Oppenheimer, which follows physicist J Robert Oppenheimer's work and life, is a biopic set during the Second World War. Robert Oppenheimer helped invent nuclear weapons during that time. He was known as the Father of the Atomic Bomb. The film is set during a period in history when he understood that testing the atomic bomb would destroy the world but that didn't stop him from pushing the button.

According to an AFP report, Oppenheimer earned $80.5 million in revenue in North American box offices while Barbie raked in $155 million.

Together, they also provided a shot in the arm for theatres hit hard by the pandemic as well as the rise of streaming services.
