Oppenheimer Beats Multiverse of Madness Global Run

“Oppenheimer” has surpassed “Multiverse of Madness” as the 7th highest-grossing film post-Covid globally.

The film’s international cumulative total reached 630.2 million after a new rerelease in several markets.

With a US cumulative total of $328.1 million, the global cumulative stands at $958.3 million, surpassing surpassing Multiverse of Madness’ $955.8 million run.

Additional re-releases and expansions are planned, possibly in response to the Oscars race and potential wins.

A controversial release in Japan in March 2021 could contribute to the film’s success, possibly pushing it to or near the $1 billion mark.

If “Oppenheimer” crosses the $1 billion mark, Universal will become the first studio to achieve this milestone three times post-Covid.

“Oppenheimer” dominates the Oscar nominations with 13 nods, including Best Picture, Best Director for Christopher Nolan, and Best Lead Actor for Cillian Murphy.

Other Best Picture nominees include “American Fiction,” “Anatomy of a Fall,” “Barbie,” “The Holdovers,” “Killers of the Flower Moon,” “Maestro,” “Past Lives,” “Poor Things,” and “The Zone of Interest.”

“Oppenheimer” leads with 13 nominations, followed by “Poor Things” with 11 and “Killers of the Flower Moon” with 10.

Christopher Nolan in a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter talked about Oscar nominee Robert Downey Jr. acting in ‘Openheimer’, stating,

“He’s one of our great actors and though a generation of kids know what a great movie star he is (Iron Man), they have not seen his subtlety and brilliance.”

Chasing $1 billion mark at the global box office and double digits of Oscars awards, the Cillian Murphy-led biopic drama has certainly lived upto or, for some, exceeded the expectations.
