No cut scenes in Oppenheimer!
While some fans have been waiting for Oppenheimer’s DVD release to rave about the potential deleted scenes, it’s been officially announced that there aren’t any.. It was the main actor of the film, Cillian Murphy, who announced this information in an interview for Collider:
There are no deleted scenes in Chris Nolan’s movies. That’s why there are no extras on the DVDs of his movies, because the script is the movie. He knows exactly what’s going to happen – he’s not editing it to change history. It’s the movie.
In other words, Christopher Nolan knows exactly what he wants once his feature film script is written. There is therefore no opportunity to have the slightest deleted scene in the DVD bonuses.
I tend to try to eliminate things on paper because it’s incredibly expensive to shoot things that won’t be in the film. It also takes a lot of time and energy. In most of my films, there are very few deleted scenes, which always disappoints DVD lovers.
