You may watch below the first official trailer of The Current War, the upcoming electrifying biography drama movie directed by Alfonso Gomez-Rejon and starring Benedict Cumberbatch, Michael Shannon, Nicholas Hoult, Tom Holland, Katherine Waterston, Matthew Macfadyen, and Tuppence Middleton:
THE CURRENT WAR
The inventor. The Businessman.
This Fall only one can light the way.
“Starring Benedict Cumberbatch as Thomas Edison and Michael Shannon as George Westinghouse, THE CURRENT WAR is the epic story of the cutthroat competition between the greatest inventors of the industrial age over whose electrical system would power the new century. Backed by J.P. Morgan, Edison dazzles the world by lighting Manhattan. But Westinghouse, aided by Nikola Tesla, has seen fatal flaws in Edison’s direct current design. Igniting a war of currents, Westinghouse and Tesla bet everything on risky and dangerous alternating current.”
So do you side with Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) or with Zod (Michael Shannon) and Beast (Nicholas Hoult)? lol!
The release date of the movie The Current War is set to:
– in select theaters: November 24, 2017;
– wide release: January 19, 2017.
Stay tuned for updates!
Maybe well done, but he doesn’t look anything like Edison? Spencer Tracy gave another strong performance as the inventor in the 1940 bio by MGM
