I'd 1st check you can turn the engine over by hand with a socket on the crank pulley

if you can't then its likely to be terminal

you can investigate further by removing the spark plugs to see if this helps and also remove the sump to check the oil pump is still turning with the engine and don' t have a broken chain or a snapped off oil pickup pipe

let me know what you find
