With unprecedented access to France, Russia, and the United States’ nuclear industry, Nuclear Now envisions a world where nuclear energy triumphs over climate change and energy poverty. Beneath our feet, Uranium atoms hold an incredible energy reserve, unlocked during the mid-20th century for bombs and submarines. As societies transitioned from fossil fuels to nuclear power, a long-term PR campaign, funded by coal and oil, aimed to sow public fear of harmless low-level radiation and blur the line between nuclear weapons and energy. Oliver Stone reminds us that knowledge conquers fear, and our human ingenuity can tackle the climate crisis.


“This is the most informative film ever.”

The New York Times
“The film’s aversion to formal or rhetorical bombast as it discusses scientists’ hopes for a better future is its own balm. We’re staring down catastrophe, Stone explains matter-of-factly, but our greatest tool is already in our grasp.”
Brandon Yu

Spectrum Culture
“Nuclear Now’s most compelling and eye-opening moments are front-loaded in the film, as Stone shares this history and debunks the various arguments against this zero-emission energy.”
Josh Goller
