Oppenheimer Cast Walks Out of London Premiere in Solidarity With SAG-AFTRA Strike, Leaving Christopher Nolan to Intro the Movie

SAG-AFTRA has just called a strike that will begin at midnight tonight, but the cast of Christopher Nolan‘s Oppenheimer is getting a jump start on things, as numerous stars left the film’s London premiere in solidarity with the guild.

Cillian Murphy, Matt Damon, Emily Blunt, Florence Pugh, Rami Malek, and Robert Downey Jr. were among the actors who posed for photos on the red carpet, only to leave the premiere as news of the impending strike circulated.

That left Nolan to introduce the movie — which is getting rave reviews — and he joked that his cast was “off to grab their picket signs,” as they “want fair wages for working members of their union.”

Oppenheimer will open in U.S. theaters — including IMAX, much to Tom Cruise‘s chagrin — on July 21, and though it’s poised to lose its box office battle against Barbie, I have a feeling it will ultimately win the war when the dust settles.
