The clips shared show Cillian Murphy as the titular character Oppenheimer, but it looks like he used a Snapchat filter to enlarge his chin and mouth.

The location of the opening sequence meant that Haywood viewed the film from an angle known as “watching a film in a funhouse mirror for [three] an hour.”
