Oppenheimer features 'prolonged full nudity' between Cillian Murphy and Florence Pugh

Thursday 21 July, the major movie day of the year. The day both Barbie and Oppenheimer land on our screens.

And apparently, the day we get an eyeful of both Cillian Murphy and Florence Pugh.

Christopher Nolan’s upcoming movie tells the story of American scientist J. Robert Oppenheimer and his role in developing the atomic bomb.

One of the most anticipated movies this summer, a lot of its content has been kept under wraps.

Murphy plays the titular Oppenheimer, who is often titled as the ‘father of the atomic bomb’ and Black Widow’s Pugh plays his ex-fiancée.

The Peaky Blinders actor is tied up in the secrecy around the blockbuster and has ‘strict instructions’ to keep it that way.

However, he did spill some tea on the movie to The Guardian, a movie he says is ‘sometimes like a thriller, sometimes like a horror’.

Unsurprisingly, there is already a load of Oscar worthy chat for his performance in the film.

And not only a 'thrilling' kind of film, Nolan previously told Wired: “The love of the characters, the love of the relationships, is as strong as I’ve ever done.”

The Guardian included in their interview with Murphy that Oppenheimer will feature ‘prolonged full nudity’ between the star and Pugh.

Plus, there will be sex and ‘complicated’ scenes with Emily Blunt, who plays Oppenheimer’s wife, that ‘were pretty heavy’.

But the lead actor admitted: “I’m under strict instructions not to give away anything.”

Although, he did open up about ‘chemistry tests’ which seems to nod to his working with the two women.

“They put two actors in a room to see if there’s any spark, and have all the producers and director at a table watching,” he said.

“I don’t know what metric they use, and it seems so outrageously silly, but sometimes you get a chemistry and nobody knows why.”

Murphy also warned the film is going to ‘knock people out’ with how ‘provocative and powerful’ it is.

“What [Nolan] does with film, it f**ks you up a little bit,” the actor said.

After watching him play Tommy Shelby in Peaky Blinders for nearly 10 years, we’ve grown use to seeing the Irish man appearing on screen smoking cigarettes – and we’ll be seeing the same from Oppenheimer too.

The scientist consumed little else than Chesterfield cigarettes and martinis, before he died of cancer in 1967.

And Murphy said: “I’ve smoked so many fake cigarettes for Peaky and this. My next character will not be a smoker. They can’t be good for you. Even herbal cigarettes have health warnings now.”
