Oscar-winning flick Oppenheimer has finally released in Japan, eight months after its global release. While the world cheered for the movie, Japan had been left out of the global screening until now. The Christopher Nolan directorial, however, made its way to the theatres in Japan on Friday, People reported. Reportedly, theatres in Japan featured a warning which said the movie carried images of nuclear tests that could evoke the damage caused by the bombs.
