This is The Current War Movie You’ve Never Heard Of

The next film on the list of popular movies doesn’t have to be from a massive franchise. It could be The Current War, a historical drama about energy mughals Thomas Edison and George Westinghouse. But fear not, those who know about the “war of the currents”, Nikola Tesla can be seen as well.

The Current War takes a moment in history that is paramount to our life today, but few know much about. Thomas Edison, played by Benedict Cumberbatch, battles with George Westinghouse, Michael Shannon, for control over the power of the future. These titans of industry stand in the world of gas powered devices, about to launch the world into the new era of electrics.

The Current War has been shown at a number of film festivals and is slated for release at some point in 2018. This tenacious story will soon bring a little known piece of history into the spotlight.
