At long last, you’ll be able to watch “Oppenheimer” at home. Christopher Nolan’s blockbuster drama will arrive on Digital, 4K Blu-ray, Blu-ray and DVD just in time for the holidays on Nov. 21. The Universal Pictures Home Entertainment release boasts over three hours of bonus features that dive into the making of Nolan’s film, including a featurette on the invention of 65mm black-and-white film stock.

Nolan’s epic opened in July and was an immediate success, going on to gross over $940 million worldwide – a stunning feat for a three-hour drama about the invention of the atomic bomb. Cillian Murphy drew raves for his performance as J. Robert Oppenheimer, but the entire cast – which includes Robert Downey Jr., Emily Blunt, Florence Pugh and Matt Damon – was lauded. “Oppenheimer” is expected to be a major play on the upcoming awards circuit.
