About the film

Amid the collapse of Weinstein Studios in 2017, Alfonso Gomez-Rejon (Me And Earl And The Dying Girl) was able to stay under the radar and complete his sumptuously produced drama without the interference of the now-disgraced producer. Thomas Edison (Benedict Cumberbatch) is a celebrity inventor on the verge of bringing electricity to Manhattan. On the eve of triumph, his plans are upended by charismatic businessman George Westinghouse (Michael Shannon) who believes he and his partner, upstart genius Nikolai Tesla (Nicholas Hoult), have a superior idea. As Edison and Westinghouse grapple for who will power the future, they spark one of the greatest corporate feuds in American history.
