Hi Sana, those are the international release dates listed on IMDb, but there may well be more. It would be great if you find out about Germany and let us know!

The same goes for all our international forumers, please come and tell us when the film is opening in your country - and more importantly about Damien's character if you see it!

There is really only 1 thing I want to know about this film - DOES DAMIEN HAVE A MASSIVE MOUSTACHE & SIDEBURNS AND ARE THEY AS MASSIVE AS MICHAEL SHANNON'S, MATTHEW MACFADYEN'S AND NICOLAS HOULT'S?

Please do come and share your thoughts, I'd love to hear!

Such a fab cast in the film, did we know that Craig Roberts was also in it?

Still no mention anywhere of how much Damien's lawyer character Bourke Cockran features in the new director's cut of the film.

Reviews are middling, but this one from the irish Mail does mention Damien briefly!

I have finally, finally seen Damien in The Current War!

All I can say is how super proud I feel as a fan to see him in this epic feature film alongside Michael Shannon!

Also, the costume, the hair, the everything!

Also, having been led to believe he was in a 'blink and miss it' role, I was very pleasantly surprised at how much he appeared, compared to my expectations. In total Bourke Cockran is in 4  scenes. Yes they are short, but my goodness, important scenes! In a film where it could be said that most of the actors are underused, apart from Cumberbatch and Shannon, I am not complaining!

The first is with Westinghouse (Shannon) who wants Cockran to help him reveal what kind of man Edison is, in a case regarding the use of the 'Westinghouse' AC/DC current for the first electrocution by electric chair. (Thrilling to see Damien with Shannon in this first scene!!)

The second is in the courtroom (the costume! the hair! the holding court! The close-ups!) questioning Edison (Cumberbatch) during trial

The third is post trial, talking about the price of fame with Westinghouse on the courtroom steps (The top hat!) 

The fourth is with Westinghouse eating in a restaurant, talking about their approach and how the others had lied on the stand.

Overall, Westinghouse is portrayed as the good man, not wanting to resort to underhand tactics. Bourke Cockran is both his lawyer and sort of adviser in these few scenes.

Overall, I agree with some of the reviews about how the story could flow better, but it i utterly gorgeous to look at, the camera work is stunning and all the performances are fabulous. 

4 stars overall from me, but Damien's scenes get 10 stars. highfive

Really happy I've seen TCW too Sana, it's been a loooooooong wait!

New release dates are on Imdb for Switzerland, but I also saw somewhere on Facebook that it will be released Switzerland, Germany and Austria 21 November! Crossing fingers for you fingerscrossed

So there are 2 votes in our forum poll for the film - woohoo! It would be great to hear from the other voter!

Glad you've seen it , domino, and that Damien has more than a 'blink and you'll miss him' role.
I'm still basically housebound at the moment so unable to go to the cinema, but I'm waiting for the DVD to come out!

Hi Ellie, yes it is by no means blink and miss it! It is a small but significant role and in the context of this incredible film, well worth the wait.

Yes, me too with the DVD, it has to arrive soooooon. How great it will look in our DaMo collections! fingerscrossed
