Many theaters are still not open in the US. Some have had to close again due to health restrictions being put back in place or simply due to a lack of people coming in. While many big-name movies are pushing their release dates back even further, or choosing to premiere overseas first, a number of movies are still determined to make their way to theaters.
There’s only one new release this week, but it looks to be an interesting one. It’s a biopic of the inventor Nikola Tesla, who had many breakthroughs in the age of electricity and had a famous rivalry with Thomas Edison.
A freewheeling take on visionary inventor Nikola Tesla, his interactions with Thomas Edison and J.P. Morgan’s daughter Anne, and his breakthroughs in transmitting electrical power and light.
