IFC Films "Tesla" Official Trailer And Premiere Date Revealed

Tesla release date is scheduled for August 21, 2020. The film "Tesla" (directed by Michael Almereida) managed this year to "get" its premiere at the prestigious Sundance film festival in January, even before cinemas around the world began to close due to the pandemic. Moreover, he managed to get his first award at this festival, the Alfred P. Sloan award for the best feature film. Today, July 10, when it is 164 years since the birth of the famous inventor, the official trailer of the picture has appeared. The creators hope to show it in cinemas that will reopen.

In the story, visionary Nikola Tesla is fighting an uphill battle to bring his revolutionary electrical system to life. The film follows Tesla's uneasy relationship with Thomas Edison and George Westinghouse. Another line focuses on Tesla's interaction with the financial Titan J. P. Morgan, whose daughter Ann Eva Hewson shows more than casual interest in the inventor.

The creators emphasize that scientific drama is very relevant today, in particular by demonstrating how to challenge conventions. And when they release the trailer, they cite a funny historical fact: Nikola Tesla was born during a thunderstorm. Well, there are enough lightning bolts in the trailer, including electrical discharges. Apparently, in the movie-too.
