Watch: The Current War trailer

Benedict Cumberbatch and Michael Shannon lead the cast of upcoming drama The Current War.

Set in the late 1880s, The Current War details the rivalry between Thomas Edison and George Westinghouse and the race to create a marketable and sustainable electricity system. Edison championed the use of a direct current for electric power distribution over an alternating current, which was backed by Westinghouse Electric and a host of European companies.

The pair are joined in the film by Nicholas Hoult, Katherine Waterston, Tom Holland, Matthew Mcfadyen and Tuppence Middleton.

The Current War is set for release in the US on November 24 and the UK on January 5.
