Christopher Nolan's preferred format is raking in the dough.

The Big Picture Oppenheimer, the R-rated three-hour drama about scientists in suits talking about physics in stuffy rooms, has somehow managed to conquer the American cinematic landscape this season. That the director is Christopher Nolan is undoubtedly a big help, but the most staggering numbers from this film's immense box office return have come from IMAX, the premium large screen format which the director has championed for well over a decade now.

The film continues to sell out theaters across not just the United States, but the rest of the world, which led to the film's run in theaters being extended as long as feasibly possible in order to keep up with the demand. Oppenheimer still has exclusive play on 70mm screens until September 1, when it must give them up, contractually, to Denzel Washington's The Equalizer 3, while it will share IMAX screens with Blue Beetle and Gran Turismo once those films open.
