The Current War
Three brilliant visionaries set off in a charged battle for the future in The Current War, the epic story of the cut throat 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, who believes he and his partner, the upstart genius Nikolai Tesla, 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.
American historical drama film that depicts the “war of the currents” between Thomas Edison and George Westinghouse. Directed by Alfonso Gomez-Rejon and written by Michael Mitnick, the film stars Benedict Cumberbatch as Edison, Michael Shannon as Westinghouse, and Nicholas Hoult as Nikola Tesla, alongside Tom Holland, Katherine Waterston, Tuppence Middleton, and Matthew Macfadyen. Martin Scorsese also serves as an executive producer.
