Oppenheimer: How to Watch the Oscar-Nominated Film Online

Oppenheimer, the Oscar-nominated biopic starring Cillian Murphy, hits streaming on Friday, Feb. 16. Here’s where to watch the Christopher Nolan film online.

Per the official description, the film “propels audiences into the paradox of the enigmatic man who must risk destroying the world in order to save it. With America locked in a devastating war, physicist J. Robert Oppenheimer (Murphy) becomes the central figure in a pulse-pounding race against the Nazis to develop the first atomic bomb.” The film also stars Emily Blunt, Matt Damon, Robert Downey Jr., Florence Pugh, Josh Hartnett, Casey Affleck, Rami Malek and Kenneth Branagh.
