Now if we talk about Oppenheimer, the movie stars the brilliant Murphy which showed how his life evolved around the creation of the atomic bomb. He created it for the Manhattan Project.

It took no time and just when the weekend reached, the movie gained massive love and money. However, in comparison, Barbie had more fan following and made more money as compared to Oppenheimer and hence it was the reason that Oppenheimer was the second-highest movie rated in terms of a hit on the box office.
