Downey’s latest movie, Oppenheimer has been one that has gotten him some of the highest praise he has heard. His work alongside that of Cillian Murphy, Emily Blunt, and Matt Damon was one that many came to acknowledge. Not only was the movie hyped much before its release, but even after it came to the theatres, fans just could not stop talking about it.

Robert Downey Jr.’s Movie Surpasses Dwayne Johnson’s Film

Robert Downey Jr.‘s Oppenheimer is still running in theatres even after months have gone by since its release. According to Twitter user Luiz Fernando (@Luiz_Fernando_J), its tenth Friday just saw a minute difference of -31.8% from the previous week, the film’s stats have never looked better. The film also happens to have performed better than Dwayne Johnson’s Jumanji: The Next Level, replacing it to become the 86th highest-grossing movie of all time.

Johnson’s movie made a box office record of $801 Million, something that was later broken by Christopher Nolan’s movie. Currently, the film has earned a whopping $916 Million worldwide (via Box Office Mojo). This number could very well increase in the near future, perhaps even surpassing the $1 Billion mark. Although that is only something fans could hope for, breaking such a record is no small achievement. The movie gained a lot of attention not only because of the star cast but also because of the heavy-hitting performances. The storytelling and directing were on another level as well, easily making it one of Nolan’s best works to date.

Oppenheimer is the Highest Grossing Biopic

Not only has Oppenheimer officially surpassed Jumanji: The Next Level, but it is also the highest-grossing biopic of all time. Even after being in theatres for so long and being taken down from 350 cinema halls across the United States, there hasn’t been a major decline in the viewership of the movie.
