IRON MAN Actor Robert Downey Jr. Calls OPPENHEIMER The Best Movie He's Ever Been In IRON MAN Actor Robert Downey Jr. Calls OPPENHEIMER The Best Movie He's Ever Been In

At the U.K. premiere for Christopher Nolan's Oppenheimer, Robert Downey Jr. had high praise for the film...moments before the entire cast walked out.

Robert Downey Jr. has been in some pretty big films during his career, including Avengers: Endgame, which grossed $2.799 billion at the worldwide box office.

However, he views his current release, Oppenheimer- a biographical thriller about the development of the first nuclear weapons as part of the Manhattan Project, as the best film in his career.

Said Downey to the crowd at the premiere, "I'm just going to flat out say it, this is the best film I’ve ever been in, and I cannot wait for you all to experience it." You can check out the full red carpet segment below.

Of course, this occurred before the SAG-AFTRA strike became official. Downey, along with Nolan and the rest of his co-stars all walked out of the premiere before the final credits rolled.

Under the terms of the strike, actors are not permitted to take part in the promotion of any past, current or future film releases.

Going all the way back to his Weird Science days, Downey Jr. has been in some heavily-celebrated films so it will certainly be interesting to see whether the general audience agrees with the Iron Man actor's assertion.

Do you plan to see Oppenheimer in theaters? Let us know in the comment section below.

TheVisionary25 - 7/15/2023, 1:34 PM
I’m really excited to see it!!.

Nolan’s last few films or so have left me cold to various extents but there’s no denying the man is at the height of his technical abilities so it should atleast be a hell of a cinematic experience if nothing else.

Plus I’m just so happy to see Cillian Murphy finally as the lead of a Nolan film , he deserves it imo.
