Christopher Nolan is one of the most celebrated directors working in the industry. Sources revealed that the director has asked for a $100 million production budget, equal spend on publicity, final cut, 20% of first-dollar gross–which means that he will get 20% of what the film makes at the box office, regardless of whether or not it turns a profit.

He also demanded a three-week blackout before and after the film’s release, where Universal cannot release any other movie and a guaranteed 100-day theatrical run. He is, of course, shooting in his preferred IMAX 65mm and 65mm large-format film.

Oppenheimer will reportedly feature segments filmed in black and white IMAX. The film is slated to release in July 2023–Nolan’s preferred release window.

Movie analytics has concluded that the movie needs to make at least $400 million worldwide to break even.
