‘Oppenheimer’ Gets Peacock Streaming Release Date

“Oppenheimer” is coming soon to NBCUniversal’s Peacock, allowing viewers to experience the three-hour historical epic from the comfort of their own homes.

Christopher Nolan’s award-winning blockbuster will stream on Peacock beginning on Feb. 16, several months after its July 21, 2023, theatrical release.

The Cillian Murphy-led drama chronicles the story of the father of the atomic bomb, from his days as a physics student to his experience serving as director of the Manhattan Project to his 1954 security hearing. Matt Damon plays Manhattan Project director Leslie Groves Jr., Emily Blunt plays Katherine “Kitty” Oppenheimer and Robert Downey Jr. plays Lewis Strauss, a founding commissioner of the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission. The supporting cast is comprised of Florence Pugh, Benny Safdie, Michael Angarano, Josh Hartnett, Rami Malek, Casey Affleck and many more.

As one half of this summer’s “Barbenheimer” box office sensation, “Oppenheimer” grossed $950 million globally. Reflecting on the film’s box office success, Nolan told Variety, “It’s clear from the box office that audiences are looking for things they haven’t seen before. We’ve been through a period where it was wonderfully reassuring for studio executives to feel that their franchise properties could go on forever and be predictably successful. But you can’t deny filmgoers’ desire for novelty.”

Although the film became the highest-grossing biopic in history, Nolan would hesitate to categorize “Oppenheimer” that way: “It’s not a useful genre. I love working in useful genres. In this film…it’s the heist film as it applies to the Manhattan Project and the courtroom drama as it applies to the security hearings. It’s very useful to look at the conventions of those genres and how they can pull the audience and how they can give me communication with the audience.”
