With the Oscars fast approaching, streamers are steadily adding nominated films to their platforms, and we are here for it. Nominated for 13 Oscars, Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer will be available to stream on February 16 on Peacock. Oppenheimer follows the story of physicist J. Robert Oppenheimer (played by Cillian Murphy), who was appointed to work on the top-secret Manhattan Project during World War II. Oppenheimer and a team of scientists spent years developing and designing the atomic bomb, to find their work has come to fruition on July 16, 1945 (Trinity), as they witness the world’s first nuclear explosion, forever changing the course of history. Nolan’s other features will be made available on the streamer earlier on the first of the month, including his debut film, Memento, and the award-winning Dunkirk.
Other than that, highly-anticipated series are also coming out in February. The latest adaptation of Mr. and Mrs. Smith will hit Prime Video, starring Donald Glover and Maya Erskine in the first season of the romantic action drama.
