Christopher Nolan Recreates Nuclear Explosion Without CGI For New Movie | Christopher Nolan

Christopher Nolan has talked about the challenges of showing a nuclear explosion without resorting to computer-generated imagery for his new movie, Oppenheimer.

“Recreating the Trinity Test without the use of computer graphics was quite a challenge to tackle,” Nolan told Total Film.

“Andrew Jackson — my visual effects supervisor, who got me on board early on — was looking at how to do a lot of the visual elements of the film in practice, from representing quantum dynamics and quantum physics to the Trinity test itself… there were huge practical challenges. “.

Nolan has long been a pioneer in ambitious art filmmaking, while also rocking real-life thrillers on a grand scale. He blows up a real Boeing 747 for 2020 Tenet, flips a truck for The Dark Knight and shoots Thaw in Interstellar.

Oppenheimer stars Cillian Murphy alongside Emily Blunt, Matt Damon, Robert Downey Jr., Florence Bowe, Rami Malek and Josh Hartnett. The movie will be released in July.
