Oppenheimerthe new film directed by Christopher Nolan, is available in theaters from Thursday, July 20. The historical production focuses on the figure of J. Robert Oppenheimer (Cillian Murphy)physicist who was key in the creation of the first nuclear weapons and considered the father of the atomic bomb.
The feature film is succeeding at the box office, as well as being the focus of many memes for coinciding with the release of Barbie. Not everything is praise for the drama on social networks, where some of his mistakes have gone viral.
Andy Craig went up to Twitter an image of the tape in which you can see Oppenheimer giving a speech He is surrounded by elated people waving small American flags. “It was good and all, but I’ll be that guy and complain that they used 50 star flags in a scene set in 1945″, wrote the aforementioned user in a publication that has more than 3,300 retweets.
Each star on the flag represents a state in the United States. The problem is in the number, since in 1945 it could only have 48 stars. The 49th state was Alaska, which joined the country in 1959, and the 50th was Hawaii, which joined in 1960.
the mistake of Oppenheimer with the flags led a Dutch tweeter to share another inaccuracy from the film by Nolan. This second failure has to do with the language spoken by the protagonist.
