THE CURRENT WAR
Starring Benedict Cumberbatch as Thomas Edison and Michael Shannon as George Westinghouse, THE CURRENT WAR tells the story of two powerful moguls battling over the supply of electricity in the late 1880s. Edison is on the verge of creating a marketable and sustainable electricity system for the first time in history, when Westinghouse notices a grand weakness in Edison’s design and ignites a war of currents between these two rivals. Directed by Alfonso Gomez‐Rejon (Me and Earl and the Dying Girl) and written by Michael Mitnick (The Giver), THE CURRENT WAR also stars Katherine Waterston, Nicholas Hoult, Tom Holland, Matthew Macfadyen, and Tuppence Middleton.
