Christopher Nolan’s reaction
The same schedule, of course, makes Hollywood film connoisseurs confused about which film they should prioritize. The reason is, Barbie has a very large fan community, while Oppenheimer also makes people impatient to wait with their star-studded cast of players.
According to insider reports, Nolan was “disappointed” by Warner Bros.’ decision to release Barbie the same weekend as Oppenheimer, which was distributed by Universal Pictures.
“Nolan is upset that Warner Bros. scheduled Barbie release on the same weekend as Oppenheimer, especially because mid-July has been known in the industry as ‘Nolan’s weekend’ for years.” wrote Insider, quoted on Friday 14 July 2023.
