Barbenheimer: how we're celebrating the Best Day Ever with Barbie and Oppenheimer

Barbenheimer is here and we're not exaggerating when we're describing it as the Best Day Ever. Two wildly contrasting yet utterly unmissable blockbusters, Barbie and Oppenheimer, are on release at Cineworld now to remind you of the magic of the big screen experience.

Barbie pairs Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling for the first-ever live-action Barbie film, directed with colourful verve by Oscar nominee Greta Gerwig.


Oppenheimer is the latest movie from the celebrated filmmaker Christopher Nolan, and it dramatises the birth of the atomic bomb in a spectacular eruption of arresting IMAX-captured visuals.

Even Tom Cruise is championing Barbenheimer

Oppenheimer erupts in majestic IMAX

The sheer expanse and pin-sharp resolution of IMAX embolden Christopher Nolan's fiery vision for Oppenheimer. The movie was, in fact, captured with IMAX cameras and finds its truest expression when projected in the format.

We enlisted the UK's leading film critic Mark Kermode and filmmaker Jack Howard to explain why you need to experience Nolan's latest in breathtaking IMAX.
