Christopher Nolan is one of the most outstanding directors of this generation and he is returning to the big screen once again after 5 years with the 2017 war film Dunkirk. Just as his last film, this time it will be a little different too. Nolan, who is best known for his science fiction films like Memento, Inception and Interstellar, will be venturing into a genre that he has never touched before: a biopic.

The film is titled Oppenheimer after J. Robert Oppenheimer, the theoretical physicist who is credited with being the "father of the atomic bomb" for his role in the Manhattan Project—the World War II undertaking that developed the first nuclear weapons. The film will follow his life and his works and contributions in his field of work through which he made a name for himself. After releasing the character's look in the film, the makers have now dropped the official first look poster of the film. Check it out:
