Christopher Nolan has cooperated with Warner Bros. Pictures for many years, and has successively filmed blockbusters such as the “Dark Knight” trilogy, “Full Start”, and “Interstellar Effect”. parted ways, ended years of cooperation, and collaborated with Universal Pictures to collaborate with the father of the atomic bomb, the biographical film “Oppenheimer”. Recently, Michael DeLuca, CEO of Warner Pictures, was interviewed. Lan cooperated, “We hope Nolan comes back, I think there will be a new world.”
Reports suggest that Warner has sent Nolan 7-figure royalty checks over the past 8 months. Although it is inconvenient to reveal too much content, he should direct the film “Tian Neng” without any additional conditions. Warner Bros. is desperate to get back in touch and repair relations with Nolan. Nolan had once announced that Warner would release his theatrical films in 2020 and 2021 on their own streaming platform HBO Max on release days when the pandemic hit, leaving Nolan furious. He even publicly stated that “filmmakers in our industry, and major film stars, go to bed the night before thinking they are working with the biggest film production company, only To wake up and find out they are working for the worst streaming platform ever.”
Since Nolan believes in cinema, he thought it was unfair for Warner to make such a decision. After “Tian Neng”, the contract between the two parties was terminated and they refused to renew the contract. In the end, he offered extremely high conditions to shoot “Oppenheimer”. Ultimately, Universal Pictures won the bid. It is reported that the terms that Nolan proposed for the feature film at the time included a high budget of US$100 million, complete creative control, and Universal. The release of paintings within 3 weeks of “Oppenheimer”. No other film was allowed to be released. Nolan also boldly stated during the filming period that “the atomic bomb detonation scene would be rendered in a way that was accurate without CGI special effects.” In the end, Universal Pictures agreed to these strict terms before allowing Nolan. Recently, it has been reported that most theaters are backing Nolan, allowing “Oppenheimer” to almost completely monopolize all IMAX big screens. While filming “Chapter One”, actor Tom Cruise was understandably disgruntled by the move, but the news has not been confirmed.
