I saw the trailer and was thinking "mmmm, a Nolan movie. I bet it lasts forever". Turns out it's the longer movie he'd ever done, lol. Doubt I'll see it, at least in the teather.

I haven't seen this film but for maybe the last week mention of it has surrounded me everywhere I turn, radio, TV, online. I can't tell if that's spontaneous and organic because it's great or if it's just got massive promotional dollars behind it.

It's definitely PR, and good PR, but it's had the whiff of desperation about it - as has BARBIE's enormous push. Nolan, Gerwig, and their films' stars have been heavily promoting EACH OTHER's film, mutually... which is a heartwarming phenomenon, and also obv a nearly unheard of phenomenon.

I got an email from Letterboxd last week w/ a subject heading that read almost exactly as follows: "BARBIE and OPPENHEIMER arrive to save the box office." I thought - really? A three-hour arthouse biopic and a post-modern satire from filmmakers whose previous film was a highly surreal flop? I will see OPPENHEIMER and BARBIE and hope to enjoy both... but I admit I will be a little surprised if either film "saves the box office".

If either or both do somehow transform theatrical releasing in a positive way... well, it will be a story...

I wont see BARBIE for any reason. OPPENHIEMER I would like to see, but I'll wait until it comes to TV.
I would very much like to see the upcoming the EXORCIST: BELIEVER.

AIP did it in the 50's and 60's all the time. They were released as double bills- and promoted as such in pressbooks, on posters, and in newspapers. Now it's the internet. Same ballyhoo- different medium.

But those movies were distributed by the same company. BARBIE is from Warner Bros. and OPPENHEIMER is from Universal.

I'm impressed.

And relieved for Nolan, after TENET's performance...

I have seen ads locally crowing about these two flicks as a double bill.  Buggedout  The mind boggles.

I also cannot avoid people I know talking a bout these 2 movies... some kind of surreal social brainwashing seems to be under way. (I realise that by posting this comment I am effectively doing it too)

personally I cannot even remember the last time a new movie came out and made me think 'yeah I want/need to see this'...
