‘The Current War’ Coming This Fall

From Director Alfonso Gomez-Rejon (American Horror Story: Coven TV series) comes an exciting new dramatic thriller called The Current War. The film has a stellar cast, including Avengers: Endgame’s (2019) Tom Holland and Benedict Cumberbatch, Nicholas Hoult (X-Men franchise, Warm Bodies 2013), Katherine Waterson (Alien: Covenant 2017 – read our review here), and Matthew Macfadyen (Pride & Prejudice 2005). The Current War opens in select theaters on October 4, 2019, and everywhere else on October 11, 2019.


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.
