The Current War Trailer Debut: Benedict Cumberbatch Is Thomas Edison

https://www.wired.com/story/the-current-war-trailer-debut?mbid=nl_090717_daily&CNDID=%%CUST_ID%%Director Alfonso Gomez-Rejon’s next movie goes deep into the battle to electrify the world. The entire saga is coming to the big screen this fall with The Current War. Directed by Alfonso Gomez-Rejon (Me and Earl and the Dying Girl), the film stars Benedict Cumberbatch as Edison (after playing Alan Turing in The Imitation Game, he’s really got this intense inventor thing down), Michael Shannon as Westinghouse, Nicholas Hoult as Tesla, and promises to be just as much of a knock-down-drag-out brawl as the real thing.

Want to Go Electric but Can’t Afford a Tesla? This Could Be the Answer

by Paul A. Eisenstein @ NBC News

At a plant in the northern suburbs of Detroit — a factory that nearly shut down when GM entered bankruptcy six years ago — the automaker has begun to ramp up production of the new Chevrolet Bolt EV.

Think of it as battery-car 2.0. At an EPA-estimated 238 miles per charge, the Chevy hatchback will deliver almost three times the range of most first-generation battery-electric vehicles. But at a starting MSRP of just $37,495 — or less than $30,000 after applying $7,500 in federal tax credits — the Bolt is less than half the price of the current mileage champ, the Tesla Model S.
