Cillian Murphy confirms Oppenheimer has no deleted scenes
Perfectionist director Christopher Nolan followed the Oppenheimer script to the T and as a result, there are no ‘deleted scenes’ to watch out for.
Murphy, who played American theoretical physicist J Robert Oppenheimer in the Christopher Nolan-directed movie, said Nolan's films don't have extra footage.
"There's no deleted scenes in Chris Nolan movies that's why there are no DVD extras,” Murphy told Collider.
He said Oppenheimer is no exception.
"The script is the movie. He knows exactly what’s going to end up. He’s not fiddling around with it trying to change the story. That is the movie," the actor said.
In 2012, Nolan had also spoken about the lack of extra footage in his movies.
"I tend to try and weed things out on paper because it’s crazy expensive to shoot things that aren’t going to be in the film. It also takes up a lot of time and energy. Pretty much with all my films, there are very few deleted scenes, which always disappoints the DVD crowd," he had told MTV.
Oppenheimer has made $552.9 million worldwide since its release three weeks ago, according to US media reports.
The Hindustan Times review for the film read: “Nolan’s latest is about the man (played by a bravura Cillian Murphy), who changed the course of human history, and his complicated relationship with his own legacy. It’s an effective ‘biopic’ to the extent that it refuses to blandly blaze through bullet points and rattle off a set of highlights from his life. Instead, it takes you inside his mind. Often quite literally.”
