The first trailer for Alfonso Gomez-Rejon’s historical drama ‘The Current War’ is out and it looks interesting. The story dives into a deep challenge over the future of electrical power in the United States in the late 1800s.
The film stars Benedict Cumberbatch as Edison, Michael Shannon as Westinghouse, Nicholas Hoult as Tesla and Tom Holland.
At the start of the trailer itself we see Edison standing in the middle of a field surrounded by light bulbs. The film is about the so-called War of Currents, an electrical arms race that played out in the late 1880s between inventor Thomas Edison who waged a corporate war against a rival electrical company run by George Westinghouse.
