In late 2017, actor Benedict Cumberbatch was set to reprise his American accent from Doctor Strange in The Current War, a historic drama akin to his Oscar-nominated flip in The Imitation Game. The “current” of the movie’s title, in fact, was a cheeky reference to the “war of the currents” that raged between Thomas Edison (Cumberbatch), George Westinghouse (Michael Shannon), and Nikola Tesla (Nicholas Hoult) within the late 19th century. Two years later, a brand new trailer has dropped for the movie, as a result of it hasn’t even been launched but.
That’s as a result of The Current War, which additionally stars Cumberbatch’s Marvel Cinematic Universe colleague Tom Holland, was delayed indefinitely due to the Harvey Weinstein scandal. The Weinstein Company was set to distribute the movie in yet one more certainly one of its Oscar rushes on the time. Alas, that distinction now falls to 101 Studios. (You can learn extra in regards to the film’s storied manufacturing historical past over at Deadline.)
Per the film’s temporary blurb on YouTube:
Edison. Westinghouse. Tesla. Three sensible visionaries set off in a charged battle for the longer term in The Current War, the epic story of the cutthroat competitors that actually lit up the trendy world.
The Current War is now set to debut in choose theaters on October 4th, with a large launch coming just a few days afterward October 11th. And judging by the brand new trailer’s emphasis on Cumberbatch and Holland particularly, it’s wager that the brand new distributors are hoping for at the least some bump from the actors’ Marvel recognition.
