<p>How Nolan made over 800 crore rupees for Oppenheimer</p>
<p>At the worldwide box office, Oppenheimer, a historical drama based on the life of nuclear scientist J Robert Oppenheimer, is slowly approaching $1 billion (about Rs. 8200 crore). It has already made $958 million (around Rs. 7950 crore). Variety claims that Nolan received just under $100 million (about Rs. 820 crore) in compensation for the movie, which includes salary, backend income, box office escalators, and a bonus for winning his twin Academy Awards. As a result, Nolan is now the highest-paid filmmaker globally.</p>
<p>Christopher Nolan’s transition from Oppenheimer to The Following</p>
<p>The Following, an indie film released in 1998, marked Nolan’s debut as a director. Despite having a meager budget of about $6000 (about Rs 2.5 lakh in those days), the crime thriller was somewhat successful, grossing over $125,000 (about Rs 50 lakh) at the movie office. Nolan’s highly praised films Memento, Insomnia, and Prestige were released after this, along with the hugely popular Dark Knight trilogy. Eight of his most recent films, including Oppenheimer, Interstellar, Tenet, Dunkirk, and Inception, have been successes or blockbusters and have theoretically broken the Rs 1000-crore mark at the box office.</p>
