Benedict Cumberbatch, Michael Shannon and Nicholas Hoult…Who knew electricity could be so damn enticing?
The Current War isn’t just a great pun; it’s the dramatic story of the cutthroat race between electricity titans Thomas Edison (Cumberbatch) and George Westinghouse (Shannon) to determine whose electrical system would power the modern world. It also stars Tom Holland and Katherine Waterston because we apparently we did something to deserve this.
The Current War looks great; very interesting with not just a great cast but a great director in Alfonso Gomez-Rejon, who also directed the stunning 2015 indie Me and Earl and the Dying Girl. Hopefully it’ll be a electrifying experience.
You’re right, I can do better than that.
The Current War will no doubt have the power to light up the box office next year.
Okay, maybe I can’t.
