Oldman, Rami Malek, Kenneth Branagh, and more will all appear in the military drama, which follows the inventor of the atomic bomb.
