'Oppenheimer's Japan Box Office Brings the Film Close to $1 Billion

Oppenheimer opens to a great response in Japan, making $2.5 million in its opening weekend, bringing the global box office total above $967 million. 

Despite failing to reach $1 billion, Oppenheimer is Nolan's third-highest grossing film. The picture won the director his first Oscar.

Director Nolan justified his creative decisions surrounding the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombings, emphasizing Oppenheimer's point of view.

Nearly nine months after its global release and seven Academy Awards, filmmaker Christopher Nolan's Oppenheimer debuted this weekend in Japan, among trigger warnings. 

It was an occasion distinguished by an understandable and appropriate gravity, given the film's subject matter 

and Japan's significance in the life narrative of theoretical physicist J. Robert Oppenheimer, widely recognized as the "father of the atomic bomb." 

However, in a hopeful development, Oppenheimer had a positive critical and commercial reaction in Japan. 

The film's release was postponed out of respect for the country's people, who are still affected by the tragic events described in it.
