Although Christopher Nolan is known for making high-concept movies that blend action and science fiction, his most recent movie is solidly founded on actual historical events. Oppenheimer is a dramatization of J. Robert Oppenheimer’s (played by Cillian Murphy) life and career. Oppenheimer is widely acknowledged as the creator of the atomic bomb.
Oppenheimer is essentially the account of one of the riskiest project management situations in recorded history. Numerous other real-life scientists, including Albert Einstein, Niels Bohr, Edward Teller, and Richard Feynman, as well as military and government figures, including Leslie Groves and Harry S. Truman, are also portrayed in the movie, which follows J. Robert Oppenheimer as he leads the Manhattan Project and the development of the world’s first atomic bombs.
Oppenheimer doesn’t have any scenes after the film’s closing credits. Given that this is a historical drama rather than an action-packed blockbuster, this isn’t at all surprising. Not to mention the fact that, despite directing the Dark Knight trilogy, Nolan has never really been a fan of post-credits scenes. Additionally, Oppenheimer has plenty of time to convey its story with a three-hour duration.
The film fades to black and the credits only appear after the story has concluded because there are no mid-credit or post-credit scenes in it. There is no need for more material after the credits because the concluding sequence is powerful enough to leave the audience with a lot to think about.
This feature is common in every Christopher Nolan movie. Post-credits scenes are absent from his movies. Even after Marvel pioneered and popularized the tradition of post-credit and mid-credit scenes, Nolan resisted adopting it even for his Dark Knight trilogy.
