The last few seconds of The Current War trailer are what make it exciting for us. At first we thought it was going to be another story about how great an inventor Edison was, when, in reality, he was just really good at filing patents. But the last beat of the trailer is the introduction of Nikola Tesla, an actual genius, and whose inclusion means at least part of this movie is going to have to wrestle with the fact that Edison was a dick to Tesla his entire life. If they do it well, this might actually be an entertaining movie about the world’s massive shift to electrical power. If they decided to take a more revisionist stance, at least the internet backlash is going to be entertaining.
