The makers of “The Current War” starring Benedict Cumberbatch, Michael Shannon, Nicholas Hoult, Tom Holland, Katherine Waterston, Simon Manyonda, and Tuppence Middleton are out with a new trailer and release date of the film.
The film premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival on September 9, 2017. Originally to be distributed by The Weinstein Company in November 2017, the film was shelved and sold off following the Harvey Weinstein sexual abuse allegations.
It was eventually bought by Lantern Entertainment (the successor of TWC), who then sold the domestic distribution rights to 101 Studios.
In October 2018, Lantern Entertainment, which acquired The Weinstein Company’s assets through its bankruptcy, and 13 Films, an international distribution and finance company, struck a deal to co-distribute the film internationally. In April 2019, it was announced 101 Studios had acquired distribution rights to the film for 3 million, and committed to a wide release.
The film presents the story of the “war of the currents” between electricity titans Thomas Edison and George Westinghouse which determined whose electrical system would power the modern world.
The film is an American historical drama film directed by Alfonso Gomez-Rejon and written by Michael Mitnick. Martin Scorsese serves as an executive producer on the film.
It is scheduled to be released on October 4, 2019, in the US.
