"The Current War" trailer

The epic story of the cutthroat competition between the greatest inventors of the industrial age (Thomas Edison and George Westinghouse) over whose electrical system would power the new century. Backed by J.P. Morgan (Matthew Macfadyen), Edison (Benedict Cumberbatch) dazzles the world by lighting Manhattan. But Westinghouse (Michael Shannon), aided by Nikola Tesla (Nicholas Hoult), has seen fatal flaws in Edison’s direct current design. Igniting a war of currents, Westinghouse and Tesla bet everything on risky and dangerous alternating current.

Also stars also stars Katherine Waterston (Marguerite Westinghouse), Tom Holland (Samuel Insull) and Tuppence Middleton (Mary Edison).

Benedict Cumberbatch, Elisabeth Moss to Star in Jane Campion’s New Film


Benedict Cumberbatch and Elisabeth Moss will star in Jane Campion’s new film, “The Power of the Dog”

It's an adaptation of the Thomas Savage novel.

The novel tells a story of wealthy Montana brothers Phil (Cumberbatch) and George Burbank. Phil is graceful, brilliant and cruel, while George is stolid, fastidious and gentle. Together, they are joint owners of the biggest ranch in their Montana valley. When George secretly marries local widow Rose (Moss), an angry Phil wages a sadistic, relentless war to destroy her by using her son Peter as a pawn.


Are you here for this acting pairing, ONTD?

'Avengers Endgame' breaks into the Thursday box office with record $60M

To the total surprise of no one, 'Avengers Endgame' shattered yet another box office record (it already made over $100M in China on Wednesday, and $169M overall in international markets on Wed.), this time in North America.

Ignoring the budget/marketing (which I expect totaled half a billion easily), 'Avengers Endgame' started off its US/Canada box office with $60M on Thursday night in 4,600 (the biggest wide release ever), and is anticipated to make around $280M-$300M alone domestically this weekend, shattering the previous weekend record held by its predecessor, 'Infinity War' ($257.4M domestic; $640.5M overall domestic).

The previous Thursday record was held by 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' ($57M). Spoilers under cuts, etc.

'The Current War' To Receive New Cut, Wide Release

- The Current War will finally receive a wide release this summer from upstart 101 Studios.
- The film stars Benedict Cumberbatch, Michael Shannon and Nicholas Hoult, and is about the battle to light the World's Fair and bring electricity to America.
- A rushed cut of the film premiered at TIFF in 2017, shortly before The Weinstein Company imploded, where it was poorly received. It was originally scheduled to come out Thanksgiving 2017, but was shelved after the collapse of TWC.
- Lantern Entertainment, which acquired TWC, wanted to do a quick release of the film overseas to make some money off the film, but was legally prevented from doing so because of a clause in executive producer Martin Scorsese's contract that required him to sign off on the release.
- Director Alfonso Gomez-Rejon has recut the film, adding five scenes but cutting down the overall runtime of the original edit. He knew the version that premiered at TIFF was not ready, and found it torturous to watch. Gomez-Rejon was absolutely thrilled to get the chance to make the changes he'd planning all along.
- 101 Studios paid $3 million for the rights to the film, which is looking at an August wide release.


Quite an interesting turn of events.
