Tesla trailer is a lightening deal. Looks highly promising
Directed by Michael Almereyda, Tesla trailer is jaw-dropping. It is a biographical drama on the famous scientist, Nikola Tesla, and his vision on the world-changing, phenomenal invention of Alternate Current. The trailer gives an unusual outlook towards this film, hinting towards a non-commercial, serious film.
Tesla trailer begins with Nikola Tesla, gazing at lightening. Establishing itself by introducing us to how the thought of famous AC current may have popped up in Tesla’s mind, the trailer progresses through the life of Nikola Tesla and the hitches he faced, the contradictions, etc.
It stars Ethan Hawke as Nikola Tesla and Eve Hewson, Kyle MacLachlan, Jim Gaffigan etc.
The film is written by the director himself, Michael Almereyda. He is also one of the producers along with Uri Singer, Christa Campbell, Isen Robbins, Lati Grobman, and Per Melita.
The visuals quality, though syncs to the film’s mood, seems low budget. But if it is intentional or not, cannot be told until the film releases!
It also has Edison as one of the primary characters. Opening to positive reviews at Sundance Film Festival 2020, the film is expected to release on Aug 21st, 2020. But we suspect if the release may get postponed or shifted to any OTT platform.
