DAMIEN MOLONY | 'THE CURRENT WAR' | news & discussion
Permalink  
 

The themes of The Current War are indeed fascinating Susan and while historical, there will also be relevance to current times. I am less interested in the politics, the battle between two moguls, than the awesomeness of their inventions, and that is what I hope to see lots of in this film.

We have a little about Damien's Bourke Cockran in this topic, but if you stumble across more interesting stuff please do come and add it here, I for one would be very interested to read!

There is still no release date yet, or info on how it will be released. At this stage I wonder if a theatrical release is still on the cards or straight to VOD? Either way please let it see the light of day soon!

The Current War has a release date for Korea - January 2019!

Hopefully this is the first of many international releases from Lantern!

 

I was secretly hoping there would be a new trailer though - with a certain Mr Molony in it!

Well I'm starting to feel ever more optimistic that we'll finally get to see this film.  Lucky Korea!!

Interesting!



From google translate:

"Today in London, the last shooting day of my long-suffering project The War of Currents / The Current War. Work on the film lasted 5 years and is worthy of a separate film novel. Benedict Cumberbatch (who played Thomas Edison) will finally tell the world about what kind of “war” electricity has come to our homes! Soon on the screens!"
 
Let's hope for 2 things in 2019: 1. that the film was re-cut to include more Damien and 2. It is actually released SOON!

Here is an article in The Washington Post mentioning 'The Current War.'

It's good to know there is a bidding war around the film - but I thought Lantern had already bought it, with 13 Films distributing. Perhaps that is just for international distribution and this refers to domestic?

BUT THIS SENTENCE IS SOO EXCITING

"The movie has been recut since its Toronto 2017 showing, with Martin Scorsese even giving notes to the director"

Martin bloody Scorsese! action

Sounds like we may get to see it after all this time. If recut means more Damien not less, I'm happy 😊 I would just like to see him on the big screen (saw 'Kill my Friends' on streaming not in the cinema).

 Yes, exactly Ellie, but the Kemmler story was completely relevant to the war between Edison and Westinghouse, so cutting it would be crazy! 

It's always preferable to for a film to get a theatrical release and be seen on a big screen, always. But at this point, VOD, straight to DVD, I don't care - just let us see it! action
