Benedict Cumberbatch Battles It Out In Trailer For ‘The Current War’

Ever wondered whether competition in science got heated? Well the most British actor ever, Benedict Cumberbatch, is showing off one of the most epic beefs that occurred between two inventors.

Cumberbatch portrays Thomas Edison in The Current War, a film about the battle between Edison’s DC electrical system and Nikola Tesla’s AC system, mostly represented in the film by his colleague George Westinghouse (Michael Shannon). It’s definitely an interesting take on something that hasn’t received much coverage, so check out the trailer above and keep an eye out for the movie on January 4th 2018.
