During an interview with Josh Horowitz for the podcast Happy Sad Confused, Peele revealed his sentiments about the upcoming movie.

I don’t work for the film, I don’t have a contract or anything. All I can say is, I am so envious I didn’t get to be on set for this production. The talent is incredible. The images, I have seen a couple of images from it that just look so beautiful. It’s going to be a real… It’s what I’m most excited for next year.”

Cinematographer Hoyte Van Hoytema did not want to reveal anything about the movie when asked by the host.

The thing is, it is really hard for me to talk about this film because we simply haven’t really sort of all together agreed what we can say and what we want to say.”

From the official trailer alone, fans could already feel the tension and grit that enveloped the story. The explosions were real, according to director Christopher Nolan, who also revealed that they recreated the Trinity test or the first detonation of a nuclear weapon.

It’s one of the most challenging projects I’ve ever taken on in terms of the scale of it, and in terms of encountering the breadth of Oppenheimer’s story. There were big, logistical challenges, big practical challenges. But I had an extraordinary crew, and they really stepped up. It will be a while before we’re finished. But certainly, as I watch the results come in, and as I’m putting the film together, I’m thrilled with what my team has been able to achieve.”

Most films use CGI to safely recreate exploding visual effects, but for Nolan’s nuclear biopic, they took the risk in order to make the explosion appear realistic.
