New Trailer For Benedict Cumberbatch and Micheal Shannon’s THE CURRENT WAR


101 Studios has recently already contributed a brand new trailer for The Current War, a movie that tells the real story behind the power conflict that happened between Thomas Edison and George Westinghouse.

The movie was supposed to be released again into 2017, but following the The Weinstein Company went bankrupt, and the movie fell into limbo. 101 Studios was shaped and chose up it, so today the movie will actually find the light of day.

The Current War tells the story of Thomas Edison (Benedict Cumberbatch), George Westinghouse (Michael Shannon) and Nikola Tesla (Nicholas Hoult), “3 brilliant visionaries at a cutthroat competition to literally illuminate the world. The movie follows Edison, whose plans of bringing power to Manhattan are upended when Westinghouse and Tesla declare they have a superior idea on how best to rapidly electrify America, sparking one of their first and greatest corporate feuds at U.S. history. ”

This is really a story that has fascinated me for quite a very long time and I’m looking forward to see this movie ends up. The movie was directed by Alfonso Gomez-Rejon (Me and Earl and the Dying Girl) with executive producer Martin Scorsese. It also stars Katherine Waterston, Tom Holland, Matthew Macfadyen and Tuppence Middleton.

The movie opens in theatres on October 4, 2019, and everywhere on October 11, 2019.
