Emily Blunt and Cillian Murphy looked deep in conversation on the set of their upcoming film Oppenheimer in Los Angeles on Thursday.
Emily, 39, looked chic in a period-appropriate navy blazer and coordinating pencil skirt teamed with UGG boots, whilst Cillian, 45, sported a charcoal suit as they took a walk around set during a break from shooting.
The film tells the story of theoretical physicist J. Robert Oppenheimer and his contributions that lead to the creation of the atomic bomb.

Cillian will be taking on the lead role whilst Emily will be starring alongside him as his characters wife, Kitty Oppenheimer.
Emily’s brunette locks were pulled back into a very 1950’s hairstyle as she added a slick of cherry red lipstick to compete her vintage look.

Kitty was born in Germany in 1910 and immigrated to the United States in 1913.
She initially studied music and biology and was married to two other men before marrying Oppenheimer in 1940.
The couple moved to Los Alamos, New Mexico, shortly after the start of World War II to work on the Manhattan Project, which Robert was the director of.
The research group was responsible for creating the first atomic bombs, and the devastating explosives would later be dropped on the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki later in the war.
Shortly after the bombs were detonated in Hiroshima and Nagasaki Oppenheimer began to lobby for the control of nuclear weapons to avert a nuclear war with Russia.
He was appointed the chairman of the Atomic Energy Commission though he was also a target of the House Un-American Activities Commission as well.
Oppenheimer passed away in 1967 at 62 years of age from throat cancer after years of smoking cigarettes.

Oppenheimer, which reportedly has a budget of $100million, is directed by Christopher Nolan.
Cillian has cultivated a long relationship with Nolan, who tends to work with many of his supporting actors repeatedly.
The two first worked together on 2005’s Batman Begins, and Murphy appeared in its sequels The Dark Knight and The Dark Night Rises, along with Inception and Dunkirk.
Having started production in late February, Nolan is expected to take more than five months to shoot, which if he keeps on schedule it would go until the beginning of August.
Oppenheimer is the first film to shoot in IMAX black-and-white analog photography, although its not known whether it will be done entirely in black and white

Oppenheimer will feature an incredible all-star cast including that also features Kenneth Branagh, Matt Damon, Gary Oldman, Rami Malek, Josh Hartnett and many more.
Damon plays Lieutenant General Leslie Richard Groves Jr, a United States Army Corps of Engineers officer who oversaw the construction of the Pentagon and directed the Manhattan Project.
Hartnett portrays Ernest Lawrence, who’s among the scientists who worked on the Manhattan Project,
The pioneering American nuclear physicist won the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1939 for his invention of the cyclotron, which is a particle accelerator.
Lawrence would go on to be recognized for his work on uranium-isotope separation for the Manhattan Project.
Josh Peck plays American physicist Kenneth Bainbridge, the director of the Manhattan Project’s Trinity nuclear test during the development of the first atomic weapons.
It’s being adapted adapted from the 2006 book American Prometheus: The Triumph And Tragedy Of J. Robert Oppenheimer, by Kai Bird and Martin J. Sherwin.
The book, which won the Pulitzer Prize, details Oppenheimer’s personal life and his time leading the Manhattan Project in the early and mid-1940s.
Oppenheimer is set to be released on July 21, 2023, by Universal Pictures.
The current debut date is slated to come about two weeks before the harrowing anniversaries of the atomic bombs that were dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, which happened on August 6 and August 9 in 1945.
