Quote:
The Current War[a] is a 2017 American historical drama film that depicts the "war of the currents" between Thomas Edison and George Westinghouse. Directed by Alfonso Gomez-Rejon and written by Michael Mitnick, the film stars Benedict Cumberbatch as Edison, Michael Shannon as Westinghouse and Nicholas Hoult as Nikola Tesla, alongside Tom Holland, Katherine Waterston, Tuppence Middleton, and Matthew Macfadyen. Martin Scorsese also serves as an executive producer.

Originally announced in May 2012, the film went through several directors before Gomez-Rejon was confirmed in September 2015. Cumberbatch, Shannon and Hoult joined the cast by October 2016, and filming began in England that December. 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. After discovering a final cut privilege clause in Scorsese's contract, Gomez-Rejon convinced him to allow for reshoots and to trim ten minutes off the original version's runtime, resulting in the film that was eventually released into theaters. The film is scheduled to be released in the United States on October 25, 2019.
