Directed by Alfonso Gomez-Rejon, The Current War is the story of the cutthroat race between electricity titans Thomas Edison and George Westinghouse to determine whose electrical system would power the modern world. Benedict Cumberbatch, Michael Shannon, Nicholas Hoult and Tom Holland star…

I find this trailer somewhat over stylised. Nevertheless, there’s just too much impressive talent involved. And I definitely don’t just mean the actors. I can’t wait to see how people battled for market share back then compared to the tech giants of today.

Ekow Quartey, Tuppence Middleton and Matthew Macfadyen make up additional supporting cast.

The Current War Release Dates: January 19th, 2018 (US)…

Happy Film Loving
