The Current War is finally releasing on the 4th October.

The movie had actually premiered at the Toronto film festival in 2017 but got delayed because of the Harvey Weinstein scandal.

If you don’t already know, let us drop a few names: Edison, Tesla, Benedict Cumberbatch, Nicholas Hoult… you get the gist.

The movie is about the brilliant inventors Thomas Edison and Nikola Tesla engaging in vicious tactics to determine whether the AC or the DC technology will bring electricity to the world at large.

This was the period in the history of science commonly referred to as “war of currents”.

The trailer gives us tantalizing flashes of the nasty scene that ensued at the time. Watch it here.
