Watch Benedict Cumberbatch in New Trailer for The Current War

-

101 Studios has released a brand new trailer for the upcoming film The Current War. You can check it out in the player below. The film will hit theaters in limited release on October 4, and open wide on October 11. It was directed by Alfonso Gomez-Rejon (Me and Earl and the Dying Girl) and written by Michael Mitnick.

The cast includes Benedict Cumberbatch, Michael Shannon, Katherine Waterston, Tom Holland, Tuppence Middleton, Matthew Macfadyen and Nicholas Hoult.

Three brilliant visionaries set off in a charged battle for the future in The Current War, the epic story of the cutthroat competition that literally lit up the modern world. Benedict Cumberbatch is Thomas Edison, the celebrity inventor on the verge of bringing electricity to Manhattan with his radical new DC technology. On the eve of triumph, his plans are upended by charismatic businessman George Westinghouse (Michael Shannon), who believes he and his partner, the upstart genius Nikolai Tesla (Nicholas Hoult), have a superior idea for how to rapidly electrify America: with AC current. As Edison and Westinghouse grapple for who will power the nation, they spark one of the first and greatest corporate feuds in American history, establishing for future Titans of Industry the need to break all the rules.

The Current War produced by Timur Bekmambetov and Basil Iwanyk, and executive produced by Martin Scorsese.
