Preview, Cumberbatch and Shannon, as Edison and Westinghouse, go at it in “The Current War”

Got to love the pun in the title.

And are there two more intense actors working today than Benedict Cumberbatch and Michael Shannon?

“The Current War” is about the war between Edison and Westinghouse, between AC and DC.

With Nicholas Hoult as Tesla, Matthew MacFadyen as  J.P. Morgan and Tom Holland as Charles Insull, this may be one we have to catch on Amazon Prime or Netflix. Theatrical? Not every period piece, not every movie distributed by this studio, gets a a substantial theatrical release. Started life as a Weinstein project, now it’s with eOne. Not exactly limbo.

But worth posting in the hopes that it’ll see the light of day.

    I previewed this film on 10 July 2017, and it was supposed to be released 22 December 2017. This was one of the films I most looking forward to in 2017. Now with the Weinstein issues it will buried far away. It will meet the same fate as Wind River – at least regarding any substantial awards.
